I’m looking for a drill press….
Been searching the Vermont CL for one.
Looked at this one & almost jumped on it.
However, I want more spindle travel than this DP.
That & I want a full HP, not just 3/4HP….

DIY, why didn’t you tell me this before now? I’ve been letting them all go by, not knowing. Any particular color preference? ;)

Pickled Brain, err Picklehead,
No real preference on color…. I have paint!!!

I did send off an email, for a little more information.
I really do want 1HP & 4” of spindle travel, but for $100.00….
I could get this, then wait til another comes along.
I then could easily sell this for what I paid for it.

D.., I’ll keep my eyes open for you. Pretty sure I see that combination at least once a week. Cold enough at your place this morning? I’ve got twenty below.

I see a few older DPs listed regularly….
But I just recently started to look for them.

It’s warm here…. INSIDE!!!
We’re at -10 now….
Not sure what wind chill is???

I’ve been in contact with the seller….
He is holding the DP for me, until Saturday.
That is the earliest I can make the 2.5 hour (one-way) trip.

Since I’ll be 3/4 of the way to Springfield, Mass….
I’m going to stop in at “The WoodWorking Show” at the Eastern States Exposition.
I better check the balance in my checking account and on my plastic debt increasers!!!

Thanks, Fred. However, celebration is not called for until it is in MY possession!!!

Mr. P,
In honor of a fellow LJer & “Stumpy Nubber” buddy, known as “Our International Woman of Intrigue”....
aka LJ Sandra or to us Nubbers as 74!!! I will paint it…. PINK!!! Hey, it isn’t a hammer!!!

Awesome. I think you definitely passed the CL test that I use when I buy something, mainly “can I resell it for what I have in it?” I bought a Delta 17-950 off CL, and it only has 1/2 hp. I haven’t used it for anything really tough yet, but I haven’t found the lack of power to be an issue. Enjoy your bit-go-round. Do you think the pinkness will make it easier or harder to resell?

Yup, if I can’t get what I paid for it….
It could be a costly mistake!!!

I’m sure that a non-profit, teaching women the trades, would jump on it!!!
