I have been thinking about adding a bench top drill press to my work shop as my next piece of equipment. I started keeping a look out on Craigslist but then I remembered seeing a very old bench top drill press in my wife’s grandmothers basement. I went to take a look and found a Walker Turner DP 101. It had no motor but after looking around in the basement I found a few motors and pulleys. I was able to find a motor that spun counter clockwise so I took everything home. I cleaned it up a little and looked it over to make sure there were no cracks and everything worked as it should. For an eighty year old machine I was surprised to find it all in working order. I then greased it up and mounted the motor. A quick trip to the auto store to purchase a belt and I was making holes.
