"Flott TB 10" built in 1987, bought it used for 240.- € with new 13mm Röhm chuck included. I like it but could be bigger though... www.flott.de

Here's a picture of our latest drill press, it's an old picture, the drill press has been in the shop working for the past year but I've neglected to grab any newer photos.

65-1200 RPM, near a ton in weight, and an unstoppable power feed.

It's a Buffalo Forge #22



Maybe I'll get some pictures of our other six drill presses posted up over the next day or two...

Mine isn't worth a picture. It is just a basic Harbor Freight Chinese press that I bought 15-20 years ago.

I don't mean to disappoint you but that "Daytona" is Taiwan-built, like mine. My drill press is an IMS, circa 1991, 5/8" chuck, 16-speed and is rock solid. Works GREAT and I paid $75 for it on Craigslist last year. I had to run fast to beat out about 5 or 6 others from buying it first. BTW, Grizzy also sells those under their name.

Pix show the before photos, ... before I cleaned up the rust from lack of use.

Here's another one of our drill presses.



It's a Walker-Turner baby radial, well suited for the machine shop in work up to 1/2" and with a speed range of roughly 100-8000 RPM it works well with even our smallest commonly used drills.

However with a Bridgeport already in the machine shop along with a 4 spindle production drill and space being at a premium it will soon be moving on to our woodworking shop.

Here's one of the six - a 1910 Avey with a Mopar three-speed tranny added on top. $100 off craigslist:



Here's a small Delta - $50 off craigslist:



Another Delta, also $50:



A Reypo combination lathe, drill press, saw and grinder - $50 (beginning to see a pattern?)



A larger Delta - $35



There is another Delta 220 bench and a Boice-Crane/Dayton floor mounted.

If a precision hole is needed, the Clausing mill is the go-to machine.

Rescued from a decade and a half sitting out in the Alaska weather in some guy's goat yard. The restoration isn't done yet, but it's getting there.

Is it even possible to have just one?



This is my 1972 Monarch / Edlund 1 1/2 F-12 high speed drilling and tapping machine. Works well for holes 3/8" and under in all materials, but excels at high speed tapping.



Here's my 1976 Series II Bridgeport milling machine along with my first drill press! The little China bench drill works well for abrasive coring which I wouldn't dare do on my other machines:



I do most drilling between 3/8" and 1-1/4" on the Bridgeport using this setup:

Bought it for $60, from a tool and die company that was closing.

Before:





Degreased, new bearings, re-wired, painted. Built in Kitchener (where I live) for Buffalo produced by Kitchener Blower and Forge. Actually I bought it from the tooling company that made parts and tooling for these drill presses.
I love this thing.
I fabricated a beefy and ditched the stand it came with.
Now I have my eye open for an older Buffalo to restore.

Nice stand too, you could make a slide in cabinet with drawers to fit in that top section. Keep extra bits and stuff in a similar one I made for my setup.

Old enough to be a floor shift. I suppose if using a large enough tap, sometimes you need reverse to back 'er out!

Thanks. The actual color is identical to the General color, not on purpose, discovered that after the fact..LOL

I plan on enclosing the stand, adding a door on the front.
Eventually all my metal working tools will be mounted on similar stands. Benders, arbor press, horizontal band saw, ext.
My new work bench will be of the same design.

Finally been able to work on it a little more. Almost done. I'm looking at a floor model on Clist for my next project but guess I'd better finish this one first.

Hi Steve,

The little bench drill in the Bridgeport photo is from China. I bought it with allowance money from the Cummins tool truck when I was 7 or 8. Now it's relegated to coring holes in tile and glass. I was going to junk it until I did my shower. Now it lives with the tile saw.

Thanks for your response. You certainly have my interest peaked now. I am just trying to understand how my drill press product information plate says that it is made in Taiwan and you stand by your belief that yours is made in China. I'm sure you are aware the mainland China is not the same as the island of Taiwan. In my opinion, Taiwan generally makes better quality tools than China does.

I would appreciate it if you can help me understand the differences between your drill press and mine. (see attachments below)

From the photo you have (and I modified it), I took a similar profile pic of mine and they appear to be very similar (also see my posts #14 and #15 in case you missed it). The only real difference I see in the two drill presses is the color. Mine had the option of being either a bench model or a floor model, the choice being that of the owner. It would certainly not be the first time Chinese have duplicated other products, but I'm wondering why would they duplicate a Taiwan product?

