Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very sturdy little tabletop drill press This is a very useful little drill press. The instructions say it is for DIY only, i.e. not for commercial use. I probably use it just a little more than the average homeowner. This drill press was purchased because I needed to be able to drill straight holes on a curved steel surface which is very difficult if you are trying to hold a workpiece with one hand and drill into it with the other. Even if you are able to brace the workpiece so it does not roll, trying to prevent the drill bit from walking off is a challenge. So I created a channel in a piece of wood which is just the diameter of the metal being drilled into, and clamped it to the worktable directly under the drill bit. That way I knew the holes would always be centered. The only thing I would change (and I know this would raise the price) is to have a switch to change drill speed. The way one changes the speed on this drill press is by changing which pulleys the belt is stretched over. The press came from the factory set to the middle speed which works fine for me. I do not yet have long-term experience with this drill press, but my prediction is it will work fine. May 16, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shipping is this items only enemy Having read reviews on other sites, there is an inherent problem with the factory on this little unit. It appears that it is common for the belt housing to arrive damaged. This, I believe, is because it is assembled at the factory, probably to save on carton material, and should not be. The screws that hold the assembly down are probably torqued correctly, but during shipping this plastic housing gets broken at the screw holes. This is the only reason I give it less than five stars. My remedy for the problem was to take a piece of sheet metal and drill a couple holes to make a new plate inside and problem solved, which beats sending it back and waiting for a return. Everything else is fine. It is a good unit for hobby or light duty work in my case around the farm. I would recommend this to anyone that either has little room for this type of tool, or does not want to spend a lot to get a lot. January 28, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good little starter Drill Press I had this shipped to my house. There is a bit of assembly needed, nothing too complicated, thankfully, as the instructions are a bit lacking. After a few projects built with this tool I can say it is a bit under powered in any gear. It would drill 1 3/4" holes in 3/4" thick oak with some patience and slow feed with a hole saw. Forstner bits larger than an inch were too much in any gear. The machine would stall out, under moderate load, but this can be made up for with a much slower feed. The gears and belt are easy to change. The table does tilt left and right and the markings are close enough to us when tilting the table. The chuck holds onto bits very well. I did not notice very much wobble with even small twist bits in fine material. For the odd jobs I need a drill press for, this is a good tool for the price. I am not a fan of "big box" store's private label tools, and wasn't going to spend a few hundred bucks for something from a woodworkers catalog. April 11, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by For the price it is good. This was about half the price of the next drill press. the laser is about 3/4 inch off. I have not found how to adjust it yet. but you don't really need. the chuck does vibrate a little as well. So for very fine work this is not the drill press for you. For my little projects it is perfect. Much better than drilling with my hand drill. February 7, 2011
