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.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by One Great Drill Press ! The Delta 18" lazer drill press is one fantastic addition to any workshop. Easy assembly, well built with solid capabilties for any project. Home Depot beat all internet prices, and had free delivery to any store location for customer pickup. Just plain hard to beat . . . . June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by easy to assemble but definitely need 2 people. Seems like a quality made product so far but won't know for sure until i get to really put it through some workouts October 25, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 2, 2016
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 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. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Drill Press Meets all expectations! Easy assembly. It replaces my 40 year old Craftsman Drill Press. Laser is very accurate. Six inch quill movement with one turn of the handle is a big plus. July 12, 2016
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
