Answer: 
I'm guessing here, but the "10.8" likely refers to the maximum distance between the chuck (i.e. drill bit) and the table-plate. The overall assembled height of the drill press is probably around a foot-and-a half give-or-take a couple inches.

Who knows? The ten inches refers to the drill press's "swing", that is, it can drill into the center of something ten inches wide. I just went out to the shop and measured mine. It's actual height is 29-1/2 inches from the bottom of the base plate to the top of the belt housing.

Answer: 
10.8" is the max distance between the quill and the top of the drilling platform. Here are the physical dimensions:
Bottom of base to top of drill 29"
Front of base to rear of drill head 18"
Width from bottom of base to outside of drill press arms 12"
All measurements are approximate, using a tape measure and eyeballing it.

It's counter-intuitive. Locate the "finger hole" on the top of the plastic motor housing (in the cover). Gently lift that cover . Notice the chuck-key tension clip, mid compartment. I also keep my most frequently used drill bits in this compartment.

Yes you just place the chuck on the table next to the drill. If you are feeling very organized you can even take a sharpie and outline a storage area on your table. Seriously though, don't but this tool if you are looking for quality. I regret my purchase.

Answer: 
I take it that the bushing is broken. You should be able to find one at the local Ryobi service center. Check your owner's manual or website for your local service centers. If it is under warranty, return it for replacement.
If those fail, check at your local bearing shop for a new bushing. Or maybe you could find a machinist to make one out of brass.

