So i get a email the other day reminding me there is a drill press for sale on the forum. That was good ole Jay looking out for me like a guardian angle. Paul's widow is still selling Paul's behemoth of a Grizzly Drill press. I had totally forgotten about that and besides the logistics of getting to my place would kill any benefit. Well then I remembered the Ambassador had said something about stopping by Jay on the return trip so i PMed him and sure enough he said buy it and we will make a plan to get it to his place.
So i put in a bid which Jay kindly presented and Melissa agreed to and so i now am proud to say i am the new owner of a Grizzly 20" 1,5HP 4&3/4 stroke floor mount drill press. Its more than i was bargaining for in the next step of replacing my benchtop but for the price and the size its a wonderful solution. Comes with a trip to Michigan to visit my buddy to pick it up and he has offered temp storage till i get to do so.
So hows this for a totally family affair . Thats what you call family having your back. A big big THANK YOU to Jay , Larry and Melissa you guys made my day making this a possibility. ............Ok Larry you got to come home now i want to pick up my drill press and feel a trip to Mi coming on.
Had me thinking of the incredible Beetles song....just what would we do without friends....
