The hook on the end of the tape measure, the amount it moves is the same as the thickness of the hook

I've honestly gone my whole life thinking the same thing about the measuring tape.

Hey guys...Use Liquid Teflon...It's fantastic for lubrication, rust removal and as a rust inhibitor...I use it on guns and knives...It'll work great on all those machines, especially in Montana...Btw, use powdered graphite for moving parts esp in the winter...

HOLY @#$*!!! That dust-filled drillpress was my grandfather's!! He used it for woodworking starting back in the 70s!! Papa, your drillpress will work on! (just in a different medium).

Ohhh...I know I'm a bit behind on the videos but it looks like you could have just ground the heads of the bolts on the inside of your Argon holder a little to make up that space. Pretty sure your measurements were correct...just didn't account for those pesky bold heads. =o)~

Delta is good stuff. Especially of it's older. It'll just need some TLC and it'll last a lifetime.

After fabricating a whole smoker out of sheet metal and mitered angle iron I would of loved to of had the fireball tool squares because it was so much of a hassle to get anything even remotely square.

From the close-up of that seat, for the argon bottle, it looks like you have enough clearance to fix the problem by clipping off and moving the pivot, no?

I happen to know for a fact that Will didn’t really get shocked other than it being an obvious good joke. I’ve gotten electrocuted by 110V and you can’t really immediately free yourself, you kind of freeze up for a good five seconds just shaking lol. I did it on a part which I didn’t think had any current going through it, and I swear I sat there with my arm shaking for a good ten seconds before I realized it was electricity doing it.

Guys, Just flip that tank plate over. It'll still pivot to let you roll the tank on, just at a slightly higher slope!

Those Fireball jigs really do take you a step in the right direction from fabricobbling to actual, honest-to-goodness fabricating.

"Big" drill presses? I've got three of those Delta in the step-pulley version, two floor and one bench. All of them had the same wiring issue yours did, it's simply age...
The big drill press has to be moved with a forklift - Clausing 22V 20" with Reeves variable speed control (think it's the same as your VS (make sure to run the speeds every time you use it) and mechanical power downfeed.
PS - stick with aluminium; you're British, the American pronunciation sounds odd...

On the roll on cart just weld those carriage bolts in and grind the heads off so you have the clearance for the bottle.

Spotweld the bolt and grind down the bolt heads and the tank will enter without having to carry it.

I have one very, very similar to the second (larger) one you have; it was a 1947 piece (Delta/Rockwell). I did a full restoration on it and it's a BEAST. Love it.
