I have wanted one of these for a long time, a good quality home built (Canadian) drill press.
I lucked out and found this beauty for $50.00 from a retired machinist who lamented the lack of decent tools available these days. I promised him that I would look after it and provide a good long term home. After 41 years she runs smoothly, with lots of power and will likely outlive me!
It feels good to use a tool that was built within 50 miles from my home, built within the community to a high standard. I love finding British, Canadian and American tools and preserving them.
Boycott China. Boycott garbage that is destroying our environment and piling up in our landfills.
Made in the west matters. Keep your tools sharp and your neighbours working!
