I purchased this machine new in 1974 complete with 1/3 Hp Westinghouse motor and stand. Later on I acquired the Rockwell retractable caster set for $1.90 at a local salvage store and added them on so I can move the machine around my crowded shop. I also have the appropriate extra spindle and mortising attachment so I can use it for more than just drilling holes. It is fitted with an adjustable lamp so I can see what I'm doing and a removable large auxiliary table so work is well supported. The head can rotate horizontally and vertically through a full 360 degrees and lock into position so it's possible to work at any angle or off the stand for large work pieces.