My "IMS" drill press is the same as Grizzly's Taiwan import both in color and physically, and has been for years. In fact, I have ordered parts from Grizzly using their own parts list. My DP info plate says it was made in 1993, but Grizzly offered it for sale up until a year ago or so.

Like I said, I am just trying to get to the bottom of this puzzle. The two drill presses are so similar I can't believe that yours in made outside of Taiwan. Any other information or photos you might have is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Steve

Hard to say who copied what or if it's copied at all. The Chinese have no problem putting whatever an importer wants on a product, including "Made in USA".

I think it's safe to say that no one would put a plate on it that says "made in China" if it wasn't made in China, he-he.

But it does appear there are some differences though. Yours is a 1/2" chuck while mine is 5/8" chuck. Yours is a 5-speed and mine is 16-speed. Motor horsepower is different as well.

It still has me scratching head though.

Thanks again,
Steve

Here is my made in Asia drill press, the table is a bit un-stable but it works. I use it to drill and buff.

Nothing special here. Dayton by Grainger, a 20 inch with a huge 4 inch diameter column. It has a one horse motor on it. Apparently fell on its face and smashed the switch and cracked the head, top to bottom. A co-worker bought it at a Grainger open house and sale (in its damaged condition) and realized it was something he had no use for. I bought it from him, we loaded it from his pickup (which it never left after the sale) to my trailer. The head is straight, the cracked section is a thin false front for mounting the switch, it doesn't affect the function of the drill press at all. I did price a new bare head and it was $250 so for what I got it for, I could have afforded to put a new head on if needed, which it turns out, it didn't need.

I removed the foreign made 5/8 chuck and put a Ebay special on, a 3/4 Jacobs Super Chuck. It ran crooked and I couldn't separate the arbor from it, but the machine shop at work did their trick and got it apart and re-seated it and it runs true, or did. I think I sprung a jaw by running a too small of a drill bit in it. Someone here said that could happen. It pops when you release it with the key, and doesn't run true on smaller bits. so I bought another Ebay chuck, nearly new and doesn't look like its ever been used, for $83 total.

I need to get a 3/8 or 1/2 chuck with a straight arbor to use for small bits, by just chucking it into the larger chuck.

The switch I replaced with a Square D drum switch and ran flex conduit and wired it to reverse the motor (motor had diagrams for doing just that)

This is a tank of a drill press, and has been very handy.

hofferwood: I like how you set up your intermediate pullies. I'm going to have to look at mine and see if that is an option. It runs way to fast for large bits.

Picked this up on my local CL about a year or so ago. Scored it for $80. It is brand new condition! The original owner I bought it from said he only used it a few times. I am super happy with it. I like that fact that the top cover is made out of metal (not plastic like the current model). Next I'm going to add a key-less chuck & a larger square t-slot table.

http://www.garagejournal.com/forum/s...ad.php?t=50104





Added a Re-purposed wire rack to hold bits & a 6x12 mag-chuck a friend gave me.

I have a couple, both from the 40's or 50's, first up the bench top.

13inch Beaver: $60 not the greatest of pictures.



Next up the 15 inch Canadian Buffalo floor model: $30 even came with a mortising attachment.




These two both get used regularly. The bench top was moved to the wood shop, and the floor model has a permanent home in the garage.

I love this thing.
I fabricated a beefy and ditched the stand it came with.
Now I have my eye open for an older Buffalo to restore.






What brand/color paint did you use there?

Clausing 15-inch step pulley I found on CL about 100 miles away. I believe it is a 1966 model from the serial number and it works perfectly. All I had to do was get the beast home and clean it up a bit.

Here is my Powermatic going through a quick rehab. Just waiting to reassemble motor and finis putting back together this weekend. The serial inicates it was made in 1966.

I have not used, only have had for a few months, inherited from my Dad.

It had a three phase motor, bought a used single phase one that needed bearings.

Just picked up right size bearings today. First set was had exact numbers, but ID was larger. In all the years buying bearings by using number on old bearing, never had a diffrent size.

