Number 0 Drill Press
This little drill-press measures only 18 inches in height, and I built it from castings that I aquired some years ago.
The chuck is a Jacobs #0 with a capacity of only 1/8 inch, and was especially ordered for this drill-press that I built to fill a need in my shop.
The models that I build, sometimes need ultra tiny holes drilled. I have a drill index, that is sized from #61 throught to #80. A #80 drill-bit is .013 thousanths. of a inch in diameter, not much bigger that a hair on your head. A normal sized drill-press is not capable of handling these tiny drill-bits.
I found the tiny electric motor in the surplus department at Princess Auto. The starting capacitor for the motor is hidden under the base. The base, originally was a pocket from a Toyota Tercel before being transformed into the base for this drill-press.
I made the drive pulleys to accept a Singer sewing machine V belt. This tiny drill-press has proven to be a valuable tool in my machine-shop.
