Picked this up yesterday, just had to buy it when I saw the handle
Cool! It's even double reduction for those big holes.( that's what she said!) Nice!
That thing is badass!
That's about the coolest feed handle I've ever seen on a drill press. Fully understand the "gotta buy it" deal.
That is one badass drill press. I would've bought it too.
Kool! Now build a belt guard in aluminum to match the Art Deco shape of the quill's casting.

I'm trying to resist the urge to polish the snot out of it & add some pinstripes..
Equally amazing, the chuck key is still attached
Just goes to show they don't make stuff like they used to. That thing is cool!
That thing looks HEAVY--wish I had one just like it!
Stop resisting and post pictures of the result.
I agree with him!
Very cool! I've never seen one like that before.
It looks like it's running as slow as it will go. It really needs a step pulley on the motor to speed it up for the small drills.
It's got a tiny chuck on it right now, but came with some others, 1 of which is a 3/4in Jacobs.
If I go the polish/pinstripe route on the handle then I kinda have to resto the entire thing.. & I don't want to lose the decals on the top...
& now I have this thing, I don't really need my old Craftsman 150, so does anyone in the LA County area maybe want to part with $150 for this one?
I also picked up some other stuff at the sale, including 2 vises... so now I have a total of 21 vises....
This is the Morgan 40 pictured yesterday when i got home with it..
Right now it looks like this:
"Man cannot have too many vices" (Al Capone)
Uh....that looks like junk.
Can I have it? Nice!
Bitchin score...never seen a Tiger drill press before, but looks great...now I hate my HF POS even more
I have a old Craftsman that looks exactly like your "new" tabletop, except for the guard casting on top looks like the Alien's head, and has the engine-turned trim like your (newer) floor Craftsman. Very solid and accurate, and looks kewl
Very nice !
You just can't beat the old heavy tools that are USA made ans still running like they were new ! Just shows the craftsmanship the USA use to make .
Actually there is one issue with it & thats hardly worth mentioning. The motor on the back is supposed to be held in place by 4 bolts, the lower 2 are missing so the motor moves around a bit when it's running causing a vibration. Easy enough to sort out so no biggie
I would have bought it too.
