The cash will go a long way for tooling in the shop,and perhaps a nice dinner out for the wife and I.

Jay, you bandit! :D

Dang, that's a good price to get but even so, I use mine too much to think about selling. :(

Hmm, how much is one of those magnetic base drill presses worth?

Too many Variables to say.

One thing in the Coles drills favour is it doesn't require any power like the sticky drills and it's not as heavy.

The guy that bought the drill probably has a $100000 job someplace and that was just the tool he needed to get the job done. He bid that much to be sure to get the tool and like IO, he is smilling all the way to the bank. You guys thought he was crazy.

A new one starts at $800 if I remember correctly, but after the second one gets dropped in the same day, you won't be able to find one for less than $1200.

Aside from the problems that John already mentioned is if your using one on its side, you have to sling it for safety or risk it hitting the ground. Also they don't work well on rounded post.

You can build a poor man's version with a side handle trailer jack and an old 1/2" drill. Weld a plate to the bottom of the jack and then either tack weld it in place or c-clamp it.

I was just reminded of the magnetic drill presses when IO mentioned his cole drill selling for a nice price. I was over at Steam Town and they used one of those magnetic drill presses to drill all the holes for the PRR K4 pacific's new mud ring for the boiler. Not a small job, was impressed.
The cole drill looks like a simple enough design, might be a fun project to make your own version of it.

The Cole drill looks nice, but what do you do when you need to drill a hole 11 5/16" in from the side of a solid plate?

Seems like you need some other pieces at that point.... or a mag drill.
