    This thread has made me realize that I've put off fixing my Walker Turner table top long enough. Needs a replacement (not new) motor and some bronze bushing for the pulleys.

    I don't have a picture of my press but it looks like this one....

    That’s what would be called a “sensetive drill press” and it can be operated by pressing on the lever or pulling the quill down manually. Manually pulling it down allows you to feel the bit cutting and it’s used to drill small holes where too much pressure can break the bit.
