Duro drill press

Filed under: wood shop — howarth frank @ 12:22 pm

I also acquired this from the Washington state surplus program.  I have no history on it; it came with no manual or paper work. As you can see it is a floor standing model (WWS3080).  The motor is a 1/3 house power three phase.  The motor is also painted a slightly different color as the drill, which make me wonder if it is original.  The tensioning knob does not look original ether.  I don’t have three phase power yet so I have not been able to turn it on, although everything seems to turn and move freely, there is a little bit of play in the spindle.  There is a metal plate on the side of the drill that looks like it used to have a pair of lights in it.
