I have a late 70’s model metallic green Powermatic 1150A variable speed 15” floor standing drill press for sale. The press is in excellent condition and has only seen light use in its lifetime. It was purchased from a local college and used in the drama dept. It has the original factory 3/4hp sinlge phase, dual voltage 115/230V, BALDOR motor. This model is the reeves drive varibale speed not the step pulley model. There is no changing belt locations to change speeds. The reeves drives allows speed changes on the fly. It has a Jacobs 33 1/2” capacity chuck. The table is in excellent condition with 2 small dings in it, no through holes. The quill return spring has been replaced with a NEW from Powermatic spring. This press is nice and would a great addition to your shop. I am asking $450 and believe it is worth every penny. A new PM 2800 is currently listed at $900 plus shipping. I think the older machines are built better and will last a lifetime, yours and the grandkids. If you are interested send me a message and we can talk.
