    Ultimately its worth what someone wants to pay to obtain it. Stick it on ebay and find out?

    The table will almost certainly be rack/pinion so will rise and fall at the crank of a handle. The head is also likely to do the same.
    My Arboga has these features and they are wonderful :)

    Surely you would feed with the quill?

    Looking at it there seems to be a lot of similarities to an Arboga, I wouldn't be surprised if it is just a rebadged one.
    Mine is a lot older style but still a beautiful drill.

    That’s the boy.

    How much did that go for?

    I don't think it sold, was listed at least 3 times by a dealer for £1140.

    Yeah very nice.
    Like you say rack n pinion easy peasy.
    Big tools from my experience will happily do small intricate jobs because you can fit small chucks and tools to them.
    The problem arises when you want a small tool to do a big job.

    Here is a pic of an older Startrite, that is definitely an re-badged Arboga or a clone as it is very similar to mine.

    In my opinion Arboga drills are one of the best. I wanted one for years but they sell for a premium but I eventually got one and long story short I ended up getting refunded so it cost me nothing :)

    To be honest they all need TLC but I never have the time anymore.

    It’s amazing the workshop has actually had a bit of a tidy up today!

    Started on the EFI on Saturday.

    So far I’ve stripped the racks and gear handles, wire wheeled the worst rust off the column and 600 wet&dry on the rest, cleaned the gearbox out of grease, freed off the quill handle.

    Needs tonnes of work yet.

    Wiring & DOL starter
    More cleaning on the column
    Foot pedal needs stripping
    Morse Taper needs reaming
    Tables need de-rusting and painting
    Motor needs to be removed and cleaned.
    Quill handle needs chroming and Deleon balls adding.
