So much for being financially responsible...



I bring it home tomorrow. Not sure if I'm going to strip and repaint right away or use it for a while first. It's in pretty good shape though. There are only two apprentice marks on the table.

I'll probably call it the 220, at least until something just feels right.

I decided to wait until it cools down a bit more. I have the old propane tank for use as the body on standby. Might go ahead and pull the valve and cut the openings this week depending on the weather.

I'll be in the market for a lathe next. Then a mill and if I can find the right deal a tool and cutter grinder... yeah, being financially responsible isn't going to work out to well... :felix:

You'll go through a natural binge phase then settle down.

Pay someone else to dig your holes - or invest in a shovel?

That's a lovely bit of kit!  Envy!

JJ that's and old, really old. Delta Rockwell drill press.  It is made of sterner stuff.  I like it.  I have a 65 year old Delta Rockwell 14 inch band saw that I value above some of the visually, nearly identical stuff in the big box stores.  My old band saw was not made in China and neither was your nifty drill press.

Call me a xenophobe if you like.  The old time US made stuff was made of durable stuff.

How do you make a dog go meow?

Freeze over night then put him through the band saw meowwwww.

You have to love the classics.

Had an interesting one today. The tractor had been sitting for eight months and wouldn't turn over. Replacing the ignition switch, starter and solenoid were all in the plans. Turns out... the ground side bettery cable had failed. It was acting like a circuit breaker, heating up when the engine was cranked. There were three strands of that big cable still intact and the power side isn't too far behind.

The trusty test light told the tale and the multimeter confirmed. I did spend a few minutes looking for a breaker under the cowl though. It wasn't obvious where the ground side cable was connected so I didn't perform a voltage drop test right off the bat.

A satisfying and cheap solution!
