I was walking at the flea-market today and I found this drill-press for ten dollars :D :D.. There is a couple of bugs to work out but the motor runs good :cool: . Has anyone here heard of a Westcraft a western auto brand the model # is 8085.Any help would be great.

I had one of those YEARS ago.Worked fine.The head arm on the post has to be locked down tight.Belt tension was set by loostening the set bolts slipping a piece of wood or steel between the motor and post,pulling tight,and snugging the bolts while maintaining the pressure.Hey,all you want it to do is drill holes - who needs fancy?
