Topic tags/keywords: rockwelldelta drill press

I recently bought a Vintage Craftsman (Companion) drill press so now I have two. One of them has to go, so this is the one.

Nothing wrong with it except I don’t like the color, but that is just my taste. I have it listed on Craigslist for $100.00 but I will sell it to a LJ for $65.00. Sorry to say that because of the size and the weight, you will need to pick it up.

too bad you are so far, these vintage drill press are great machines, way better than most new.

Been used for metal and wood, and I have never been able to stop the motor. The DP that I picked up recently is even older, but I want the other becasue it fits in better with my other Craftsman tools. Just have to find a bandsaw to complete the shop.

Unfortunately this machine uses proprietary bearings that are pricey to buy. It was the only reason I sold my 11-100 and my 220 (14”) drill press because they both use the same proprietary bearings.

I can see where this might be a problem if your drill press has bad bearings, but that isn’t the case with this drill press.

That would fit right in with my other old Rockwell/Delta tools if you were a little closer. The proprietary
bearings rolltopbox was referring to can be gotten around by using machine bushing spacers on some
machines, the bearing has an offset collar, but regular bearings give the same bearing surface and you
just have to compensate for the offset inner race. Even if you have to buy their bearings, it is still less
expensive than replacing the drill press.
