I happened on to a garage sale and spotted this machine. Fella didn't wanted much for it. I jumped at the chance. When I asked to test it we discovered that the toggle switch had been broken off. I was able to get the original 1/3 hp capacitor start motor to power on by playing around with the switch for a few minutes. The guy I was buying from handed me back some money for my trouble and time involved, and to buy a new toggle switch. This machine will drill to the center of a 32" circle! Delta supplied me with a new bearing. I disassembled, cleaned, painted. It runs like a top once again. Thanks Delta for making such great quality tools. I no longer own this machine.

Comments: Head tilted. Owners manual calls for a table 24" x 17". This allows you to do a horizontal boring.
