Do you have any better pics? I am rather confused as to the purpose of this thing.

The castings remind me vaguely of Rockwell, but I am stumped.

this is the only pic he has. You can pull this type way out from the main column in order to gain more throat depth and also the head turns for angles.

I don't have zoom in capabilities to see the badges any better...

Ive had a few radial arm drills, I just didnt understand the purpose of a radial with such a tiny lightweight table. Normally youd move/angle the head bc parts are too heavy to move/angle, but in this case you couldnt put a heavy part on it without breakage. Strange, this is a new one for me....

Various of the gurus on OWWM.org could tell you more than you'd want to know about that ;-)

Those guys are incredible when it comes to 'arn'

I think I saw one of those in far rougher condition, with a missing quill
at Goodwill.

I wish now that I'd bought it, considering what I know now about how many people on OWWM.org might've had the missing quill
or interest in the other parts.

Or how I could have put my Delta head on the same shaft and had a floor DP.

Those are light duty, mostly woodworking. For that, being able to drill to the center of large workpieces, being able to drill at angles, it's handy. A metalworking radial drill weighs several hundred to several thousand pounds.

I've got a Delta version and within its' very limited capabilities, it's fine.
