re: drill press

Take the adjustment bolt out and weld a piece of strap to it on edge. Then replace the belts with ones from the parts store. You'll be amazed at the difference it makes. On the other hand, these are hobby quality drills. They won't preform as well as one costing 5 or 6 hundred bucks. One other thing, make sure the set screws on the head are tight. Check them after drilling a few holes, Loc-tight them if they won't stay tight. Also, pick up a step drill bit. When you're drilling larger holes in sheet metal you won't get those damn triangular holes.

I'll see what I can do about the cabinet pics.

Now you can paint flames on it 'cause you just hot rodded your drill press!!!
