Variable speed drill press modification.
The knob you see in the middle is the speed control or pot.
Put Tread mill dc motor and regulator on this royobi drill press.

Great job. I should put treadmill motors on top of my scrap yard shopping list.
Hi Altair, also look on E-bay. there are 2 sizes large and small. then find the controller that fits your application, I have two lathes,
one drill press powered by them love them.
Great mod on that drill press. Did you machine a mount for the new motor?
Hi Altair, see this video on you tube DRILL PRESS DC MOTOR MOD :O)
