1.5 hp Rockwell Drill Press weighs about 900 pounds, has the strength and stability for safely drilling larger holes in larger workpieces, and the precision to drill clean holes in fast production.  5- speed pulleys provide the right speed for every material. 19x22 table safely supports very large work.

Made during the great years of American manufacturing. This machine was in daily use in a production wooden parts operation, and is in excellent shape for many more years of work. Greasable parts help keep it in good condition.

Price includes T-Nuts for the slotted table, and a foot-operated pneumatic clamp for safely drilling small pieces, larger holes, or large, awkward shapes. C-clamps are still recommended when possible.

Pneumatic Clamp available separately

This machine cannot be shipped - must be picked up on site. It will require disassembly and some serious muscle. Weight is an estimated 900 lbs.

Set of 11 multi-spur Forstner-type drill bits, 3.375" special drill, and two 3.5" custom-made disk cutters.
* Shop-made vacuum clamp and chip extractor
PRICE: $300 or Best Offer. Will sell by the piece.
