    Drill press problem solved

    I have had a 14" General International drill press for sale for a while. The only response I got was from a fellow on craigslist that proceeded to tell me how I was price gouging. I had it $100 cheaper that Woodcraft and had used it 3 or 4 times. The light bulb went off. I want a bench drill press, I have a floor drill press, a friend has a horizontal band saw. Pulled the head and the base and gave the post a whack. I now have a bench top drill press and a hunk of post with a sleeve fitting that I can add back if I ever want a floor model again. Photos if I ever find my camera. I think it is 200 miles west of here.

    We have the same drill press! At least we did before you took yours to the chop shop! Glad to here you found a good solution to your issue. Every woodworker should have a machinist friend - it just makes so many things easier.
