Ryan that came out awesome!!! Great job!!! As far as the rods on the side, maybe the big one moves the motor for when you change the belt position for the speed you want. And the small one locks it in place once you have the belt tight?

Great job Ryan. Never thought about making a stand for a bench top drill press. I really like how it turned out. :rocker2:

You did a great job. I used to pick up heavy things and play with them but I hurt my back 8 years ago and have been forced to be smarter. Please don't hurt yourself.  Your next welding project should be for lifting heavy things in your shop so that you don't hurt yourself. I like a gantry that knocks down. Two "A" frames and a beam that goes between them can help alot. Mine is 2" pipe with a 6" I beam. Its 14' tall so it stays outside. But, you could build a small one on casters that would fit in your shop. Good Luck, Rick

That is a great idea, but my garage is only 14 feet by 24 feet. A gantry is way to big for my garage, but an engine hoist would probably be perfect.

Take it from the old busted up guys. Take care of your back. It is no fun to struggle to tie your shoes because it hurts so bad to bend over.

I looked closely, and like Chris said it is to tighten the drive belt. The only problem is that it is seized. I could see a freeze fitting, but it looked like it has never been greased.

I keep forgetting to tell you guys that I am missing one major piece... The chuck key! The chuck is 13mm and made by victor, so it is not the original one. It looks like it just threads onto a shaft? Can I find another chuck?

Hey Ryan, what about just replacing the key?

I looked at those and read that all chucks makes have different size pinion (is that the name?) holes. Not sure if it is true.

There are different size holes, but one of the four will be close and work. May even be a perfect match. I seen one of these local, the other day and can't remember where.(a hardware store maybe?) Just figured it was worth a try; cheaper than a new chuck. Good luck, I'm sure you will figure out something.

Spray everything that is sticking with PB Blaster or the homemade stuff on here. A chuck should work smooth and easy. After everything is loose clean and lube it. I have a couple of old machinist chucks that don't use a key.

 

For a hoist look for a "HOYA" hoist for invalids to get in and out of a bath. When they get alittle rusty they are throw out. I picked one up at the dump, removed all the unnecessary stuff and put a chain hook on the end of the beam. It has worked great on an LGT125 and a BIG TEN. Good Luck, Rick

The chuck is fine, it is the belt tension that is rusted.

I looked up those hoists, they look like they would be perfect for what I need!

I went out and took the top cover and motor off; I got everything freed up! It turns out that the grease fitting, was actually a roll pin! I made sure to put a nice layer of grease on everything before it went back together.

Also, the wire between the motor and the switch was routed weird and it did not have any slack in it; because there was no slack the motor could not be moved out at all with the adjustment lever, so I rerouted it.

Now you are ready for lots of boreing work. I couldn't resist the pun. Rick

 

The joint in the post might be a good place to mount holders for your bits and accessories.