It's varible speed, something I have wanted for a long time.

Took apart just about everything , sandblasted, painted with Rust Oleum epoxie paint, cleaned and lubed.

Will post more when done.

Here is my completed Powermatic. Installed a used 1 HP with new bearings. Drills a 1/2" hole through 1/4" steel like nothing. Finally, I have a DP that will really do some holes with out slipping or stalling. The varible speed is tops.

I have a couple but this one is the newest. Its a late 30s to early 40s if I remember correctly made by Walker Turner. I got it from my MIL. My FIL had it for years but hte deck lift was broke. I was able to fix it by making a saddle for the outside of the clamp and bolting it on. Now I can tighten it down so it can go up or down. I just got it refurbished around thanksgiving. I have the belts on it now that were not on it from the photo. I also run a new elecdtrical line to the post its by. It runs like a top. I also have a smaller import for the bench and one of the setups you put a hand drill on that I started with.

Here for your viewing pleasure is a Buffalo No. 14. In talking with the mfg this machine was a one year offering in 1921 or 1922. It was called a sensitive drill press. They made one similar that was a floor standing model. I got this one at a swap meet and the guy said it had gone through a flood. So I disassebbled what was there and replaced the bearings. It was a bit out of tram so I machined the base and the column to get things squared up. I remachined the spindle to a jt33 and fitted a Rohem chuck. It is now a good hi speed drill press. The vise I picked up at auction. It fits the T-slot on the base or easily moves out of the way. The table it sits on is a scrapyard find that has adjustable lets and a ground top (flat). I still have to fit a return spring to the quill and make a pinion gear for the motor/belt adjusting rack.

This is my drill press. I wanted a quality American made machine that I didn't have to constantly fool with belts to change the spindle RPM, and I didn't want to pay a zillion dollars for it either. I picked up this 15" Delta in like new condition for $150. It was cheap because it is 208-230V 3 phase. I removed the motor starter and replaced it with an AC Tech variable frequency drive with a phase converter. It does 3 things, it converts single phase power to 3 phase power (allowing me to keep the existing motor), it has adjustable output frequency from 1 to 240 (variable speed), and if needed can convert the input voltage as well. I could have went with a 120V input model, but elected to go with the 220V input instead. This unit has a ton of set up features. One in particular I like is speed scaling. I planned to leave the pulleys set for the lowest spindle RPM which was 425 RPM at the motors rated frequency of 60. With this information plugged into the AC Tech, it can calculate the spindle RPM thru the frequency range and display the exact RPM on the front of the remote control. When all is said and done, I have it set up so I can run the spindle from 150 - 1700 RPM without moving a belt. I set the minimum spindle speed at 150 because I was concerned the motor might overheat running any slower since the cooling fan obviously slows down with the motor. Ive done some long heavy drilling at 150 rpm without issue. I would never try it, but if I was so inclined, I could adjust the belts and achieve a maximum spindle speed of 22,000 rpm. In the end I have a total of around $350 tied up in the machine. Thats about what a new Asian made machince would cost. Not bad.

I have a question for all of you folks that have the "Harbor Freight" type imported drill press. I have one and the switches on the side for the power and light are broken. Can anyone tell me where to buy replacement switches or even the panel with both switches as a unit ? I would like to keep the thing as original as I can instead of mounting a couple of rocker switches in a piece of aluminum.

Here's mine. I bought it from a guy on this board last year. It's a "Power-Kraft" by Montgomery-Ward. Pretty cool because it's a radial arm drill press. For me (weekend warrior amateur), it's worked out great.

I think it's from the 50's, but not sure. It's got a nice Jacobsen chuck - overall it's in very good shape. I would REALLY like to restore it like some of you other guys have - those restorations look so nice.

Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics:

I really lucked out as it was in excellent shape 'cept UGLY. real ugly..........

30.00 + a belt and primer /paint. 3 days on/off of re-beautification.
Came with low-speed center pulley but haven't felt the need yet.

Here is mine, a 1955 Walker-Turner 20" with power down feed 1-1/2 H.P. Reliance 3 phase powered.
This machine has been on GJ before, http://www.garagejournal.com/forum/s...ad.php?t=53716
but now it is sporting its new Allen-Bradley VF drive.
Originally rebuilt in 1989 added VF drive in fall 2010.


