Can anyone identify this Drill press?

I am trying to find out who made it and what the model is
It looks like there was a tag on the right had side of the lower stand.

Thanks
Chris

I found it on the side of the road with a free sign on it
I fired it up last week and it was working but the chuck was rusted shut.
The chuck isn't shown in the pic. I took it off right before I took the pics.

That is cool and likely ver well built and should give you many years of good service. Get ya a good 3/4" chuck and youll be tearin up some shat with that machine.

super find!!

Awsome find.
Those style of radial arm drills, have a 100 uses. Bolt it to a solid bench and you can swing the arm around for drilling on larger items clamped next to the drill. Not as portable as a magnetic base drill set up, but with a little creativity applied for mounting just as usefull.
Find a flat surface on the drill head, use an angle finder for keeping the drill head at 0*. Those clamp style mounts tend to creep.

Looks like one I put out in the trash last spring! Mine had the most awful bearings in the head.

Is there a reason to why you need to know the make and model?

Well I think it would be nice to know what I have. Another reason is I would like to see the availability of parts for it. I would also like to find a diagram for it if I possible.

Looks like an old Rockwell / Delta.

In fact the front part (Quill????) is just like my Rockwell / Delta, but mine does not have the pivot at the main tube.

With the rusted chuck you might try electolysis (sp?) to get a lot of the rust out. I have seen some amazing stuff get grought back to life with this process.

Do a search for electric rust removal on the web. Also think there is a thread on here too.

From what I have seen arround here it looks like a Delta. Looks pretty good and heavy too. Great find.

Send a message via Yahoo to Phonedoc
It's nearly identical to mine. I'll compare the two over the weekend and see if I can figure it out.

My bet is on it being a Delta from right after their walker-turner purchase. If it is.. parts are still available.. too bad you just tossed it Paul

OK - I found it. It's a 1974 Rockwell 11-280 32" radial drill press.
here is the manual. it has a date of 06/01/1974.

***Edit*** Here is where I found the manual. Looks like a very good site for finding old machine manuals.

Thanks for the input.
Chris

COOL find!
I have an old Rockwell, guessing 50s got for $100 at a yard sale
been using it for work last 2 years, speed is a bit high, but I drill mostly thin aluminum, I also use it as a light duty mill with a vise that moves in-out/left-right
yours looks most versatile!
