    Old Drill Press........is Home.......... Now the rebuild!!!

    Found this on Auction here........

    I've got the top bid in at about $40 right now, I'll go to about $150.

    It is close enough to go get it, so I save a lot in shipping.

    I need a better drill press, the guy says he does not know much about it, but it all works fine.

    Two hours left...........wish me luck!

    I wish you success!

    What I can see:
    - missing the crank for raising/lowering the table
    - missing the knobs on the ends of the three arms you use to plunge the drill
    - no sign of a power switch either? Where are they hiding that?
    - missing a top cover, but the belts seem mostly protected.
    - table + post look beefy.

    The real test is runout, isn't it? And you can't see that from a photo.
    Still, pretty cheap!

    best,

    Don't need no stinking knobs (I'll turn some!)

    Don't need no stinking crank (I'll weld one up)

    I won't stick my fingers into the belts, so the cover there should be enough!

    The table looks like it got drilled to bits and they then added a 1/2" plate to it, if this works, great!

    Still no one has counter bid, so only 35 minutes left!

    28 minutes to go!

    No counter bids yet!

    Yeah, paint, for sure!

    I'll most likely take it apart and see if it needs anything, and then strip and paint it.

    Fingers and toes crossed!

    Dunno, if I win it, maybe we will start a poll on it
