  • Sieg White & Blue line?

    I've seen nearly everything they make in Red,but have yet to lay eyes on any of the White & Blue drill presses.

    Anyone in the states sell them?
    I just need one more tool,just one!

    You might have to look at industrial suppliers, these are honking big machines, more suited for production work but one has to ask who stands there all day these days drilling holes ?

      Red, White and Blue (not all "Seig&quot

      First of all, an apology to the OP and others for what may seem a hi-jack - perhaps it is - but who cares.

      I hope its worth it.

      Perhaps "Seig" didn't want to combine red, white and blue as it might be regarded as made in the USA or UK!!

      Or OZ!!

      But as all three have had a bit of a battering in the world at large lately, particularly as compared to China ("Seig" included - to remain "on topic") I thought a bit of national pride might be a nice change.

      I started off looking for "red, white and blue" on Wikipedia and "Goggle" and it sort of "went on from there" and developed a life and direction of its own to this:

      Mustn't forget the "Brits" either - probably the first or earliest "red white and blue" people.

      Extract: from "There'll always be an England''

      " ..............................
      There'll always be an England
      While there's a busy street,
      Wherever there's a turning wheel,
      A million marching feet.
      Red, white and blue; what does it mean to you?
      Surely you're proud, shout it aloud,
      "Britons, awake!"
      The Empire too, we can depend on you.
      Freedom remains. These are the chains
      Nothing can break.
      ............................................. "

      Possibly the most stirring anthem/national piece of music ever written. I can remember it vividly from the War years. (I was born in January 1937 - in a then British Dominion).

      We had a lot of English migrant tradesmen in the shops where I was an Apprentice and later. Start singing or playing this and the likes of "Rule Britannia", and Elgar's "Pomp and Circumstance", "Hearts of Oak" etc. and the whole shop stopped and joined in!!!! I've never seen so many tough people with tears in their eyes in my life - I will never forget it!!

      Stirling people - in every sense of the word!!

      And last but by no means least - OZ!!

        John,I have since they aren't table top.None of the usual suspects here have them.I guess I'll have to check with NMDA and see if they list a dealer.

        I did see a Sieg CNC mill on ebay,some seller in Hong Kong is pedaling them.

                He's selling a bunch of old fab equipment, but I don't see any Sieg tools?

                  I couldn't find it either.He had one up couple weeks ago,plus a lot more than what is listed now,but his handle and feedback have all changed.He was at 2,000+ feedback then.
