What was original cost? Looks old which is good & bad. Old stuff is usually solid but needs to be cleaned, replace belt, check bearings etc. Motor may need rebuild/brushes.

Offer 1/2 of asking but be willing to come up to 3/4.

Caveat emptor!

That drill press has a good throat depth and a solid stand and table. For me the only other thing to check (aside from bearings, motor etc) is the quill travel. For me, 2” of quill travel makes that a $50 drill press. 4” would get you my $100 though. I would also check to make sure that the table moves up and down as it should. Sometimes the pinion in the table or the rack will have busted or bent teeth which can be a huge PITA.

I have an even older one… It’s still kicking from the early 70’s and is a beast. Also accurate. If it’s running well and looks in decent condition…...
The rust, especially on a drill press isn’t important and can be cleaned up sufficiently.

I have a 113.213850 and can think of nothing bad to say about it.

If I ever need to drill a perfectly straight hole deeper than it can go, I’ll finish it with a handheld drill. There’ll be enough hole to force it straight.

Have your say...
