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.

This drill press was easy to assemble, arrived sooner than expected and without any issues.

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.

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.

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.

Does everything a woodworker could possibly want to do with plenty of power for large bits, rosette cutters, forstner bits, even circle cutters. It is very easy to adjust and use when compared to other brands. I would suggest getting the fence when you order the drill press. This press also is very usable for metal-working too.

Easy to assemble, it took approximately 45 minutes by myself; a friend to help lift head unit would have been nice. The quality appears to be as good as any and it feels as heavy duty as it looks. I have drilled through some steel and hard wood with ease and accuracy (w/Besemeyer fence).

Came on a pallet fork lifted it right in the back of my truck. Went to together very easy. Would recommend to anyone who wants a good drill press.
