Its funny when I was a kid I always wanted one of these drill presses. They were always advertised in the Popular Mechanics mags years ago. I couldn't afford one so I built one out of pipe fittings and used babbitt for bearings. Used it for years and gave it away when I bought my first Walker Turner press. I was looking at Craigs List this morning and there it was, free just come and get it. So I gave the guy a call and after I told where I lived he said " I will be there in 10 minutes I have it in my truck. Now what the hell do I do with it.
