I found this on OfferUp and could not pass up the great deal
I was bought in the 80s and used in a ski shop to drill the holes for the bindings
The drill bit is still in the machine
It was made by Orbit
A little research says it was a pre Jet Tools
It is spotless
But is is one heavy little bugger

Nice find. For $60 you can’t go wrong.

Scott, you are officially the CL/Offerup king! If you spot another press like that call me I need one as mine is slowly dying.

I’d love to have it. I already have two drill presses. My small drill press is about the same size but a little less weight. That one seems to heavier and with better castings.

Looks exactly like mine that I bought new in the 80’s under the Intergaram label. I’m still using it. Good find.
