Drill Press Action, With Lasers

Actual test drilling after assembly.
Slave flash/umbrella camera-right, triggered by hotshoe flash aimed sideways. Tungsten shop light on background, shutter adjusted for high key and leftside yellowish specular highlights from garage overhead light.
Two lasers project a squashed X where the bit will contact the material, as seen on the wood above.
620rpm is the slowest it goes--moving the belt to different pulleys gives me 5 speeds that reach 3200rpm.

It's a Craftsman®.
