While working outside in the shade of my driveway, cutting gussets for the
rafters for my 12X20 shed, my neighbor pulls up beside me in a borrowed
truck and asks me to help him unload something. Turns out this something is
a Rockwell/Delta 17" drill press. The shop he works in had upgraded some of
their tools and this was replaced. He did not have a place for it and
thought I would like it. They had loaded it into the truck with a crane and
we pulled it out of the truck and walked it into my garage. Needless to say,
it was rather heavy. The model # is 17-600 with a 1 HP 120V/220V motor, now
wired for 120V. If anyone has any information they would like to share on
this model drill press would be appreciated. Looks like all it needs is
cosmetics which I hope to begin on soon.
Good shooting! Is matter surrouding your house starting to be drawn in from all
that suckage? :)
Now that's heavy iron. I have a vintage DP master gloat/resto story that'll be
posted soon, but that's for another post...
Call up Delta and give them the serial number. They can tell you the date and
send a manual. Make sure the bearings are good and all the proper bits are
You forgot to ask him when he was going to paint
it a decent ABG color, Keefy.
ABG = anything but GRAY!

Didn't you hear? Those things weren't made very well at all, and it's
liable to fly apart on you. That's why the shop replaced it.
Seeing as how it's such a piece of junk, I'll be happy to take it off your
hands and scrap it properly, so you don't hurt yourself.
BTW, you suck!
