    Default WTB: Center/Intermediate pulley assembly and top belt cover for 12 speed drill press

    I am trying to restore a Forbes Bench Drill Press FDB-16mm 12 speed (1976) that is missing the top belt cover.

    A generic image of the drill press is below (copied from a members post on the woodwork forum) and the belt cover should be roughly in the dimensions of 563 x 190W x 75H:

    I am also hoping to find the Center/Intermediate belt pulley assembly which looks similar to this:

    These are fairly generic drill presses that were rebadged by various manufacturers and most parts should be interchangeable.

    Thanks for the response. No dramas, I am in no rush so I can await your return.

    All I know is that the shaft on the idler/center pulley assembly that mounts to the head of the drill press is roughly 13.5mm in diameter based on my caliper measurements of the mounting hole.

    I have found a center pulley and no longer looking for one.

    I am still interested in finding a belt cover for the pulley assembly similar in dimensions and shape to what we can see below:

    The cover can be described as below:

    The rear end is radiused and the front could be described as squared off with lightly radiused corners. It has a round table.
    If you have one that's gathering dust and you want to give it a new home, lets get in touch and we can work something out.
