Questions & Answers

Does this drill press include a quill lock?

If no, please recommend a model drill press that includes a quill lock.
Asked by: Woody
No, but the dual depth stops allow you to lower the quill, set the stop to hold it down, then insert a tool into the spline groove to stop the quill from spinning. I use this method to get extra torque on the keyless chuck I added. Quick and easy.

is this drill press for wood working only

would i be able to clamp metal working vises to the table
Asked by: pound
It is good for wood working and metal working, the table has T-slots for clamping and a removable/replaceable center for through-the-table drilling.

Portable Base

Is there a portable base available for this drill press? I notice one of the reviewers "Don" has a picture of his sitting on a portable base. I suppose one of the 'universal' ones might suffice, but perhaps there's a specific one available for this unit? On a side note, I bought the Delta base for my 13" Delta planer. Excellent quality.
Asked by: albe
No. The machines shipping weight is 290 lbs. It's not easily moved but that's also a plus. The weight makes it very stable.

The table on it looks light compared to my previous drill press which was smaller. Shipping was excellent with them calling ahead to set up a time to deliver. I put it together myself to the point of the head which is much to heavy to lift and install by yourself. I bought a set of casters for a platform rated for more than this weight. That said to use a 3/4 In. plywood for the platform. With this unit, that looks light to me as when I move the unit, the plywood will deflect enough to cause the bolts for the caster brackets to scrape on the floor. Laser guidance is a super feature as well as the LED light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent power tool for the woodworker Assembly instructions were clear, parts were easily identified and everything fit together perfectly. While most steps can be readily accomplished single-handedly, lifting the head and placing it on the floor column is more than a one person job. If you'll be moving the drill press around the shop follow the advice shown in the manual. I'd recommend using two pieces of 3/4" plywood instead of just one. Quill runout was 0.003 in. which is fine for woodworking. Speed changes are easy and relatively quick. The LED lamp is quite bright but it only illuminates a small area of the table. Laser alignment guides speed in positioning work pieces as desired under the drill chuck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, quality product The drill arrives in a large styrofoam cube to protect the drill. 260 pounds. Delta recommends it be mounted on a 3/4" plywood board 29x24 for stability. I used 1/2" grade 8 bolts 3 1/2" long with 2 boards since I countersunk the bolt heads with fender washers on the floor side. Fit and finish is exc. Mounting the head should take 2 folks or you can mount the head with the unit on the floor then lift to vertical. Still very heavy. Assembly is simple. Although they include metric allen wrenches, I found long allen wrench sockets handy for tight places. You'll need a 10mm socket or wrench for the nut on the speed adjustment lever. I mounted the drill press on a HTC HD mobile base. The base works well, but assembly is slow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delta 18-900L Purchase and setup review Good drill press. Did a lot of research and shopped around for a good heavy duty shop drill. I need a drill press that will work for both wood and metal and not take up a lot of floor space. This one will run at low enough speed to work for metal as well as wood and has a small footprint. The two axis tilt table, laser sight and bright LED light put it over the top on my list of choices. Drill showed up at my home depot store packaged very well with no shipping cost. It comes in a big box that measures 30 in. wide by 59 in. tall by 13 in. deep and weighs 260 lbs. I was able to wrestle it into my pickup, but I would recommend bringing a friend to help. It comes disassembled into its four main components. Base, vertical tube, motor with drill head assembly and the tilting drill plate. Everything went together easily and fit very well. Setup was pretty easy. However the drill head and motor are heavy. You may want the help of a friend to lift it onto the shaft if you assemble it in the standing up position. It even came with all the tools needed for assembly and adjustment. Instructions were clear and included plenty of pictures. I have no regrets with my choice or purchase. Home Depot had the best price I could find.

I'd like to say that it exceeds my expectations, but from the reviews, I knew what to look forward to! Well built and designed. Nothing flimsy or shortcuts on quality. Straight forward instructions and included allen wrenches to assemble. When my friends with banana republic tools come over, they'll know I stepped to the plate...no excuses needed.
