    Nothing too special, I would have preferred a vintage press but with time pressing down on me I bought new, got a 15" Porter cable floor model. Just got it put together and went to mount up my cross vise and found out it's not even close on the bolt patterns so now I've got to screw with that. Nothing is ever easy!

    Did the old one burn up because you were using it too dry and/or too fast?

    The motor is pre-1940's with no capacitors. The drill press is 1920's with single speed full throttle only capability. I think drilling through all of those hardened tangs took it's toll on the old girl.

    I just found this and ordered it. I think it'll be exactly what I need.
