  • drill press

    This is one super small drill press. the height can be adjusted, but the throw can't be more than maybe 3/4 inch. it has a foot operated switch. I bought it at a garage sale for $20. It has a 3/8 chuck and a pin installed in the chuck..perhaps to drill a super small hole. I don't really know what's the point or who made it, but it looked like a good buy.

    Cute! cute! cute!! LOL

    Looks like it would work great for inlay, or for fretwork if you don't stack cut too high.

      Looks a lot like a Foredom motor and speed control from what I can see. Does it look as if a flexible shaft can be attached to the top of the motor? I've never seen anything like it by Foredom but I'm betting you got a real good buy in it.

      If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

        The motor is a Dayton, and perhaps you are right about the flexible shaft, because the shaft on top of the motor does spin while the chuck is spinning and depending how hard you step on the foot switch determines the speed, and it really clips along fast, but the vibration is very low.

          Among other things. I was surprised to see 190 proof. Everclear tops out at 150 proof here in NC, but I have seen it at 190 in Georgia.

          What was the old college recipe? Equal parts Hawaiian Punch and Everclear? You pour it into Mayo jars, put the lids on and store in the original boxes....

          And now for the questions

          I saw a "practice pattern" to learn how to operate my saw. I decided to print out what I thought was a fairly simple pattern that would cover all the cuts and possibly have something at the end. Please tell me that the pattern lines are really just suggestions. Improvisation is acceptable....

          Those are great! I would be interested in seeing how you box them.

          BTW, Everclear is banned in some states but still available in others. I also recently saw another brand of 190 proof at the local ABC store here in Gibsonville, NC. (I did a quick Google and found the brand is Diesel)
