1/12 SCALE WORKING MODEL 1890s DRILL PRESS
That’s right! You can actually drill holes with this baby! This little darling was scaled down to 1/12 scale from the J.E. Snyder Company, 21 upright drill press as found in illustration #450 on page 116 of the Charles A. Strelinger Company catalog of 1895. The drill press measures 6-1/2″ high.
Picture this in your mind! A display representing an 1895 machine shop with wooden beam construction. At one end is the engine room, complete with one of our engines and boilers. Then the rest of the 1895 machine shop with our beautiful little drill press working away alongside one of our awesome model lathes. What a sight! But wait, there’s more! Much more. Build your machine shop with expansion in mind; because you will want to build our complete line of model machine tools.
Kit comes complete with 13 easy machining aluminum castings, all required hardware, material, bar stock, pre-cut gear stock, finished bevel gears, and complete working drawings. Machining and assembly required.

How cool is this. You get to make something like a 0000 Morse taper, male and female. Make your own reamer and cutter for the T slots. You get to reuse the T cutter, plenty when you build the shaper.
