I got this press from a doctor who had gotten it from his brother in law. It was originally in service for Kentucky Utilities in Lexington, KY for many years. Like with most drill presses of this vintage, OSHA became very oppressive about the regulations of these belt driven machines, so KU retired her. everything is in good working order, just a little rust, but it has all the back gearing and the power feed intact, the table has a few holes but not too many when you consider the work this press must have seen over the years.
I also have the motor mount, I just didn't take any pictures of it. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
