Here's another example of what you can find when you lurk on CraigsList: A very early '50's Delta/Rockwell 17" DP-600 drill press with a production table made by The Delta Power Tool Division of Rockwell Manufacturing in Milwaukee.
Overall it's a lovely shade of turquoise straight out of the '50's. Doesn't appear to have seen much use as the quill is very quiet and tight, as is the pinion. The motor is a '70's vintage GE continuous duty 120v single phase so I am going to assume that it was originally a 3 phase setup converted for home use. It came out of a basement around Boston. Had to slip the head off to get it up the stairs and out the troll door. (about 4 foot tall door) It's steel and cast iron, I figure about 450 Lbs.
It's got the high speed pulley set on it as it was used for wood, I'll either go to a VFD/3 phase motor to get variable speed and lower RPM or I may fab up a jackshaft and run a 3 step pulley with 10%, 30% and 50% reductions, all depends how ambitious I get.
