  1. Yeah apparently the guy has had it for years and used it off and on throughout and never had any issues, but he had the correct drill. He's unwilling to sell it though as he still uses it. The model wore off it as well apparently so the most info he could give me about it was "2 speed hitachi drill". As I mentioned before, I'm crazy enough to use it at least until I can afford something decent worth buying because I'm doing everything on the cheap right now.
  2. That's another thing I was thinking of doing, it's just the whole mounting process that will give me touble then, I got it going (I held it in place and turned it on) and it cuts fine, but if I let go of the drill it'll just flop to the bench as there's nothing holding it to the saw. I'll take some photos or a video later if that helps if you don't get what I mean.
  3. And I thought this was going to be simple. I'll do some digging and see what I can find. Thanks for the suggestion!
  4. Wow I'm impressed you found it xD I didn't even bother to look for the serial because I thought it was all just a bunch of Japanese, plus I was in a bit of a rush lol. I actually have the jigsaw attachment, I'll add pics later, it mounts in the same way and is also pretty interesting.
  5. Cutting small pieces of wood and or metal with the cut off discs for blade smithing. I'm a student at the moment so I'm trying to put together a workshop on the cheap (building my own anvil, work benches etc).
  6. Yeah, I haven't seen anything like it before.
  7. Exactly, it seems hitachi built their early drills to have a chuck mounted on the same size as a 115mm size grinder bolt but with a finer thread? Whereas all my old drills have the chuck thread into the drill.
  8. I bought it because of the price and its uniqueness. I got it for 10 NZD plus it came with blades, metal cutting discs etc and also a jigsaw drill attachment which I'm also having the same issue with.
  9. That was my original thought and plan until I realised if I do that the drill has no support while in the box, maybe I could build a mount, but then I wouldn't be able to adjust the depth of the saw. It's frustrating xD
  10. That is correct, but the bit has to come out of the drill after the chuck is removed if that makes sense? So I would have to take a smaller thread that fits the hole in the drill then step it up to a bigger thread that fits the bit for the saw. Just seems like a lot of trouble :/
  11. I can't seem to find a thing online and everything is in Japanese :/ That's what I thought and was hoping someone had an idea has to what model it would be? It's the right size for my black and decker grinder but the thread is too fine one the attachment. I tried something like that but it would stay upright in the box of the saw because with the chuck on the clamp that holds the collar can't reach the collar of the drill. That's exactly what I need at this point really so any ideas you have would be appreciated. Cheers.
  12. The bit is supposed to thread onto the we're the chuck removes, but my chick threads into my drill if that makes sense? I'm very new to this so I probably misunderstood your question.That's where is attaches to the drill and the other side has three pins which drive the saw
  13. No problem man, I will probably end up doing that if I can't figure this thing out. Thanks anyway dude.
  14. No I cannot as I purchased it from an auction site
  15. Recently I purchased a drill powered Tablesaw (Hitachi branded). But it seems very specific to what model drill I can actually use to power it. I've tried several old drills I have and have had no luck (either the collar was too small and the drill wouldn't stay put or the bit that attaches after taking off the chuck wouldn't fit because the shank was too small or the thread not fine enough). I was hoping someone out there could tell me what drill I need to get this thing up and running or had any ideas on what else I could do to get it running? Thanks to all in advance!
