Radial drills like this sell for $350+/-new. Used price will depend on how sloppy things are as there are many points to add slop. Around here I’d say $125 is a fair price.

I’d say 10,000$. It’s old so that makes it ridiculously valuable.

I love my old rockwell radial. It not only goes to the center of a 30” circle, it can drill at angles.

I had one of those. The radial feature came in handy on several projects. My main gripe was that the table had to be lifted to raise it—as in, loosen the clamp, grasp it with both hands, wiggle side to side while lifting. No rack and pinion mechanism. Going down was easier, as you gravity in your favor.

Also found it too light for serious metal drilling. Too much flex in the post and arm. Grizzly has two like it—one a bench top, and the other a floor model that looks a lot more robust, and with a real elevation crank. Still wouldn’t prefer it for drilling metal, though. Have been tempted by a couple on CL, but shop is getting too full.
