On the off-chance

Anyone got a half-decent small-ish drill press they're looking to move on? Doesn't have to have a (working) motor, I've got motors.

Large-ish bench-mounted, probably, something with a throat depth at least

15". I'd also consider a floor-standing one if not too large.

Emphasis on decent bearings and so on - I've had a couple of the el-cheapo chinese variety which tend to rapidly develop play and wandering in the quill/head bearings, leading to a drill that wanders around all over the place.

Do you mean 15" from drill centre to the column horizontally or 15" twixt chuck and table vertically? The former does not sound like a 'smallish drill' to me!

I've got an old 3 phase Pollard Corona that has been waiting for some TLC that I might be persuaded to part with. Located near Southampton.

***king heavy and my back is not up to shifting it so you would need to bring help.

15" as in 15" from chuck to table, vertically. Obviously, bigger is also suitable.

What sort of size/weight/money? (by email if you prefer, remove the spamtrap though)

3-phase per se no use to me, but I bet I've got a motor that'll go on it.

Southampton is not that close, but it could be worse.
