I appreciate quality tools
Ricky and I picked up this Clausing model# 1670 drill press with a Baldor motor from an auction over the weekend. She’s a real deal drilling machine.
I really like the simple detail of the riveted badges proudly displaying where they were made.
We’ve been cleaning, oiling, and checking over the entire machine and noticed that the chuck spins slightly off center. After removing the pressed on jacobs chuck it appears the spindle doesn’t sit absolutely straight. Hopefully with some more investigation she’ll be true and ready for some serious speed hole drilling.
