    Anyone know what model drill this is? It seems very well put together. Weighs a ton! Bed is a bit battered but it was cheap enough so can't complain.

    Not sure what it is, but it looks very dangerous.

    Probably best if I take it off your hands so you don't hurt yourself on it, I won't even charge you, I'll do it as a favour...

    Looks like an old Rockwell drill press from the late 1950's / early 60's. Nice Clausing 4900 series lathe also. Do you have the rest of it ?

    It's a mk2 student. It's complete but was a bit of a mess. So I'm tidying it up.

    Picked that up last week. Cost me £350. It's all there just needs a new motor.

    After looking these up it is definitely one of these. Would I be right in thinking it's more of a woodworking drill? It seems just as capable as the meddings I use at work. Really impressed as it only cost me 50 quid.

    I'm not sure tbh - they certainly look solid enough to handle metal work - as long as the quill has no play I wouldnt worry.

    Next to no play what so ever. Just drilled a 13mm hole straight through 10mm plate. Stalled the motor as it was breaking through but that was being a bit rough to be honest. Much better than any new junk.
