It's 15" Hitachi drill press. 250-3100rpm, 5/8 chuck, laser guide (neat but unnecessary). Guess I need to pick up a circle cutter and then centering rings will be easy. Till then I'll just play around with the laser till it actually crosses where the drill bit is.

Sweet! Star Wars Bores ...I did not see a shop vac in those pics, if you don't have one, it might be a good next investment. I know with my drill press it made messes faster than I could clean them.

Nice addition to the tool family there OARJeepr.

It's kinda funny actually. I just bought a drill press with a laser guide but I still use an old fashioned broom to clean up my shop.

New trend guys...

a leaf blower to replace the shop vac.

it then leads to a messy room, which needs time to 'settle'. Which means more couch, beer & TV time!!! :D:D

And, teh leaf blower can double as teh 'cheap wind tunnel' for testing!
