At long last I've got my hands on a brierley drill grinder. I think it may be a ZB 11 but can find no numbers. No manual, no cams.The motor runs. The motor/grinder is moved by a lever and the 4jaw chuck would seem good for about 16mm. The manuals are available at a big price. Does anybody know anything about these machines ? Noel.

Hi Chris, I have been intouch with Brierley/chester. Though my machine shows little wear it's an early model for which no spares are available. I don't know what model it is, yet. My only option is to A) try to adapt a cam from the later ZB25 or B) make one from scratch. I await a reply as to wether A is possible or if brierley can offer any help with a sketch or drawing with plan B. The protrusion of the drill bit beyond the chuck has to be set by a Gauge, there is a graduated bar behind and below the chuck though it's purpose is at the moment unclear. It's markings I think refer to drill diameter in 32nd of an inch,0 to20 which would tally with it having a capacity of 5/8" Having looked at some youtube vids they only give a vauge idea as to how it works. At the moment any help or advice would be useful. Noel

Brierleys man says it's a ZB 2,and about 50 years old ! The next task is to find out what the setting gauge for the protrusion of the drill bit looks like and make one. The cam for a ZB 25 is £92, and may not fit. I don't paying IF it will work !

Where are you based Baz ?
