BTW, The automatic advancing mechanism has now been made fully operational again. Where does one get a spring to replace one on an antique drill press? From your nearest ball point pen! Had to shorten it a little to get the right tension, but she automatically advances with a very nice “Click”. This feature would be most useful when drilling metal or close grained hardwoods. Otherwise, it’ll be disengaged and the “two crank, quarter turn” rule with the handwheel will be used.
