I have finally completed my rebuilding of my fleet of !7" delta drill presses. I took this moment to line them all up for a mug shot.

The gang press is my daily user. Normally it has a tapping head on the right most head, but i took it off for the photo so that all of the heads could be at the same height. Of note is that the serial numbers on the trhee heads are consecutive- made in 1954. the table is in the range of 7' long- great for drilling holes in long boards!

One of the three floor presses lives in my metal working shop, The next is in the wood shop to provide tilting table capacity which the gang doesn't satisfy and the last will be headed down the road to a friends shop.
