After yesterdays post about a lathe, I thought I would continue with the “workshop” theme. Today’s featured auction, the humble drill press, is truly a workshop staple and is used by beginners and professionals. With a precision handle that allows you to slowly and precisely lower the bit, it easily bests a hand drill with its precision, and stability. Thanks to its interchangeable drill bits, it can drill though many different materials and can be used for a large variety of projects. This specific example is manufactured by “Central Machinery” and is model T-583. Equipped with 16 speeds, 1 HP and 16 AMPs it is up for the job and ready for action. The drill is located in New Johnsonville, TN and has a current bid of just $70 with just 2 current bidders and an end time of December 28 at 7:12 PM Central Time (CT). It should be noted that the listing does mention that the drill needs repair, but with simple machinery like this, if you are handy, it should be easily repairable and you can get a handy tool at a low price!

The lathe is an integral piece in a workshop and is used to machine a large variety of products. Baseball bats, pens, jewelry, and bowls are all things that can easily be made with a lathe; as you can see, it is quite a useful and versatile tool. Basically, it works along the same principle of many large tools. Rather than bringing the raw material to the tool, you bring the tool to the raw material allowing you to create more symmetrical pieces and create many products that all look exactly the same. This specific model is a gap bed lathe, sometimes referred to as an ‘extension-type’ lathe. This means that for all intents and purposes it is like a normal lathe, but has the added benefit that it can be adjusted to machine larger work pieces. It can be moved horizontally to accommodate longer pieces and vertically to accommodate wider pieces. A similar ‘Goodway’ model GW-1660 lathe, can be found online costing thousands of dollars, from $4,400 and up. By comparison, this lathe is currently bidding at little more than $1,000 dollars! At a 75% discount on the lowest used price that showed up online, this is quite a find! The winning bidder will have to arrange transport from Salt Lake City, UT and place their bid before December 26 at 10:00 AM (CT), but if you can do that head over and place your bid!
