Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Drill Press Modification!

Adam upgrades his shop’s powermatic drill press with a crank to raise and lower the table, but the crank he has isn’t made for his particular model drill press. The restoration and install of the crank goes by fast and works out well, but it ends in the unexpected breaking of another part. Adam’s plan for an upgrade quickly pivot to a disassembly and repair!
