Vintage Drill Press Restoration

I bought this old rusty drill press from a car mechanic who used it for pressing valve springs. It’s a Hungarian brand with a 380v 3 phase 1/3 HP motor and weighs about 80kg. The Bearings where in excellent condition so i just clean them out with gasoline and re-greased them all. For washing the parts i also used gasoline. Originally it had a two tone paint job in Red and Green. i kept the Red but instead the green i went with Black Hammered look although i m not very pleased with the paint that i was suggested to use, it came out okay. Maybe i re-paint it someday to a Matte Black. the Base plate also needed a re-flattening and a new drill chuck was a must.
Thank you for watching!
