The home depot site (and several other sites) stated that the delta 18-900L would be on sale for $799.99 until 9/30. Its 9/17 and its gone back to full price. I was just about to order this. Why has the price gone back up before the end of the sale?!

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool! Once set up, it's a joy to work with. It's solid and easy to adjust. I used a hoist to raise the head onto the column because the head weighs roughly 100 pounds and lifting such over my head stopped decades ago. The alternative would have been to assemble it with the column horizontal, the tip the whole thing upright. For me, same problem. Hoisting the head over the vertical column and lowering it worked better for me. Re the "Good" rather than "Excellent" quality, I would actually rate it 98 out of 100. The connector for the work light is flimsy and is not attached to the wire at all, let alone securely. My first career was as an electrical engineer, so no big deal, but it's one of the places where "Made in China" shows. Another is the table tilt pointer. It requires separate assembly and looks like a toy. In operation, the belt noise sounds cheap, but the tool works perfectly. Unless you have a pickup truck and a good, strong friend, pay the $55 to have it delivered to your home or shop. The 265 pound box is too large to fit in any car I've ever owned. In sum, I got my money's worth. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great tool shipping box - heavy, (260+ ls.) but if the plastic banding is not cut off, 2 people can easily load into pickup. Assembly fairly easy. You will either need a hoist or 2 strong people with to lift head & motor at least 5 feet in the air to slide onto shaft. I chose a come-a-long and a beam. Works like a champ. large table, stable, powerful. works better than advertised. Dislikes: Price could be lower.... look for sales. Chuck key holder a bit cheap, look for a better one. Overall - - - 5 stars !! February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great value for money and surprisingly well made Probably the best drill press available for non commercial use at this price point. Assembly was very easy and I was able to get the drill press together in about an hour without any help. The dual axis tilting table is a really nice feature as is the replaceable block of wood beneath the chuck. The lasers are a useful addition to the press. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the press, particularly since it's made in China. Like any drill or drill press, using properly sharpened quality bits, a good cutting fluid, the correct rpm and the right amount of pressure for the material being drilled will produce excellent results while increasing the longevity of the drill/press and drill bits. I commonly need to put holes in steel plate ranging from 1/8" to 1/2" in thickness and this press has no problem doing this over and over again. So far I couldn't be happier with the press and feel that my $1,000 was very well spent. April 21, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Big DP Drill Press was picked up at location, excellent service department helped loading it , after opening it and looking for any possible damage during shipping, all was well. There was some surface rust and milling chips under the base, upon cleaning and assembly looks real good. The only real problem was, one side of laser lamp went out. After call the toll free number they sent a replacement, but that one could not be adjusted, glued in tight, they sent another one and all's well. Very pleased with with it November 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 14, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rendered useless I'm a professional wood worker and manufacture products for sale. I also owned a precision machining business for 20 years so i have a lot of experience working with equipment. The drill press has everything going for it except that the most important part makes the machine i bought worthless. Let me explain: The table, smooth running, power, spindle travel are all awesome. Now for the bad. The spindle has a bad wobble to it which renders it useless. After trying out the arbor and chuck that came with the machine that had serious wobble. I bought and installed an American made Jacobs arbor and chuck, however:, the result were only slightly better. I went out and bought a porter cable drill press for 319 one third the price and it extremely accurate. Maybe i just ended up with a bad machine. I would strongly suggest looking up the reviews on amazon. Good luck. October 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Top of the Class Drill Press I have owned a Delta drill press for 25 years and been pleased with its performance. (It is still running strong in the home shop of a relative.) Given that the company has changed ownership several times I was concerned that this new model would not live up to the standards of the past. Now that I have it set up in my shop, I believe that it does: I take heart that the company is now again based in the United States; this model is heavier, thereby enhancing stability, has a slightly deeper throat, and a larger, better designed table. Assembly was not difficult, and the instructions were clear. The laser light was easy to adjust and is a welcome feature as is the included LED work light. Setting drilling depth is also easier than on the old unit. Heavier than most home shop drill presses, the 18-900L has a professional look and feel that I believe make it an excellent value in its price range. October 3, 2015
