This showed up on Craigslist this morning. It's a Canedy-Otto Number 24 bench drill press. The price was right, so it followed me home. I am guessing that it's about 90 years old and in amazing shape. The owner said that his grandfather owned and cobbled up a motor for it. The motor isn't that old. I sure wish that it had the original one.

Vintage Machinery didn't have much info on it. Does anyone here know anything about this model drill press? I am going to clean this one up and put it in a place of honor.

Nice, Canedy-Otto made good stuff.

I find this in my 1924 Mc & Mc catalogue here if it's of any use to you. They were purveyors of general hardware and logging supplies here on the coast and are not significant to your machine other than contextual reference for the specifications and/or cost. Don't be alarmed at the price -- it's in Canadian dollars.... ;)

Thanks guys. It's going to look a lot nicer in a couple of weeks. The design just appeals to me. I have never seen a small drill press with a miter (crown) gear drive before.
