    Buffalo 15 inch Drill Press - $150

    In my town... Wish I needed another drill press, or had a larger shop with lots of storage....(dark closets...)

    There is some really nice old iron stuff out there....

    I have the Steel City drill press but I'd buy that one in a heart beat if it were close enough!

    I guess it must be an advantage to live in a highly populated area, because NOTHING of any woodworking interest ever comes up on craiglist anywhere even reasonably close to my area, and even anything that might occasionally be advertised in the local rags is normally overpriced "JUNK". I've tried to make a connection a few times on items in the DFW area but that covers a 300 to 400 mile distance from me and by the time I can get there the items are already sold. (too much local "Buyer Competition")

    Don,

    I have a new Steel City DP too...as well as my Atlas! http://familywoodworking.org/forums/...2&postcount=14

    Still a shame to let something like this get away, especially so close.

    Norman,

    Our Craigslist covers Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia, Bellevue/Eastside.... Probably half the population of Western Washington within an hours drive... We're pretty lucky...or unmercifully tempted...

    Nice drill press for sure. Looks like a 4" spindle travel? It has the jack shaft so it probably has some very low and very high speeds. Big heavy base.

    I spent 4th of July week in Seattle years ago. Very different place and I suspect a lot of craftsman and artistic types are attracted there. So it seemed to me anyway. So I suspect that has at least something to do with all the tools there.

    Here it's rare to find anything. I found the Queen City Grinder on Craiglist
    but that is the only thing I have found so far. But I still check it daily.

    Don, the Buffalo floor press in my first post pic is really nice. I hope my Atlas eventually looks that nice.....
