This drill was offered to me but I let a friend purchase it. I was at a fellow woodworker's summer place and has seen very little use. The table is perfect with a nice patina from years of being in a unheated building, but there are no dings or holes. The paint is original and in good condition. We had to disassemble it to move it and brought it to my shop to go over it and clean it up. I replace the motor bearings and the cord and cleaned out the dried up grease from both roller thrust bearings on the columns and the raising gear mechanism. I checked the spindle bearings and the seem to be OK for now. the are the ones with the extended race with the notches. I have made replacements in the past and can do it if necessary. I have only ever seen one other of these advertised for sale in the past, so they must be quite rare. I debated for a long time about mounting it on the double table with one of the 17" DPs but decided against that. These came in "Standard" and "Deluxe" models. This was the standard verson. It has a ½ hp motor. One interesting that that we noticed in working on it was that instead of a ball thrust bearing in the raising mechanism, they had use a piece of steel and two fiber washers to replace the bearing. I had a extra bearing so we used that when we put it back together.
