Some problems are not meant to be fixed-or at least not fixed by certain people[/quote]

A perceived problem is not always a "Problem"
I have more questions than answers

Still don't have the drill home (pick up is June 1st, its one of those defence things...) but have found some specs on it.

Woodman TP-2801F.

1.5hp motor, 12 speed, 20mm chuck, spindle taper MT3. Appears to be a superseded model but don't really care, looks like a solid piece of kit that'll do what I need it to do.

Pics and tear-down details to follow after pick up.

After a little diggin a lot of these go for $200-$300 so you did yourself well. It looks lie a pretty decent machine to as long as you don't hog crap through it

Morse taper 3 will allow you to get large drill bits as well as some milling and boring tools.

I'm looking forward to that. Made me happy to see the 'MT3' spindle spec.

Can anyone recommend any type of X-Y axis drilling vice/rig that might allow me to do some very basic milling with this machine? Or am I getting ahead of myself?

mt 3 is good. you cant also get an adapt to make a rotorbroach fit your drill. this opens up a large abound of circular cut options.

For those with long memories...my drill press is now home, set up and has been working hard basically since the day it arrived.

It is a great piece of kit, in excellent condition and fits my needs perfectly. I really couldn't be happier. Don't know what I did without it.

Will post some pics as soon as I work out exactly how to do that without Photobucket...EDIT....okay, here's my drill nestled happily between my two band saws. :D

You go that right, Mike.

Then spend half a day vacuuming the silver snow off the floor! :roll:
