This is all first rate work Jerry.
It would stand the test of any museum piece!
This is going to be one fine, in the front machine shop!

I used to own a drill press like that. Stood about 8ft tall. Someone gave it to me because it was too big, old looking, was taking up space and collecting dust in the corner of their shop. My dad and I tore it down, cleaned it up, painted it with some old Haliburton grey chemical resistant epoxy paint (that we got from and old Haliburton supervisor), and put it back together, but never got to operate it for lack of a motor.

Believe me, there wasn't a part on that sucker that wasn't heavy. Just one of the cone pulleys was heavier than the cheap HF drill press I bought a few years ago. Have fun building the model Jerry. At least it shouldn't hurt your back to pick up the pieces.

Well I'm back again. After a short period of things to do in real life. I've finished the Drill Press well almost I still need to give it a couple of the green wash.
And the chain needs to be done yet. Also noticed a shaft missing.

But as always comments welcomed.
