So there I am, happily drilling 2 1/2 inch holes in logs for some pretty cool tea light rustic candle holders, when the white smoke appeared and whisked the life right out of my drill press.
Well it’s pretty reliable and I’m happy with it, plus I have a mortising rig for it, so I’d like to see if I can salvage my press.
It’s a delta, 12” benchtop drill press I bought about 6 years ago at Lowes. I don’t mind replacing it if the motor will cost more than $100, but anything less and it doesn’t make sense throwing it out. But I can’t find a replacement motor anywhere!
-- I love woodworking. Except sanding, gluing, cutting long stock, finishing, detail work, sawdust, the cost and loss of time. :)
