Default I bought a drill press today kind of.

I bought a 16 speed drill press no chuck.
It was $50 yesterday today they said $10.
At $10 it was the one for me.

It is 23 years old. I really bought it to make a plate steel top and put my mag drill on top of it.
I tried to do this with a newer harbor freight drill press but it was to weak to handle it.



It does not look like much but it should clean up and make a good mag drill stand.
It works fine it just needs a new chuck.

Nice price. Those things aren't cheap.

I do not agree! It looks really good, if you know what to look at.

I looked it up and a 16 speed drill press is from $250-$300 I am thinking about getting a chuck for it.
If it does good then I will clean it up.

I can make a mag drill stand from ” plate steel.

Harbor freight had a drill chuck that was the right size and it had decent reviews. So for $12 after 20% off and free LED light my drill press is a drill press again.

I just drilled a tractor pin where my other drill press was having trouble drilling straight holes in 30 mm 1144 Turned ground round. (tractor pins)

This drill press drilled straight hole. I guess I will save it and use it as a drill press. I am at $32 for this little 16 speed drill press.

I used it some more and adjusted the speeds. With some TLC this will be a decent drill press.
I did not use it as I intended but I am happy I got it.
