Hello everyone. I have been looking for a bigger drill press since my move here (3 yrs ). I have smaller ones, they do not have the power to work with my corner block bits. I have two different styles of Mortise chisels that adapt to drill press, the little drills do not have the right collar to use them. I once had a craftsman 15” floor model and I liked it. (sold it when I moved). Well wait and yea shall receive. Went to auction ,there it was, 15” craftsman, waved my hand ,bought it. Yesterday looking at Kijiji and a old bench top mortise drill was listed, looked at it in afternoon, it wanted to come home with me as well, while I was chatting with the guy I mentioned I collect OLD tools, he had a gleam in his eye and asked if I ever seen one of these, went to drawer and brought out a MINTY “stanley 55” with all blades , original box, book,etc. With a straight face I asked how much, IT CAME home with me as well.(I am embarrased to disclose the price) WHY did this happen so close to the season where we have to travel and buy grandkids so much ?
Have a safe and happy holiday season everyone !
