Comments:
I bought this drill press in 2014 from a small A/C shop in Decatur, AL. I was told it originally served in a factory nearby and was taken out of service when it no longer met standards (safety standards, I presume).

Comments: There's a mild arc of shame. The chuck key was attached to the support collar by a chain.
