Here is my blacksmith drill press. Still needs cleaning before I plan to hang it on a wall. It is 2 speed with a flat pully to run off the international harvester pump engine. I plan to make an arbor to use a drill chuck on it. I also would like to make a replacement quill feed lever. It is usable still with the hand feed lever on the left side. I'm in the process of getting parts to restore the engine.

I've got a Champion also. They are incredible machines, very powerful and easy to use. Mine has the usual automatic downfeed, and also has two speeds.

That is an interesting drill press. Would like to see more of it. I like the fine down feed it has.

I love that old green light- where did you find that little gem?

I found it on ebay, very rusty. I restored it and a near-100 year old switch to go with it. I wired it all up with new cloth covered wire.

This is all so really cool.
I don't know anything about smithing, but am especially looking forward to anything you post about the engine!

I like the lamp even better than the drill- a jewel in the rough for sure.
Nice restoration job too.
