I got an old Rockwell 378 drill - same as model 634/635. This is the
old single-speed beast with the D-handle on the back that will rip your
arm off if you get it hung up! Anyway, I took it apart and cleaned it
up, re-lubed gear reduction unit, etc. Ran pretty sweet until the
field coil I forgot to put the screws back in turned in the housing,
shorted, and burnt open! @&$#*!
Pretty much everything but the field coil is good - e-mail if you need
parts. Pricing will be very reasonable (but will double for any smart
remarks about what happened ;).
Since Wally posted about his drill in 2006, I'm going to
guess that he no longer has it available, either to supply
parts or to repair the motor.
Y'know, looking up the date on these ancient posts is not
hard work. I dunno why folk can't do it before they post.
Surely that depends on the client software. Mine only shows articles
posted since the last time I accessed the newsgroup, making it impossible
to accidentally reply to a decade-old post.
Google news, on the other hand, forgot about human interface design
when creating their replacement for dejanews.
Only for the ones which look suspiciously old.
I find it amusing when someone tries to answer a decade old
question, where the original asker has undoubtably either
solved it or given up expecting an answer years ago. But
I would have thought people would prefer not to provide
