I love it, really a useful and quiet tool.
Ohhh and much more pleasing to look at than a drill press.

Ron, if it works half as good as it looks, you’ve got a total winner. The handle is a nice touch, too. I’m guessing some holes for holdfasts are in the offing. Galoot Index is off the charts for this one, thanks for taking us along for the ride!

All right! A drill press that works without electricity. Nice work.

I really like the Roubo sliding dovetail with the legs and the slab top, nicely done.

Ron, somehow my post seems to have left the interwebz!

Great tool and a grease box to boot! Excellent . It’s been fun and educational watching the build.

Thanks to you all for the compliments! Yes, this was a fun and educational build, from the lessons in Italian, to the engineering considerations, to the Roubo sliding dovetails, and even to little grease pot, while the whole time maintaining the unplugged motif. Now off to my next endeavour … thanks again guys!

Oh my, I almost forgot … and thank you, Giacomo Ferdinando Sievers!
 

 
Yes, Knockknock … from a picture to a working tool!
 

Smitty, you’re right … it needs a few holes for a holdfast and perhaps a dog or two!

Interesting. Have you made any attempt to use Forstner bits in this contraption? Mostly I’ve found if I’m using auger bits in a brace I can stay pretty close to square. My drill press is indispensable for the occasion when I need to clear out a mortise or adjust the size of a hole with a Forstner bit.
