Default Delta drill press 600

So I've been thinking about getting a full size DP to use instead of my bench top model. I ended up grabbing this for $75.

As you can see in the last pic, the back plate that holds the drill head on the column has been over torqued and cracked. It is also where you put tension on the motor pulley, the one side has been blown out. I have that plate on order, so I should be good to go next week. I can't say that I've ever seen a drill press that had V ways for its table to raise and lower on, you think this is a franken-drill? I am also wondering why the motor is so large when its only a half horse power. Maybe cause its a 110/220?

They built real motors 60 years ago

Yeah, my first thought was: "Wow! It's gonna take some big bolts to hold that sucker on the wall..."

I think they had bigger horses back in the day.


Nice find.

Nice machine. My guess is the the V-ways are original, but I have never seen one like that. Mike

After doing some browsing of the interwebs, it would seem that someone took a head and column from a multiple head drill table, and grafted it onto the V-way table. It must have been done decades ago, as there was enough paint covering the bolt heads that a "paint puck" came out with the allen bolts to separate the top and bottom. I will probably pull it apart and clean/grease everything before it goes back together. I have it apart waiting for a repair part to come in, might as well service it now.

Edit, it also seems there is a "foot peddle feed" available for this drill! I have the mount spots on the drill head, now I just need to find the lever and gear to install!

Looks to be a nice drill press when you get it finished.
