Comments:
This is a Rockwell/AMF benchtop drill press that I acquired from a gentleman who operated it at the bowling alley that he worked at as a younger man. The drill press is equipped with an AMF jig that secures bowling balls in order to drill holes into them (finger holes, plug holes for weights?). The bowling alley was eventually shut down and they gave it to him. He held onto it because his children were bowlers and he used it on occasion.

I don't know much about the Jig - it was manufactured by AMF, and has the following cast into it (the serial number is stamped)

"Pat. Pending
Cat. No: 43-62-03
