I purchased this machine from one of Reliable Tools' EBay auctions. When it arrived it was missing a knob for one of the handles as well as the plug on the power cord. According to Reliable, this machine had seen little if any use and appeared to still be preserved in cosmoline! Wasn't I surprised when I replaced the plug and plugged it into a power outlet! The machine wiring had been set up to bypass the on/off switch and went instantly to full speed! Needless to say, I managed to kill the power before it killed me! The machine and I have, since that time, entered a relationship of understanding and mutual respect which, I hope, will last for many years.

As a side note, this machine needed a table so I built the one to which it is attached in the pictures. No easy feat when a machine weighs over 500 pounds! However, with it's new wheels it definitely is a drill for all occasions.
