W.H. Leland & Co drill press
This is a very interesting metal working drill press, with a very large sliding table, a sturdy mechanism for adjustment and tons of travel.
Its loud, insanely heavy (700 lbs) and works beautifully. A very worthwhile upgrade from its predecessors and it compliments the Barnes nicely.
The original motor was a 110/220v, single phase repulsion motor. Too massive, too heavy, it was replaced by a modern 1 hp, 3ph thats a quarter of the size. And much quieter.
I acquired this in Feb 2016 (after my self-declared moratorium on additional machines...it was really cheap!)
Unfortunately, this became the 4th drill press in the shop and I needed to clear out the other ones first.
So, I switch tactics, and quickly pressed this into service and decided to clean it up later.
The huge table is a great help. It only moves vertically, without any tilt capability (which I've needed twice in 5 years). Everything is rock solid.
The only idiosyncrasies are
It appears to have been made around 1915, by W.H. LeLand, before the amalgamation created LeLand Gifford.
It seems to be a fairly rare example of this style.
