1982 Rockwell Radial Ram Drill Press
Beautiful job on the restoration, really, really nice. I've never seen one painted white, but it looks great. From the original pictures it looks like it was in pretty good condition, but I wonder what you did to the internals; did you replace/upgrade the bearings? I have one of these machines, an older version (with the cast legs) which I have been in the process of restoring for some time now. One of the aluminum step pulleys has a chunk missing from the lowest sheave, and I haven't found a source for a replacement. I am considering a variable frequency drive to get around the problem, but yours looks so good all-original that I'm reconsidering. Any insights you can offer into the process would be much appreciated.

Comments are now working
I was getting 100s of spam comments a day so I disabled the comments.
I think I have a spam filter that is finally working so comments have been enabled again.

spacing for stitching
how far from the gun do you put your stitching line so you have enough room for the leather to stretch around the gun?

Thank you for taking the time to put this together so well. I've made a couple of holsters and you have shown me some better techniques that I look forward to trying out and I think you saved me two tedious steps.
Thanks again for your experience, sharing and taking the time to do it well.
