Drill Press Refurbished
I fixed up the old Rockwell-Delta drill press. It is about a 1940’s model with the dp-220 casting. All parts were dumped into the electrolysis tank. After that, it really only needed a new belt, paint, grease and cleaning. The only extra parts I needed was to by an original motor pulley and a new Jacobs 6A chuck. All the rust was removed from the smaller parts using a wire brush. The paint was my favorite – Rustoleum hammerite. It fills in all of the groves and requires no primer.
