Craigslist find, Wilton 15” 12 speed ¾ hp ⅝ keyless chuck drill press. $160.00. I don’t think I did too bad since my little bechtop Skil drill press cost $129.00. It needs to be cleaned up but I think with a shop built table on it, it should work great.

Nice, the up and down travel of the bed makes it a decent find, congratulations.

I think you’ll enjoy the stationary DP much more than your bench top. And 3/4 HP is a pretty powerful DP.
