Have you guys ever seen an ancient drill press like this one? It’s old…fortunately for more accurate work, I have access to a 24” radial floor model. This drill press in the accompanying photos is so heavy that I had to build a screw jack to raise and lower the drilling head for adjusting it on the column. I try to avoid this at all costs; I build risers for the drilling table. I think I’m going to build one of those that clamps to the column if I can it square enough the axis of the spindle.
My shops pitiful isn’t it, but it’s a lot more than some people have in this world and it is fun and entertaining. Plus most importantly, it has a Home Depot bucket for a seat so I can sit down and contemplate.