10 in. Drill Press is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 111.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10 In. Drill Press This is very nice small drill press. The price was very reasonable, and I am somewhat surprised as to how good the quality of the press is compared to other similar presses. As an Art student, I needed a small drill press for precisely drilling holes for my sculpture. This press is very accurate, and accepts a wide range of drill bit sizes, all the way down to the really tiny ones. As for the reviewer who said the press had no power, I should mention that the press ships with the drive belt very loose. Once I tightened the adjustment knob behind the motor (a step I don’t recall seeing in the setup directions) the press worked great, with plenty of power for everything I have used it for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good quality for the price I had been searching for a bench drill press for many months and after reading dozens of reviews on several drill presses, I decided on this one. Setup took only about an hour and the instructions were very easy to follow. The table adjustment mechanism is a little sloppy but the gears are metal and not plastic. After setup I drilled a 7/64" hole in a hardened steel hinge pin with a used drill bit. No problem at all. I did have to adjust the lasers but that took about 30 sec.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value if you ignore the instructions When I first set up the tool, the run out was insane: about 0.050 with a bit extending just 2in. from the chuck. In other words, it was completely useless. Instead of returning it, I did some poking about in the web to see if there was a remedy. Looking at numerous forums outside of the HD website, I learned that was a fairly common problem. Then I learned that the problem is usually caused by grease, dirt, and inadequate finishing of the spindle and the chuck bore. The assembly directions say to mount the chuck on the spindle before mounting the head assembly on the column. Try this instead: 1: Assemble the tool without the chuck mounted. 2: Thoroughly clean the spindle with solvent, and wipe it dry. 3: Set the pulley to the highest speed and turn the machine on. With the tool running, polish the spindle for about 2 minutes with #600 paper. Turn off the tool and clean the spindle again. 4: Clean the bore of the chuck with solvent, and hand-polish with #600 paper. Clean it again. 5: Swing the table out of the way and mount the chuck. There is no need to remove and invert the head assembly. After doing that, the run-out was reduced to .003 with a bit extending 4in. from the face of the chuck, close enough for my needs. With that issue out of the way, I am quite satisfied. It gets only 4 stars because the column gear rack is very poorly finished.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Drill Press My daughters project called for boring 144 holes 3/4 inch deep using a 1 15/16" Forstner bit in pressure treated wood. Went to HD and picked this machine after reading the reviews. The set up was easy and straightforward although I had to slightly align the laser which was a snap. The laser was a huge time saver! The Ryobi powered through the job effortlessly. I did some research on drill presses and went back to HD to pick up sanding drums, grinders and wire brushes. My new favorite tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value, Pleasantly Surprised at the results First, a little background. I am a homeowner and avid DIY'er. I needed a drill press to drill 35mm holes in oak cabinet doors for hidden hinges. I have about 24 doors to do, so a drill press was really the only way to do this with precision and consistent results. I read all the reviews of this drill as well as the competition within this price range. I was a little hesitant but decided to go ahead and purchase it because it was the only model my local store had in stock and I needed to get something right away to finish this cabinet project on schedule. I also bought the 2-year replacement plan for an additional $18 in case it dies out beyond the usual 90-day return window. I’ll begin with the pros and cons and then you can decide if you want to read the whole review. Cons: Table height adjustment mechanism is sloppy due to poor machine work / design Quality Control – missing parts Pros: Value—This machine is packed with a lot of features for the price. Relatively smooth and quiet operation Easy to use My first impression was that this little machine is actually very solid overall...much heavier and substantial than I was expecting. The assembly was pretty straightforward and the instructions were clearly written and easy to follow. Just about anybody can assemble this machine without difficulty. As a previous reviewer stated, latex gloves, paper towels, and some type of degreaser are highly recommended as you unpack the parts. The heavy cast iron base and the adjustable table are coated with a preservative grease to prevent corrosion. I used a little electrical contact cleaner sprayed on a paper towel and the parts wiped clean with no trouble. After assembly, a light film of WD-40 or other corrosion inhibiting spray will preserve the machined surface, especially if the drill is used in a damp basement or garage. The first issue I noticed was simply the absence of any type of lock washer for the 4 bolts that secure the vertical mount to the base. I recommend that you use a lockwasher to increase the security of these fasteners. As I assembled the adjustable table, I noted that the machine work on the gears allows for a bit of slop in the adjustment mechanism. There is a worm gear that engages a rack in order to adjust the table up and down. The mechanism actually operates ok, but with a small amount of binding and a fair amount of slop between the moving gears. Also, the hole in the table housing through which the worm gear passes is definitely larger in diameter than the gear itself, also contributing to extra play. The height mechanism actually functions ok, especially if you help lift the table with your left hand as you use the adjustment knob with your right. Bottom line on this part—it works but could definitely have been designed and executed better. The “Head Assembly” which includes the motor, pulleys, belt, chuck, and electrical components (the bulk of the machine, and the most complex parts) comes pretty much fully assembled right out of the box. I say pretty much, because all you have to do is install the chuck on the head assembly. This is as simple as placing the chuck on the tapered shaft and giving it a couple of whacks with a mallet and a block of wood. The first defect I noticed was that the battery box for the AA batteries (that power the lasers) was actually missing the electrical contacts on the end opposite where the wires are connected. (I think another reviewer had this problem as well.) As before, with the washers, I was able to scrounge around my workshop and come up with an old battery pack that I could steal the contacts from. Once I did this, the laser guide lines worked great, and were actually properly calibrated from the factory. I did not have to adjust them at all, but the process to do so is described in the instructions if necessary. At this point, I stole a light bulb from my wife’s