New-to-me drill press

In refurbishing, tools on November 6, 2014 at 2:41 am

My uncle gave me a drill press.  It was in poor shape after not being used for a long time.  The wiring was disintegrating, it was filled with rat poop, covered in rust, and the plug had been cut off at some point.  He thought the motor was still good though.  I got it cleaned up and rewired.  I replaced the plug wire as well.  It still needs a new belt as the old one is a bit frayed but it does work!  It has already been getting some use.  🙂
