Repurposed // Industrial Drillpress Wall Lamps

When I go out picking the first thing I look for is mid century furniture but it's not always easy to find.      When there is no furniture to be found I look for interesting looking items that can be used in creative ways.  Recently I found this pair of drill presses. When I saw them I knew that they would make great wall lamps.  Fortunately I was able to find all pieces that I needed to complete the project. They are now for sale at Hawthorne Vintage (4722 SE Hawthorne Blvd) for $495 each & on Etsy.

All of the gears on each drill still works making them interactive pieces of art.
The lamps can also be flipped up so that the light bulb is pointed up

  1. Nice work! I am a passionate repurposer and bought one of these at an amish consignment sale for $10 I think I was the only one who thought I got a deal lol! I love the idea of making it a light, I shop scrap yards all the time and am constantly buying pieces to make lights from. Keep up the great work
