Default They say old arn is a slippery slope

So, while perusing Craigslist, I found this Delta 1945 DP220 drill press. I had to have it after restoring a Delta metal/wood band saw.
Our Grand daughter was riding her horse in barrel racing competition, so I dropped my Wife off 1/2 the way there and continued west another hour or so.
I picked up this, not-so-beautiful tool and spent the next couple weeks fixing it up.

My new baby.









Oh. Here's the 1966 bandsaw.

Mike,

You've found your calling, saving history from the landfill.

Great work, and some great looking tools!

Hi Mike! Those are real beauties. I get excited about those kind of deals . My basement has way to many, or the shop is to small? I started getting a few tools, used about thirty five years ago, and I use almost all of them. Atlas lathe, band saw, scroll saw, and such. I haven't painted any. I was way too busy when I was younger, and now, I have trouble up and down stairs to the shop. Keep them coming, Thanks for the show

Nice drill press, Mike. I have two similar, one I use all the time and another that needs some attention. Just haven't had the time. I love those old ones.

A person can never have too many tools!

The paint is Rustoleum deep blue enamel. I thought it might be a bit darker, but I like it as is.

LOL. I misspelled say as saw. It's corrected now.
Slippery slope is a term used on owwm.org which means once you start collecting these old pieces of iron, it gets to be an obsession sometimes. A slope that gets slippery, and you just slide right into it. I started with the DeWalt RAS, then the Delta 11" lathe, the Rockwell/Delta band saw was next, and now the Delta drill press.
I might try finding another jointer so I can get the Asian Grizzly 8" out of here.
I'm sliding down the slope!!

Well, Mike,

I would definitely say you are on that slope.

Does it lead to a bottomless money pit.......

A while ago a friend gave me this scroll saw. It works great. It's a Delta 40-440 circa 1950's
