Nice old drill press, Rockwell

There is a very fine line between a hobby and a mental illness.

Does the need justify the want ? Or does the want suffice?

Probably worth the asking price but I hate those guys that blow about how they will do this that and the other then they will demand the moon and the stars. Usually as soon as I get a whiff of that BS I cut bait and I am no longer interested.  Bslap

Those are good machines. We had ones badged Rockwell or Walker-Turner or Rockwell/Walker-Turner. With 3 phase and a drum switch they are great for tapping with instant reverse. Ours saw lots of holes over the years. That one seems to have a wimpy table compared to ours.

Too bad that doesn't have the production table.

I've been watching this one, but lacking space. I also am not right in the head...
