My father and I purchased this drill press from Leonard Brothers Department Store in down town Ft. Worth, Texas, in the early 50's for a total of $99.00 (no tax then). We have used it continously since then, in his shop and now in mine. It originally had a mortising attachment that has been lost over the years (anybody know where I might obtain one?). All parts are original except the step pulley on top of the main shaft which I have replaced. It is powered by a 1/3 HP Ward's Powr Kraft ball bearing, reversible, 5.7 amp motor, mfg. #A7262 & ser. #B47 (the same one we put on it originally back in the 50's.
