PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Model # 4214

Internet # 204994931

Remember when power tools were actually powerful? WEN’s 12-Inch Variable Speed Drill Press is a powerhouse for your shop. This bench-top, cast iron drill press has the power to drill through metal, wood and other materials. Max drill capacity is 5/8 in. and 1 in. thick cast iron. The variable speed feature allows you to target in the exact speed (infinitely from 580-3200 RPM) that works for your project. While you are working you simply move a lever and adjust the speed as needed. No pulleys and belts to change! Our design uses a mechanical variable speed which allows for the same power and torque through the entire speed range. A digital readout powered by LED’s displays the running speed. Constructed with a rigid frame consisting of cast iron ensures accurate holes. Its powerful induction motor features ball bearings for an extended life and smooth and balanced performance even at high speeds. The 5/8 in. chuck with MT2 spindle taper gives you versatility with a variety of bits and features on-board chuck key storage, so you never have to hunt around for it. Worktable bevels 45 degree left and right for those tricky operations for the perfect right angles. Base has predrilled holes for mounting onto a bench or work stand. Slotted table allows for mounting clamps and vises for effective mounting. The X-pattern laser locks-on to your drill points saving on guesswork and sparing expensive materials. Remember when you could drill with laser precision? Remember WEN.

  • Includes: drill press, mechanical variable speed, laser, fence, table roller extension, 5/8 in. keyed chuck and key, tools for assembly
  • Mechanical variable speed delivers equal torque throughout the range, LED read out displays speed
  • Spindle travel of 3-1/8 in. with easy to read, locking linear depth stop for repeatable drilling operations
  • Durable 2/3 HP induction motor develops ample torque and power

Answer: 
I noticed that too. I have it on my work bench with a few other power tools and I mounted a power strip on the back of the bench. When I'm done working in my shop I just push the off button on the power strip and all my machines go off.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 62 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Nice Drill Press I have recently had the chance to used this drill press for the reason I purchased it. I do a lot of hobby type woodworking and need an accurate drill. The laser projection has proven to be invaluable to me as I require precision drilling of small pieces and bits. One of the best items on the press is the ability to change the speed without having to change belt pulleys After reviewing many different brands I chose this one due to the ratings from others and the price compared to other brands with the same basic qualities. I don't know how well this would work for larger items or drilling metals as most of my work is for wood projects, but I see no reason it couldn't perform. May 3, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by price resonable with convenient speed change Very solid and professional. speed change easy. Easy install. I recommend to all. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Better than I thought. I can't believe that this drill press is better than I thought. The laser is so easy to set up and is dead on. The work light is very handy and the speed change is great. I really like the digital read out for the speed. Can't say enough about the pleasant surprise I got when I saw how nice it is. When you order from a picture you never what you get. This is Better than I thought. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Arrived in perfect condition and I am very pleased with the Drill Press Quick and safe shipping to my home by UPS. Superb packing and nothing was missing. I am blown away with the fit an finish / the drill press needed very little setup. I find the fence and roller attachments to be excessive for my purposes. I like the laser and led light. May 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WEN 12" VARIABLE SPEED DRILL PRESS VERY NICE DRILL PRESS FOR THE PRICE. LOVE THE VARIABLE SPEED. VERY SMOOTH CASTING FINISH CONSIDERING IT'S MADE IN CHINA. EASY ASSEMBLY. HAS WHAT APPEARS TO BE A JACOBS CHUCK VERY SMOOTH WITH NO RUN OUT. May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wen vs drill press Drill press was packed very well. Easy to assemble. Everything was spot on. Laser lined up perfectly. Well made product. Great drill press for the price. May 3, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Performance match current Reviews This Wen Variable Speed drill press has performed as stated in the other reviews. I picked the press up at Home Depot and the shipping carton was in good shape. I found the internal packing also in good shape (no damage). The instructions were adequate for understanding how to assemble the drill press. Assembly took about 45 minutes. I took my time and read all the instructions and checked alignment etc. The instructions said two people were required to put the power end on the vertical post but I was able to do it alone. I did not have any set up problems or adjustment to make. The paint on the unit was good. Attached hardware for repeated drill depth works well. I like the holder for the chuck key on the side of the upper housing. I've only drilled a few holes to date and did not notice any problem with vibration. The morse taper on the chuck did break loose the first time I used it. I set it with a rubber hammer a second time and have not had any more problems. The variable speed adjustment is great and seems to work well. Definitely plan to bolt the press to the table top because it is top heavy. I think it is a excellent value compared to the other bench top drill presses I looked at. I haven't used the drill press enough to bump the "overall rating" and "quality" to excellent yet but I'm very happy with the purchase. April 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I needed It was just what I needed best one I found for the price the variable speed is great no belts to mess with April 13, 2016