Custom aluminum box, housing the VFD and
12 volt transformer for the track light.


Cooling fins on the Allen-Bradley VFD.
I get a range of RPMs from 150 to 1300 without changing pulleys.
The motor is an 8 pole (855 RPM) so it has lots of torque even at 150 RPM
for driving big holesaws and such.


Toggle switch to the right, of the digital readout, turns the drive on and off.
Dial at the bottom varies the motor speed.
Its been one sweet rig to use for the past 20+ years, now its even
better with the variable speed setup.
The table raising/lowering mechanism is one of the best I have seen.
It rides on ball bearings, and rotates so easily you can use, just one finger
to move it. No sticking or binding, when raising or lowering the table, with this unit, had my Clausing lathe bed on it
and could still raise the table with no problem at all.

Thanks Mike,
I kinda over-prettied his two vises as well and it was a mistake. I don't want him tip toeing around this equipment, I want it used!
I'm doing an older Wilton 1750 now and will purposely leave it a little fuggly.

Here's my import 24" geared head drill press. It a 3ph 220v with speeds from 55-1660. The column is 6" in diameter and is very rigid. It has a drilling mode as well as a tapping mode with a instant reverse foot pedal and variable down feed control speeds. The taper is 4mt and has no problem handling and 2 1/4" twist drill. I put a nice 3/4" jacobs chuck on it after I picked it up last year from a closing machine shop on craigslist for a song. The t slot table has a channel built in for a flood coolant system which I have yet to setup...I wish it was a cool usa model but those are hard to come by down here.

Use these in my machine shop. Have six of them.
This one is used to drill a (22) hole bolt circle.
It's old, but for some jobs you can beat em.
They're good for long runs.
That's a lot of drills to sharpen.

ok, I got it apart, it just needed some percussive persuasion with the inertial adjustment device

But now I've run out of paint

This is not mine (yet) but I found it at an upcoming auction. I have never seen a camel back like this with an integral upper guard and a back gear in the drive. What do you think it is worth?

On edit, well this press now belongs to someone else. I knew I was in trouble when the bridgeport with no screws went for $325. The drill press went for $250. I just couldn't justify the price for my needs. It was a very cool machine.

no neat sig line

Hard to see all the details at this angle, but here's my latest drill press:



$150, needed relatively minor work, gave it a full clean-and-paint. It's not 100% done just yet, though very close. The VFD and wiring is somewhat temporary, since we still need to wire 220V over to that side of the shop.

Arboga 825, eight speeds (technically infinite speeds with the VFD, including reverse in case I want to use left-hand drills) gear drive, MT3, 1.1HP, almost seven inches of quill travel, and a rare mill-style X-Y table for precision locating.

She's a monster. In low gear I doubt you could stop it with a crowbar.

Doc.

My very first drill press, just picked it up this week. Ryobi 10". Nothing too fancy, but for what I need it for, it will be more than enough.

Mine's not nearly as cool or impressive as a lot of the ones posted but it's perfect for what I need it for. Couldn't pass up the deal. It was on sale at HD (20% off) and the only one i could see there was the floor model. Asked the tool section manager if he'd give me a few $ off if I took that one (it was just assembled the week before and wasn't hurt at all)and he said he'd knock another $50 off. As I was looking it over and testing it to make sure it was assembled correctly and that it was as it should be, one of the younger guys that worked there found one sitting high on the shelf in the box. The manager, I guess feeling a little embarassed that he didn't check the computer before making the offer, let me take the NIB one and still took $50 off the sale price. Not a give away price but I think I did OK. It's a nice unit, decent power and has zero wobble (read a few reviews that indicated huge vibrations and wobbles). Now to find a nice drill press vise for it!

Doc,

Was this the one that had the table broken off? I seem to recall you found an Arboga that fell over and broke a couple things a while back.

Nice looking machine!

Here it is cleaned up... and here it was before... I dissasembled it, cleaned up all the rust and grease and also rewired it as there were many frays in the existing cord. Now I need to dissasemble it again and paint it.

Anyone have a link to the hammertone paint that matches it? Also, what is the best way to clean up the table? Oh, and after the disasembly, I still don't have a manufacturer. Help!

