My Idea Of A Good Time

Here is a quick, two minute video of an old drill press restoration.

It turned out pretty decent.

That drill press I bought and fixed still has the factory paint on it and it’s not in too bad of shape, Thank God.

That would be a lot of work to tear all the way down and repaint.

  1. “That would be a lot of work to tear all the way down and repaint.” But it would be fun and you would have a drill press that would last your lifetime and your sons if he took care and maintained it. How long would a modern Horrid Fright drill press last and that you took care of and maintained? Plastic chinese pot metal crap.

      Got what I paid for, fer sure!
