I recently bought this beautiful drill from an auction where it was described as a Meddings. I could see it wasn't but actually looked like a Fobco. It works very well and is beautifully made. As it turns out it isn't a Fobco either. It is made by a company called JGH as i found out when I cleaned some of the grime. The post is a solid piece of steel, not hollow. Weighs about 120K or about 260lbs
Tony at Lathes.co.uk has never heard of them and I cannot find any reference online aside from one guy who asked the same question in 2014 and had no joy.
Surely someone knows something about this machine. It is too good to be just an anonymous company. Any help or advice very welcome.
With great thanks in advance,
