Drill Press is also known as book 5 from the best selling 7 book series, 'Build Your Own Metal Working Shop From Scrap'.

If you have done the projects progressively as the author did you will have done all your drilling with an electric hand drill up to this point. That’s tough and tedious work to say the least and you will really appreciate a drill press. In fact it would not make much sense to proceed to the deluxe accessories without one. You could buy one of course, But anyone could do that....


It drills to the center of a 12" circle with a quill travel of 2 1/2". Two stage speed reduction gives a low speed of 260 rpm for serious large hole drilling. Ball bearings in spindle driven pulley and idler make it smooth and quiet running. Quill feed is by cable or chain drive so there is no rack and pinion to cut.
