I'm not sure about the history of this. I know the cord has been replaced. It needs to be replaced again because I recently used it and received a shock. The belt is worn and I know it's a top notch press; I just don't know how to get the replacement parts or get it fixed. I think what you buy today is inferior to what they made in the past. The problem is getting the part to keep hem running properly. Help!!!

Comments: The cord has tape in one spot. Not sure where the short is but too afraid to use this anymore. Do not want to be eloctrocuted. I really loved having this drill press at my disposal till the shocks started. If anyone can help, I'd greatly appreciate it!
