Hi all, new poster here – looking for advice. I have an old Delta drill press (pm-1526). It has a mortising attachment (pm 1704 I take it) that appears to be complete, although partially installed on a wooden fence. It has a 1/3hp Atlas motor. The motor runs and the spindle turns, so as far as I can tell it is in working order. It was given to me by my uncle many years ago when I had high ambitions of woodworking. After a long period of no projects at all, I am now going to start a plywood/fiberglass boat, and need the workshop space being taken up by this drill, whcih I do not anticipate ever having any use for.

I have looked on ebay (and googled) and didnt find any record of one of these selling. I figured something this old might be of value, at least for parts. Obviously, if I sold it it would have to be picked up (I live in South Carolina). Any one have any clue what this might bring or if it is even worth listing on ebay as a local pickup?

Thanks for advice.

Just list it as a drill press at a price of $150.00. Don’t mention that it also comes with a mortice chisel holder attached. Anyone who looks at it and knows much about drill presses will know that they can remove the chisel holder and have a normal working drill.
