I kept this Drill Press Stand with the idea that it would help me accurately bore 3/4″ holes for bench dogs. Then, when I set out to drill them I realized that the drill only has 2 amps and that my larger drill could not be properly installed in the stand. That meant that I had no use for it.
This Drill Press Stand would probably be ideal for drilling smaller holes or running a wire wheel brush.
The drill is lowered in a controlled manner with the feed lever on the right side and the whole assembly can be raised or lowered along the post, as well as swiveled to sit away from the base to drill long stock.
The same goes for the table, which can also be rotated.
The keyed chuck accepts bits up to 3/8″ diameter and the key has a handy storage spot on the stand.
Okay, here’s the deal.

Chris- what you’re doing is grea! I’ve never seen a stand like this before and would love to get my hands on it!
I’ve always wondered why this type of drill press went out of style.
