I don't think it does, and that's a downside to me, but the upside is it's an old school powermatic that could be a lifetime drill press....I'm conflicted.

This got me to thinking about putting some sort of lift on my old Powermatic. I found this: http://www.sawmillcreek.org/showthread.php?131065-Drill-press-crank-table-retrofit

I think I'm going with trailer tongue jack idea. I believe we even have some old ones laying around.

My Powermatic, I believe, is a little older than that one, and is not variable speed other than the easy swap of the belt pulleys.

The best thing about them is that they have the best depth stop there has ever been made. It's easy to lock and unlock, and stays exactly where you put it.
