Old Metabo Sb 800/6 S-automatic Drill Restoration
Hey guys. Decided it was again time for another restoration video. A good friend of mine found an old Drill in his basement manufactured by Metabo.
It is the Metabo Sb 800/6 S-automatic with a power input of 220 V alternate currents, 4 Amps and 800 Watts pulling from the socket built probably in the early 1980's.
It uses a 1.5 - 13mm or 1/2-20 UNF (Unified National Fine) drillhead.
It's has a power performance of 900 RPM on low setting and can reach up to 2000 RPM on max settings.
Judging by the overall symptoms of wear and tear, it served pretty much heavy duty in it's old days.
Still I think it deserves a second chance to shine again.
What has been refurbished:
The whole drill got a fresh paint with it's iconic colors the company Metabo lives by which are Red, Darkgreen, Silver
All ballbearings have been replaced with new ones
New Drillhead and chuck purchased and mounted
Old lubricant for the transmission has been cleaned off and fresh new applied.
Talking about cleaning, the entire drill has been cleaned, from the inside and outside as well.
