    Default Tough Drill press emblem

    Probably a very long shot, but... if you donít ask you donít know..

    Iím looking for the pulley cover emblem for a Tough drill press. Winged type as per the photo.
    Donít mind if itís original or a reproduced piece as long as itís dimensionally accurate.

    Even if someone has one and have/could get it cast as a replacement, as I doubt anyone would have a spare.

    I have a Tough here but it is missing the wings as per the previous owner... who still can't find them.

    If anyone local had one I could make a copy of it and print a replacement.

    Mine is missing the badge completely. Iím realistic enough to understand I almost certainly wonít find an original. I would consider going down the path of have a small run of them cast if there were enough people that wanted them and we could dig up an accurately dimensioned drawing to start from.

    Good Evening Mr High Speed Juvenile Frog!
    Is this what you are looking for? It is not for sale, but I have a friend who is a "gun" at investment casting in brass / bronze. He may be able to make a couple, as I need a second one. Any other takers if it can be done?
    Regards,
    Alan.

    Tough Emblem.
    I saw my friend Laurie last night. He said the emblem was sand cast and made of aluminium. He will investigate reproduction.