Same model as Bad Karma's on page 5, an Atlas 1010



Back in the late 60's I was with my dad at the paint store getting some solvent, and while they were filling our container a couple of guys were unbolting this from a workbench. They were replacing it with a floor model so my dad struck a deal with the owner, I think it was around $50, and we brought it home.

It served him well for twenty years until he passed on, I've had it since then and I'm sure it will outlast me as well.

I thought due to paint selection, I was done with the drill press.

Unfortunately, Chrisann came home with a rattle can from Wally World.

Anyone know how to duplicate the ruler on the face of the drill press?

Now to disasemble and prep for paint

Don't know how "original" you want the ruler to be, but I would just make decal to stick on there.

That reminds me, my own drill press has been calling me for a while begging me to make it one too...

My 1937 Boice Crane. This is how it looked when I bought it a couple of weeks ago, currently it's torn down and being cleaned and prepped for paint.

I just bought the exact same one about a month ago. You are correct though, so far I think it is a great drill press for the money. I have used it quite alot over the past month and overall I am very happy with it. I just sold a Wilton 15" that had a 3/4 hp motor and it was a great drill press other than a few issues where I needed a little more umph due to the thickness/size of material and I needed a little more throat for larger parts.

I too went with a new chuck right off the bat. I ordered a 5/8" ball bearing Jacobs chuck to install in place of the cheap import chuck. Another thing that I did was fabricated and installed a 6" spacer to get the drill chuck up to a more reasonable height for working.

Nothing as fancy as some shown here, but it works, cost me $75, and will eventually get cleaned up and painted.

Here's a pic of one of my drill presses, a Buffalo 14 I found in March of 2011. This is as found, has since had a full resto, bearings, paint, 3 ph motor and VFD. One of my favorites, the counter balanced sliding head is just one of its cool features. Extremely heavy, it's a man killer to move around. Have to try to get a more up to date pic.

I have had this press for 20 years. It does all I need and has served me well. Best thing I have done is buy that goofy little clamp to hold items when working. It is simple and gets the job done.

thanks bud. it is a 32" radial drill press. I am using it for woodworking sense it does not have the slow speed for metal work. but I am on the look out for a floor model of the vintage kind for my metal working. I just like the older machines.

Circle 1953 Atlas "Slow Speed" drill press with a morse taper spindle. I did a full restoration on it including straightening a bent spindle, new bearings, wiring, stripping down to bare metal and custom color match. Even created a reproduction decal. I've since also found a new switch plate for it. Pictures are right after the restoration. It's a little dirtier now.

Very Nice. I have the same one, but with only the production table. Nice that you have both tables. Hopefully you also got the table crank mechanism. That production table is one heavy sucker.

That's a cute little press . First drill press? Way to start big. My motto with tools. "Cry once"

One can never have too many drill presses.

I have a basic Mastercraft floor model from Canadian Tire. It gets a fair bit of hobbiest use and it works well for that purpose. I traded a similar bench model for it with may Dad. He wanted the smaller one and I was fine with the floor model. I've added a few accessories to it all of which pop off for storage. It sits on a Craftsman roller stand which, although not ideal, allows me to move it away from the wall. I plan to make a more sturdy roller stand for it.

I also have a smaller Mastercraft bench model. I'll often use both at the same time. If I have a jig set up in the floor model it's nice to have the smaller one to make a few quick holes.

Picked this up off CL last week. Nice old Boice Crane. All original in good working order. I'm guessing late 40's early 50's vintage. Not 100% sure, haven't had time to see if there's a model or serial number on it.

Hmmm, coulda sworn I put this up in here but after going through the pages I can't find it. This is my 24" Prentice Bros drill press I restored last year. I use it often, and it works great. It has a #4mt, 10 inches of quill travel, 3hp 3ph. It has a feed belt on it now, was missing in these pics. Somebody was pretty rough on the table before me, but now I use the giant shaper vise on the machine so it mostly covers up the damage. It has 2 different patents stamped into the machine May 12, 1874 and Dec. 31 1889.

Heres a short vid I did showing it working https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQxWaT5XUBU

I think your Boice Crane is a 2600 Helmet Head. There is a little bit of information about them over on Vintage Machinery.

