  • Drill press bonus

    The planets seemed to align for me today.I bought this drill press listed in the swap meet today.it came with what seemed to be a extra spindle.
    I was aware these presses had several “ quick change “ spindles available.turns out the extra is a mortise/ router spindle.
    i had a mortise attachment that came with a drill press I used to have,but it would not fit over the chuck,well,it’s ment for this set up.
    all I need now is a set of split bushings,and I have ordered what I think will work from Amazon.
    now,in my reconfigured shop,I have my j/p combo,bandsaw and the drillpress/ mortiser lined up on one wall,and can use any of the three for most uperations without moving any of them.I will need to move the j/ p slightly away from the wall for planing operations

        Great looking drill press Al. I also see in the pic how you tethered the two halves of the multi function machine overhead. Great breakfast let’s do it again soon.
