Topic tags/keywords: drill press drill radial grizzly

I have a Grizzly G9969 radial drill press that I need gone! I’m looking to go to a “smaller” more traditional standing unit. I’ve just got a one car garage and this thing takes up too much space. Trades for a floor model will be considered, but I also need a decent jointer, and cabinet saw…so let’s work something to get this out of my place!

Where you located?
That thing weighs over 500lbs.

Knoxville, Tennessee.

I’ve got the ability to deliver for the right situation (and not more than what could be done in a day). It’s also mounted on a shop-made mobile base at the moment, so with our trailer it wouldn’t be incredibly hard. If you need to take it up or down stairs I recommend taking it apart into 3 pieces. It’s not too bad this way, and the heaviest piece is probably the base at maybe 250ish lbs (rough estimate). I mounted it on the base by myself with this method, and I’m young, but only weigh about 150 myself!

Wow, nice drill. But i live to far away.

Years ago I worked in a shop that built rotary snow plows. The big ones you see on airports, highways. I used an old Radial, articulated arm drill press. probably was built during WWII. Could move the head over about a 5 foot area. I was drilling holes in cast iron housings to bolt together to make gear boxes. That was a drill and a half.

Randy,

I’ll drive it up to your door and wheel it in your shop for a small delivery fee! I charge $150 per hour…at about a 40 hour drive…x2 for the return trip…seems like a deal from my perspective! Just kidding. (in case anyone actually thinks I’d charge that!)

Well, I’m not too terribly far away, in Pulski (1 hr south of Nashville) but it would still be a day trip. You didn’t mention a price.

With shipping it’s currently priced at 850ish on grizzly’s website. It’s in what i would consider good condition, but I know I’ve got a small market for something like this beast. How’s 450 sound? I’d be willing to drive out to pulaski for $100. That would cover my gas there and back I believe.

Do you still have the drill press? If so, what will you take for it? Have a project that it might work for. What kind of shape is it in? How old is it?
