Answer: 
Absolutely not!. It is designed to drill through anything, wood, metal, plastic or composite material. You just need the correct bit and adjust the speed correctly (which is attached inside the housing and in the instruction book).
There are four slots to add clamps. Also, the strong metal table will allow for most any type of clamping.

Answer: 
It's available on-line only. You can't buy it in the store. However, I had it shipped to the store and avoided the shipping charge. The box will fit comfortably in a standard size (5 1/2') pick up bed.

18 in. Laser Drill Press is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pulley Problems Drill press seems to be a good value for the price until you use it. After 2 weeks the belts broke due to very poorly made pulleys in the top. The casting was so bad that the grooves for the belt were no where near smooth, cutting the belts. When we looked at replacement parts for this unit, the only thing that was available was the belts themselves. The pulleys were completely out of stock, which lead us to believe it was a manufacturing issue and not just a single unit problem. We returned it.

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.

I had a hard time getting this unit as the freight company lost the shipment so it was 2 weeks late. The drill looks and feels like quality and so far is doing a good job. It did come with one problem is that the LED light does not work. I called Delta and they gave me the name of their local service tech. Bill Wilson was very prompt in fact he came to my shop the same day i called. He determined that the connection on the Led lamp was cut probably do to a poor a poor crimp at the factory. I have been what for him to return to due the repair but he said he will be he this week. Over all I am pleased with the machine but will be very happy when the light is fixed

Haven't used it much yet but this drill press was very well packaged, easy to assemble - with clear instructions and high quality hardware. The instructions say to use two people to mount the head, and that's probably good advice. I was alone so used an overhead crane to be safe. Its not that heavy but you need to lift it pretty high and it's unstable. All appear to be quality components. There are quite a few plastic pieces but none that are critical. The table tilting mechanisms (in both directions) are nicely built and precise in their angle readings. User-friendly belt change/speed mechanism. So far this product is exactly what it was advertised as. Good purchase.

This is the third floor model drill press that I've purchased over the years. I still own the first two, and inexpensive import that I purchased many years ago and a 16" Jet that I purchased about 15 years ago. This Delta is by far a much better built machine. The table is large and very stable. It has increased quill travel, (6") is much longer than most others. All of the parts (handles...) are well made. Assembly was fairly easy. It's quite heavy. I managed to assemble it by myself, however, it would be much easier with a second person. I've had it for about a month and used it a few times, but compared to my others it definitely stands out as a superior piece of equipment.

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.

I bought this drill press principally because it is the most highest rated across the internet, and a neighbor endorsed it too. It was easy to set up and has worked reliably for the short time I've owned it. There;s not much to adjust once set up. I have found changing the speeds to be a simple process. The more I change the speeds (by rearranging the belts on the motor pulleys) the more proficient and faster I become. The drill has more than enough power. I have made a number of a large Forstner bit holes at the recommended low speed without the slightest difficulty. The bit hardly even create any smoke due to the proper speed and power applied. If you're looking to upgrade from a bench top model (Like I was), this is the way to go.

You'll need help lifting the head on to the pole. Everything is solid, very heavy, and well made. The chuck can handle a range of large bits down to the smallest (80). There's a laser marking system and an LED work light. I was impressed with the packing. It was completely encased in two thick pieces of Styrofoam and strapped to a pallet.
