I have an air rachet hanging right there. You don't have to hold it. The hammering will tighten or loosen it.

I just recently acquired a Central Machine Model 981 Drill/Mill.
If you still have the manual, I'd deeply appreciate a pdf copy.
If you don't have a scanner I do, and I would return your original document, plus your shipping cost with a digital PDF copy on CD too.

Thanks, I already downloaded both the Enco and the Horrible Freight manuals and they are similar but not even close. My R8 spindle looks way more different.

This is the skin.. My 3in1 came with diagram is a bit backwards in the drawing but the mill drill part is identical to yours don't know how much help this would be... just points to a part and then has a chart with part number and what they call the part...

Thank you, platypus20 has a copy he is sending me. I have a 1985 Jet 6x19 Lathe (Myford Taiwan copy) and a 2007 Horrible Freight 3in1.

This 1986 Central Machine Model 981 Drill/Mill is large than a 3in1 and weighs 700+ pounds. My 3in1 is only 560 pounds.

Drain the oil in your 3in1, my headstock sump was full of casting sand and cosmoline. It was not discovered until 8 months ago when the seals began leaking and the spindle bearings showed unadjustable runout.

I purchased this 981 mill to repair the Lathe Headstock casing bores of my 3in1, I've already made new shafts and bushings on my JET Lathe.

Is your 3in1 three phase ? the guy I got it from said it was and to my surprise it is.....

any way its ben in the crate for 20 years and will prolly stay in it a bit longer until I have time to do things for my self....

My friend that I got it from said to me the other day, I should just trade it off for something I want or need...

But eh I really don't need it either, I have allot of things I really don't need an allot of thigs I want... I prolly don't need...

No my Harbor Freight 44142 3in1 is 120V single phase, I wish it were 220V.

my 3in1 looks like your mil drill no where's close to the red one an has no threading abilities other than manual tap an die method
And in all honesty no one not even HF can tell me why this one I have came in 3ph others tell me being it is so old is prolly why but others who bought their machines from the same time said theirs is 230v
So mine is a bit confusing as to the power required but as one of my machinist buddies said don't bitch I'm better off with it being 3ph anyhow...

That might be debatable being such a small light duty machine..
but again heck what do I know....
