Re: Old Rockwell Delta drill press

I have that same drill press. It's worth what ever a new drill press of that size is worth and probably more as long as the spindle is not bent. Not much else to go wrong that can't be easily fixed...

Re: How do you store your taps/dies etc?

I had these aluminum blocks left over from another project so I drilled them each to fit 3 taps and the proper tap drill for 75% thread. No more searching for the right tool, life's too short.

Re: A cool tool with some history.

[QUOTE=TimDaToolMan;3442802]I picked up a small box full of old tools. There are some other keepers in there, such as a Keen Kutter pre 1940 wrench, but this was the true keeper.

Re: Why metal cutting blades are for cutting metal

Take that same blade and turn it around backwards and try it again. It actually works pretty well. I used that trick to re-roof a shed with galvanized corrugated metal.

Re: Newbie with a mill

Nice work on the stop. If you are doing multiple parts, your work will be more accurate if you clamp the stop to the back (stationary) jaw. The front jaw has a bit of clearance which causes it to not...
