It’s clunky, the flywheel wobbles back and forth, the gears are noisy,and that bevel gear is out of round on the shaft ,it turns pretty slow and I still have to fix the tight spot and do something about putting springs under the motor or making an adjustment bracket for it to keep tension on the belt and then clean it up….

But I love it already.

  1. Take a pic once it is mounted and being used! Nice paint job thou…. It looks like it could a job most of the spindly cheap crap drill presses can’t do now. That old Dewalt drill press did have a burned out capacitor and the replacement arrived yesterday and will be putting it in and hopefully firing it up.
