This is a walker turner DP1040 drill press that I picked up off CL. I disassembled it and cleaned it up. It has a slow speed attatchment on top and I recently put on link belts. I works really nice. Almost no play in the quill at all. more pics of the parts

Nice clean up and restoration. It reminds me of an old Buffalo drill press I once had.

Great restoration Marc! You did a fantastic job. I recently bought a WT band at an estate sale for $50.00 that I plan on doing the same thing to. (soon as I have time)

Great job. Makes me feel bad for not doing an old Armstrong lathe I’ve got gathering dust… ;0)

I love seeing the restoration of old machinery. You brought that drill press out of the ashes like a phoenix!
I bet it lasts you 40 years or more now that it will get proper care.
The CL seller would pass out if they saw the “old hunk o junk in the basement” after your lovely work.
Well done Marc :)

These are super cool, I drove 4 hours to pick up a floor model and don’t regret it a bit, these tools have alot of character.

Wow! Amazing restoration. It looks like it might have been made in the 1930s. Do you know how old it is?
