Default NEW to me Central Machine Model 981 Drill/Mill

I purchased a Central Machine Model 981 Drill/Mill Manual, it has a manufactured date of 1986 and I am looking for the Original Owners Manual.

I have manuals on the WRONG FU, ENCO, Horrible Fright and so many others, too many differences in the quill and head elevation gears and setup.

Is there something in particular you need? If all you have is a drill/mill there isn't much difference between brands and not much that you really need a manual to figure out...

All I can ask is forgive me.

Jack, pull your ear four times then say Marry Poppins five times and then kick the can twice... and will all forgive-ya...

Now more on a serious note, It seems that the new year has not come with a lot of new or good change for many of us... as it still seems to of left us with a lot of the same issues many of us tried to square away and leave behind
so don't feel like the LoneRanger... better days are ahead of us atleast I have to believe it.

I fully understand family life, health and work. Well work ,,, no one will hire me anymore because I have an Implanted Cardio Defibrillator Implant and their Workers Comp will not cover me and they won't accept any liability. Good thing I retired from the Navy and then the state of SC. Social Security isn't enough to cover my mortgage.

I got the manual you sent in the mail and I will be sending you a digital copy of what you sent me.
You won't ever have to mail another copy because you'll have a digital copy to eMail.
The mill image on the CD is off the manual front cover minus the milling tool in the R8 that I removed.
I'll mail it out Monday to you.
