Default Scrap Yard Drill Press Very Inusual

Lucky for me Lee had not gotten to this yet or it would have been destroyed like so many other things. last week a perfectly good cabinet blaster, 20 ton H frame press and a 20” industrial disk sander all were lost to Lee and his loader.

With the exception of a number stamped into the cast iron base there is no means to identify the maker of this unique machine.

It seems to have been used for production. It has features like quill stop and quill handle clocking and looks to be precision made.

It also has a feature that has me puzzled. I will take a picture of it later.

Some are called "micro drills".
IIRC P&W made some, check PM antique section.
Some simply made the table rise for feed.

I did some investigating. It is called a “Sensitive Drill Press” made by the Hamilton Tool Co.

These are used for small holes where a light touch is needed.

It has a feature that has me puzzled. There is a rod passing down the inside of the round column. This rod moves up and down with the spindle travel. It protrudes below the base when the spindle is advanced downward.

Maybe some kind of damper or "shock absorber" went under it?

I guess you mean a bump-stop of sorts? Yes, I suppose so but that seems an unusually complicated way of doing that but who knows?

I thought it might be some type of trigger for production application but I see no other structure on the machine that would support this.

I still need to take a picture and free the motor. It is very tight, I’m hoping all it needs is oil and persuasion.
