    Default Interesting Rhoades Drill Press Columbus Ohio

    I have been searching for an early drill press from around the mid 1800’s to incorporate into my lineshaft museum... This drill showed up not long ago on PM and I was happy to finally bring it home. It’s not as old as what I am looking for but I couldn’t pass it up. Thank you to my friend Jake in helping me find some info on this drill... Born in 1902 and although not as old as I would like, the drill press is unique enough to keep in the lineshaft museum. This drill has many cool features like a weight in the column to help with raising and lowering the table, foot pedal to engage and disengage the belt drive, a vise built right on the side of the table and a leather wheel friction drive adjustable for variable speed. The design is both unique and crude at the same time.... Just wanted to share this most insteresting press. Photos coming!

    I’m uploading these images from my phone and it seems to want to rotate the images so you may have to bend your head a little...
