I have a Ryobi Drill press that's about 10 years old.  It's a Benchtop model and
its in really nice shape, it has a built in light and a built laser, no rust
etc.  I line bored many years back and replaced the bearings and it has really
good runout- probably 2 thou or so.  It has one huge problem however, the motor
is shot.  Its not just the start cap or something easy, it spun a bearing or
something and is very stiff to turn- hums loudly on power up so the winding are
good.  If one of you handy guys have a bit of time and little money, its yours
for the pickup and a 12 pack of Yuengling bottles.  I just hate to take it to
the dump and Habitat won't take anything that isn't 100%.  I would have jumped
at something like this when I was a starving artist- slapped an old washing
machine motor on it, etc.  Pic attached.