chandelier and installed it in the head assembly. I plugged in the machine and turned it on. I was actually impressed by how smooth and quiet it sounded. Next, I adjusted the belt on the pulleys to achieve the slowest speed possible, since I was going to be drilling a whole bunch of large (35mm) holes. The belt adjustment is very simple and explained in the manual. The only question I had was how tight to make the belt after changing the pulley location. The manual doesn’t cover this, so I just tightened it until it felt “right”. Caution: The pulleys are some type of plastic or composite material, so I would not try to make the belt super tight. This would also place an undue strain on the bearings of the motor as well as the drilling head. Another happy surprise: The “runout” on the chuck and drill bit (the amount of lateral displacement of the drill bit from its center as it rotates) was virtually zero. As a previous reviewer had recommended, I cleaned the shaft and the chuck very thoroughly prior to installing the chuck. Now, it was finally time to drill some holes. I installed a 1’ x 3’ piece of ¾” MDF to the table with a couple of screws from the bottom to give me a good work surface for the cabinet doors. I laid my door on the table and used the laser guide lines to locate the door and then applied a couple of quick clamps. The depth gauge on the drill head is easy to use, but I did note that the vertical travel of the drill head is not perfectly smooth. There is a very small amount of binding or resistance when it comes to moving the drill head up or down—but not enough to pose a problem. This may or may not lessen as the machine gets “broken in”. Final Thoughts: I drilled 3 doors (6 hinge cups) and was thoroughly pleased with the results. I set the depth for the first hole and after that the next 5 holes came out exactly as the first. Considering that I am drilling a 1 and 3/8” hole in an oak door, I think that the machine worked great. I took about 1 minute to drill each hole and probably could have done it quicker but I want to “baby” the machine so that it will last me a long time. I felt the motor after each hole to check for heat, and it was warm, but not hot. Bottom line: I’m happy with my purchase and would buy one again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little drill press for the money I am a machinist by trade but now work in wood. This is a nice little drill press. I have only used it on wood and the speeds are a little high for metal and will burn up a cheap drill bit. Assembly was easy and the laser is very accurate. This is my 3rd Ryobi tool and I will definately buy more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from When all is said and done, it gets the Job done. have a large Delta Bench Top press that is basically a floor model on a shorter bench top shaft. Needless to say I don't move it unless I need to, and then I call in help. I was looking for a second drill press that was more of a true bench topper. It needed to be light enough to be somewhat mobile, reliable and accurate. I looked at the selection at Harbor Freight and for the marginal price differences of the two comparable models; I felt the Ryobi had the better features. So I went with it, and here is what I find. To me, the laser is nothing more then a gimmick, so I never bothered to put the batteries in. I find that my eye is still the best and quickest tool for the job. The 15w candelabra light is nice and gives out just enough light to be convenient. It does not come included though so stop at wally world and pick up a pack of them. Things I like most: The motor is strong and there is no run out in the chuck to spindle interface. It drills a clean straight hole and powers through hard wood like a dream with sharp bits. The depth stop feature works well even though it is much less refined then the adjustment on my Delta. Lastly, it’s light enough to move around, but still plenty heavy. Accept for the plastic cover and the questionable way it is fastened to the belt housing, the material is all there and plenty heavy enough to keep the press stable while in operation. Things I don't like: Ok, it’s a $120 Drill Press. So it’s to be expected that the fit and finish are disappointing. Everything works just well enough if you take my meaning. Nothing works smoothly, (Accept the arbor Travel), none of the metal parts are "Finished". Every conceivable corner was cut to save cost while maintaining the functionality of the core necessities. Conclusion: It seems that with even just a little additional effort, so many aspects of this press could have been honed. For instance, make the table swivel and height adjustments work smoothly. Use some better plastic in the crank handle and knobs. Make the depth stop adjustment mechanism work smoother and give it a finer adjustment mechanism besides a sticker. (You do have the ability to infinitely adjust the depth of travel, however you are forced to guess and play with the final position as the sticker only gets you in the ballpark) Fit a proper belt housing cover and attach it properly. Finish the milled surfaces and deburr the edges. More attention to the fit and finish could have produced a much nicer press. The trade off being of course that the cost would no longer be $120. Although this little press falls very short in the build finish department, it still maintains the ability to do precisely what it was meant to do. And having used many different brands of shop equipment from Harbor Freight to Powermatic, I can't honestly say that a much more expensive press could produce a significantly better end result. The Ryobi just works. If you got an extra $100 burning a hole in your pocket, you can of course purchase more refined tools with finer adjustments that are easier to set up, ones that are a true pleasure to use. But if you are on a budget and you simply need something to get the job done reliably accurately and repeatedly, and you don't mind taking a bit more time to work with cruder adjustments, then this press can produce similar results to more expensive models. If we could give half stars, I would have given this 3.5 where the comparable Harbor Freight models I would have given 3 or less. The H.F. models too can produce acceptable results, though the fit and finish there are closely bordering on game breaking. Ironically where the comparable Harbor Freight models really break down is in the overall price. One model is about $40 cheaper, and one is about $40 more expensive. In my personal reviews of the three models, the extra cost of the Ryobi over the cheaper H.F model was well worth going with the Ryobi. The more expensive H.F. model had a couple nicer features over the Ryobi, but then it also had a few lesser features as well and for me, the give and take tradeoffs of the more expensive H.F. model did not warrant the added cost. The Ryobi seems to hit a sweet spot between price and functionality. I can’t say that this press will bring you any giddy feelings of happiness the way some high quality tools can. I liken it to difference between driving a Kia and a Zonda to the store for milk. Both will accomplish the task satisfactorily with no discernable difference in the end result. However one will put a smile on your face and a skip in your step, where the other can induce boredom and mild depression.
