The light grey photos are the before pictures. The black metallic photos are the after. Bought this antique drill press for $30 in very good working order. Three cans of spray paint a replacement belt and a new stand. This is to be kind of a working showpiece for my tool shop. I don't have a sandblaster so the layers of paint were carefully scraped off with an old knife over the last few months. They don't make them like they used to, this thing is so heavy it's difficult for two big guys to handle. Hope you like it.

Looks great. Wouldn't it be fun to meet all the people that used that over the years.