My Walker-Turner. I believe from the 50s, but I don't remember. I bought this from the company I work for about 10 years ago. Variable speed with rack and pinion for table height. It could use a good restoration.

I just picked up this craftsman 103.24820 drill press last night. I'm going to put another 50 years on this tool. I am replacing my current duracraft drill press with this one I can't think of a good reason to keep both, but I would if I had the space.

The head on mine looks so basic now that I have seen your Prentiss. I guess I'll look for a Prentiss and set this one aside....

Here is my 1952 Delta DP-220 floor model. It came with the Atlas W-68 X-Y table, both tables, and the extra spindles. I have also found the other missing spindle, 1/2 male threaded. The mortise attachment came with a different Craftsman King-Seeley drill press I used to have.

I am going to make a table raising mechanism for it this winter, and just maybe a power feed attachment for drilling larger holes.

Wilton Strands 25" (model 24514). Geared head, power feed, fwd/reverse. Head and table both move up/down, 3HP motor. Weighs in at 800 lbs.

No arc of shame!

First picture makes it look a bit small, so second picture shows it in relation to my engine crane.

Not to me. I used to have a 330a/bp, so I kinda figured the size based on your machine in the background. That is one heck of a drill press. Does it have tapping and power feed options?

Power feed, yes, but no tapping option. I do my tapping in the Bridgeport anyway.

Black/red buttons just above the e-stop button are for the power feed. It's an electronically activated clutch.

I don't make enough of any one part to say it's what I typically make. I just make whatever needs made to either make something or fix something. Last thing I made was an adapter to fit a Procon pump on my TIG cooler. It had an Oberdorfer, but it was cheaper to buy a Procon than to fix the 'dorfer.

Don't have a tapping head, so I mostly power tap on through holes. Blind holes I'll at least finish by hand.

I have a Rockwell/Delta No model numbers handy but I traced mine back to 1970. Its identical to what the jr High and High schools I attended in the late 70s/early 80's had, floor model, 5/8" chuck capacity. Bought used, love it but I need 1. a good drill press vice (good= NOT Chinese for starters) and 2. to retrofit a crank up/down mechanism for the table and it will be perfect. but for what it is/what I paid for it I love it!

also need to get (finally) my Modine heater connected this Fall so I can keep just enough heat going when I'm not out there, to stave off winter condensation. then when I am out there, so I can work in T shirt sleeves

Another neat thread! here are my two Drill presses. The Craftsman is old but I don't know how old. It is a great drill but goes to fast for some of my bigger projects so I bought this Jet model JDP-20MF. It gets the job done.

That is a cool old craftsman drill press. I think it is from the 60's. That Jet looks nice

Here is a catalog excerpt for it. 1968

my jet is in the back ground here, bought it used for 300, so far so good but im missing the handle for the table lift. i think i may weld a spare socket to it though and use a ratchet to lower it. i plan to strip the paint soon

I've been looking for a heavier drill press for a few years. During the last fifteen years or so, I've been using a 1959 Delta 32" radial drill press exclusively, and it has served me well. Still, there have been a few times where a heavy duty drill press would have made things a lot easier. When I started my search, I had some criteria: It had to be a 17" pre-1965 Delta, with original paint and finishes, an original motor, a production table, and original hardware (nuts, bolts, screws, washers, etc.). Not necessarily an easy machine to find in that condition. Well after a few years of searching I received an email from a guy in Oregon who said he had what I was looking for. As the story goes, he bought the drill press from a knife maker in Washington State, who bought it from its original owner, the Bonneville Power Administration. He sent me a few pictures and we struck a deal. I arranged for transportation and the drill press arrived in my driveway last Thursday afternoon. (BIG THANKS to M.T. for hauling it from Oregon to California and then to the Midwest in an open trailer! He didn't hit one drop of rain either!)

Here's my 17" 1951 Delta slow speed drill press (I also bought a set of high speed pulleys), with original finishes, a pretty nice production table (with just a few small divots), an original 3/4 hp motor, and 99% of its original hardware (missing one acorn nut and two washers....which I had in my spare parts stash), and still bearing a brass inventory tag from the Bonneville Power Administration. Prior owners really took very good care of this machine. The motor needs bearings, and that's about it.
