I am about to pull the trigger in a couple days on a Craftsman 1hp 15” drill press 137.229150. The only owner is an older gentleman who estimates he has had it for 12-15yrs. He claims it has seen very light use. From the pics it looks very clean with no rust or major dirt/greese. He was asking 250 and we already agreed to 150 provided it runs well and is as clean as in the picture.
Is this a suitable drill press for woodworking, home repair and perhaps very light metal work from time to time?
Do you guys think this is a pretty good deal?
Are there any know defects or issues I should keep an eye out for when I go to check it out and give it a test run?
