A little work at deer camp today.
Looks Art Deco. Very cool.
Not even schedule 80.
Very nice, does the Vari-Slow attachment work well? I've heard some good and some bad about them. Those early 40's presses are almost too beautiful to use. BTW I got a near match to your scroll saw. If you aren't already sign up on the vintagemachinery.org & owwm.org and post up your old Arn, they too love pictures.
Three actually although the 3rd one is a 90's cheapy import bench model. If you look around I'm sure you can score one for a good deal I paid $50 for the gold one and $75 for the grey one. Find one with an intermediate pulley to get slower speeds more suitable for metal work.
Yeah, the vari-slow does work, just doesn't like to hold speed when you start drilling through heavy material. It's alost as if there's a lock missing, yet there doesn't appear to be any place to mount it, at least any obvious place. That actually wasn't on the drill when I bought it, had to hunt it down separately. They're neat to see in operation though. That mohawk press runs beautifully, came out of what I was told was the second Pontiac dealer in the state of Michigan. They were culled with a lot of dealers back during the 2008 bankruptcy, and hung on for another half dozen years or so as an independent. Little tiny place on an old corner in a downtown area. Been in the same family since it had opened. Developers finally came through with the magic number to make them throw in the towel. Seems as though it was Marine City or Alogonac area. Since that mohawk style ended production when the war started in '41, I'm guessing it was original to the business.
