I used to run a drill press that was about 18’ high and had a six speed transmission. We used it to bore bearing blocks for sawmill equipment. It was used in Rome GA during WWII to drill shell casings. I think we paid $750 for it, and it cost several hundred just to get it moved into the shop in Statham. That was one heck of a noisy machine too…
