Finally replaced this press with a newer one, so it's up for sale.
This thing is from the 50's. The spindle is true, and has a Jacobs 633D taper chuck, with a 1/2" capacity. It stands about 6'5", and I'm approximating the weight at ~400 lbs. The base is ~2'x2' 1" plate, unlike the small footprint of the newer ones. Has GE electronics on it, and I believe it's a 3/4 HP motor on it, @1730 RPM. The only thing on it that's ghetto is the return spring. I got it without the return spring assembly, so I just put a regular spring on the handle-side. It works fine, but it'd have a stronger return with a flat rotary spring on it.
Other than that, the mast could be cleaned a bit with Scotch-Brite or something similar, to make table repositioning easier.
This is where a rotary spring assembly would go.
Asking $100. I was able to get it into a truck bed by myself, but if you want it, make sure you can lift and have the proper straps to keep it down. Will deliver in the Phoenix area for $25 + $0.60 per mile, from 85392.
May trade for something useful.
Only call or text if you have any questions.

That would be perfect for my tubing notcher but I don't have room for it. My bench top drill press is not quite tall enough.
I'm sorry, what? I was ignoring you
The slowest it'll run with that motor/pulley system is 4xx RPMs.
It's perfect for step-bits, broaches, and any wood work. If it doesn't sell reasonably, I'll get myself a set of broaches and find a way to cram it next to my other drill press. I don't have the room but that hasn't been an issue in the past!
