Have an option to buy one, with vice and square block for $1100. Less than a 2 hour drive. It's a 24", 2hp, MT3 taper. Italian made. It's a 3000 lb machine. Looks good, but I know nothing about the brand. Any thoughts or comments?

Check and make sure all the feeds and speeds actually work. The controls make it look like there is a fairly complicated gearbox inside. You will not likely find parts or technical support for it. If it works, hell yes!

There's an auction in Milwaukee with a zelueza RADIAL drill about the same size the bids $105.00 but has several days left. It has all the extras also. Btm is the seller or auction outfit.

I just sold a very similar machine for $2500.

A radial arm makes any other drill press seem like a toy.

I have been meaning to put my morse drill bits for it on sale. 1/2" to 1" by 1/64 and then a dozen more up to 2"

Got it. Also picked up a cabinet with 300 drills in it. Mostly 32nd, and 64ths. About half are Morse taper shanks. Lots of sharpening to do. Maybe 10% are junk. Machine works perfect, built in 1964, I think. Included a vice and both manuals.

Paid $1500 for all.

Nice machine, they can do a whole lotta work . And make it easy. I used several different ones over the years , running core drills in castings for valves. It was lots of bull work over precision but it was work. But when that place tried abusing me I ended up leaving. But that's another chapter. I ran a big one like bcbloc YouTube bought and it dropped , from cable failure on his new concrete. He welded the casting and I'm surprised it came back together so well. You did well I think nice drill selection too.

Why do they put the controls on the left side a radial drill? Mine is the same, doesn't feel natural after using regular presses.

from what i understand,
a lot of foreign equipment and on a lot of lathes, the apron controls are reversed too.
i wonder the reasoning myself

Hadn't made the foreign connection, the drill I have is an AB Arboga made in Sweden. But their regular, non radial arm ones have the down feed on the right.

Geez, what a beautiful machine Jason.... I wish I had room for something like that.

Please show us any projects you do with that. $1500 was an awesome deal. Congrats.
