Big Ole Drill Press in CA

Recommended Posts

Oow, brings back memories! Thirty years ago I had one almost identical to that one.

Story: Friend who was sharing the shop with me at the time was using it to drill hundreds of hole. He pulled up a stool and set to work. Well he got lazy and started leaning his head against the front. He had quite long hair at the time and it became wrapped in the quill! Slammed his head up and yanked out a huge patch of hair! When I came in the next morning it looked like a rat laying on the floor! Jim came in later sporting a fresh crew-cut! No scalp, pulled every one out by the root. Jim later told me that those roots go all the way down to your chin! Ha! Felt like it anyway.

OUCH! Well that'll learn them there long haired hippie types to keep their hair short. Just kidding but I had friends with really long hair and beards get them pull out and burned off too. I keep my beard and hair short for a reason and that ain't conservatism either.
So none of you are going to run out and buy this little gem?
