So for those of you who dont know what I do for a living, here it is.

I work ( indirectly )for banks and property managers and I take care of houses that they have reclaimed... due to repo or abandonment or whatever. And believe it or not, people leave a LOT of stuff behind. On house in particular that I was assigned to do some work for, there was a drill press ( along with a few other goodies :) ) in the house, so I took it ( yes its my job to clear and convey the house, so no I did not steal it). Its a King Feng Fu 3 speed drill press, m# KFF-6 (000985), Medalist Series.

Now I've done some looking, but the best I can find is Ebay hits. Dose anyone know anything about this company or this press?? An operators manual, or any information would be helpful.

It is in great condition and I'll post pics later today.

The only things I could find about it was the manufacturer went out of business due to a cease and desist order from Delta in 1985, made your typical selection of bigger machinery tools (drill presses, lathes, etc.), and were medium/low sort of quality, as they were Taiwanese knock-offs of existing brands. This was from a few forum posts and the google books entry for a bunch of similar orders regarding woodworking machine manufacturers.

Besides that, any information is going to be difficult, since this was long before the internet was a thing, so manuals and parts are probably not going to be available. It is a drill press however, and in my experience a drill press is a drill press is a drill press, especially the older ones, so it isn't like they are difficult to figure out how to repair.

Thank ya much for the info. I would have done the research myself, but I had a lot of work this morning and I just wanted to see if anyone knew anything about it.

As promised, some pics.

Last pic, there is a nut missing on one of the pulleys. But simple hard ware store fix.

It's an average press. The pulleys on the top are for torque and speed. Most drill press manuals will work.
