    TigerCreek's Tools

    Rockwell DP 17-600

    I was given this "drill press".
    It's an early 60's Rockwell 17-600



    Lots of learning, rigging and repairing was needed. The bearing removal alone took days.
    This hub had to be ground down, filled and retapped.


    Many parts are unavailable so they have to be repaired or made like the recreated decal and oil plates.


    Here she is back in service.
