Customer 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.

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.

Easy to set up, all parts fit well. I'd give it perfect rating but for some shortcomings with the table. The upper groove of the parallel t-slots was milled at 9mm, just shy of fitting a 3/8" bolt for my hold down clamps, but more play than I like for 5/16" hardware. I took the table to a machine shop and had the upper grooves milled to 10mm. The hex head of a 3/8" bolt is a perfect fit in the bottom grove, so no special t-nuts are needed. It's so much more versatile now. Also changed the chuck out to a keyless version with half the run out as the Delta chuck. It's really the best drill press I've ever seen.

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.

Had to re set the motor fan on first use. The plastic fan blades are significantly out of square due to a very thin walled design and were hitting the motor frame. Speed changing is straight forward as well as easy. The table height adjuster could use a longer locking arm for more leverage. Over all I'm very satisfied with the Drill Press. In two weeks I can't think of a day it did not get used for wood, composite or metal.
