Original owner. This custom setup was assembled from new parts that were tweaked, modified, and altered to make a portable drill-press which suited my tastes and needs at the time of assembly. It was seldom used and still in excellent condition, both functionally and cosmetically. Sale includes everything shown.

The vintage American-made Skil drill had its bit-holder upgraded to a Spanish-made chuck with a 1/2"inch (13mm) drill-bit capacity. Operation starts with the click of a switch at the end of the power cord, but a foot-switch is recommended for convenience and simplicity sake. A velcro strap around the trigger is used to make adjustments to the speed at the spindle.

The base of the press measures 9" by 6.5" and had brass feet installed at the mounting holes. The convenient metal chip tray for containing swarf and oil measures 7.5" by 12.5". The jig for holding a pipe/rod/tube measures 3" by 5" at the top. The quick-adjusting vise jaws are 4" wide with a 4" clamping capacity.

The press has a 10" maximum height, measured from the bed/platform of the base to the bottom of the chuck. It has two allen/hex keys for quick height adjustment, which are gently held in place with soft putty and can be permanently mounted with superglue or epoxy. The press has a throw of 4.5", measured from the front of the column to the center of the chuck. The total drilling depth is 3".

Also included are two additional shims for the press collar (in case you want to use your own portable hand drill or dremel), the original sidearm (auxiliary handle) from the drill, a pair of replacement brushes for the drill, and two chuck-keys (one new and one used). The weight of everything shown is 16.2 lbs/pounds.

Local pickups only.
Thanks for looking!
