Well not that I needed another tool rescue project but at $20 I couldn’t turn down this drill press I found on Craigslist. It’s a Craftsman 15-1/2" model 113.21371 drill press with a 1/2 hp motor. probably dates to the late 70s. The guy I got it from was cleaning out the garage from his recently deceased father and just wanted the stuff gone. Runs and the bearings seem fine; will need a new belt though.
Was actually right down the street from harbour freight, when I picked up the drill press, so I stopped in and got a wire cup brush for my angle grinder. Should hopefully make the rust removal go a bit faster. Got an obligatory free tarp as well
