This is my 1936 No. 62 Atlas drill press. I bought it at an auction for $25. It was in sad cosmetic shape but the spindle, bearings, and motor were good. I did a complete rebuild and restoration including new paint. The base and motor are not original. The base is marked Buffalo Forge and the motor is a General Electric. I could use some new stock pulleys since the current pulleys are worn on a couple of the speeds. I might just modify some off the shelf pulleys if I can't find the correct items.
