This improved and novel bearing has but a single spherical ball fitting in a socket or depression on the bottom end of the screw-threaded shaft or adjustable abutment by which the rotary spindle or shaft proper of the drill is fed up and down, the top end of the spindle having a recess or cavity containing a flat hardened disk on which the ball bears."
