I've been thinking about doing a full restoration on my dad's Delta 17 inch radial drill press, circa 1964-67ish. It still runs well, although occasionally the chuck falls out. Anyway. Dad is fearful i might ruin it if i use electrolysis to remove the rust. So I'm just maintaining it for now. Thanks for the inspiration, enjoyed the pictures.

I did something similar with an old freezer. Nothing special but it's a solid surface holder
I've got a similar one in my garage and I'm dying to take it apart and restore it. I can't find the correct manual for it anywhere, though (I've checked all the vintage manuals sites). I might have to get the 1974 manual and hope not much actually changed, other than the gear housing and head.
Drill press for ~$20
I appreciate the info about inductance - I was trained a lifetime ago as a flightline electrician on military aircraft, and my dad was a commercial and residential electrician, and it still didn't occur to me that this could happen. I've been anxious to find a reel that doesn't cost an arm and a leg but now wonder if I ought to just leave it alone...

That looks great. I've got a 1960s era Delta/Rockwell press that still works but it looks like hell with all the rust and dirt. I was thinking of just replacing it but I hang onto it for sentimental reasons. Could be a fun project.
