Comments:
This drill press is not for sale or trade.

I purch'd this locally on 7.12.19 from a fellow that was cleaning out a relatives home and shop. I have no history on it except that the p.o. had been a printer and I paid $65 for it. The photos are courtesy of the p.o.. The p.o. also supplied a UTube video of a similar press in use, highlight the link and open to view: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=na720gjGd-A Note that the press in use and mine below are both missing the project hold down. There doesn't seem to be a way to secure the dp to a table, bench or even an upright post for use.
