This object is a mixture of all the drill presses I've studied while trying to build it. Almost all images on the net show these things from the left or near side, so I never did quite figure out how the stop gauge with two nuts works. If somebody will enlighten me in the comments I might be motivated to improve what I left in place.
What's on the drill head: 1. Digital stop gauge (the cop-out) 2. Gooseneck lamp 3. Drill RPM readout 4. on-off switches for motor, lamp, and laser guide 5. Release lever for pulley cover
There are close-ups of these in the extra images. One of the images shows the drill with Manny Mannequin, my go-to guy for scale, and in the background, that fire extinguisher is by Bastable (http://www.blendswap.com/blends/view/73941).
Every mesh has a meaningful/real-life name, and the model is grouped and parented to an empty axis, ready for appending or linking.
About textures: I got the BMD_Chrome_0019 material from the tool chest by victorbied (http://www.blendswap.com/blends/view/79124). Readouts and rulers are UV mapped; so is the material called "dark metal" that covers the head, base and other parts. It's actually an ice texture from textures.com, but I messed with it in Photoshop. This texture alone is responsible for the size of the file, so I left the blend unpacked with textures in a folder.
Every non-new drill I looked at was a seriously scuffed up machine. I leave it to youse guys to rough up the finish if you want, to make it less of a showroom floor model.
Please give me credit if you use the model in your own projects.
Thank you for reporting those missing bits! I'll fix that now.
Okay, problem has been fixed and replacement uploaded, but you should probably wait a bit for the new files to publish. I don't know how long it takes for edits to replace originals.
Updated! :D Ready 4 Blend swap!
Totally OK asset, nice work! Note, The texture for the front display is looking for a "readout.png.001" missing in the pack. Importing the RPM.jpg need some position correction in the node editor!
