Wobbles a little, DYI T Track
Wobbles a little, not that stable, but for the price it is ok. Couldn't find T Track adaptors so you can use 1/2 x 1-1/2" bolts, grind down the sides and it works =)

    So I have only had this drill press for a couple months and will update this review after a longer period of time if necessary but so far I am very pleased with this drill press. I will say this is my first drill press so I have nothing to compare it to, but it arrived in good shape with no damage (as I was worried it might based off other reviews). This was very simple to assemble and I only had to get help from a friend one time to lift it off the ground (It is very heavy!!) One thing I noticed is that the table is solid all the way through. Other drill presses I have seen have openings or drilled out portions in the table for clamps or something, but this table is one solid piece with what appears to be t-track shapes in the channel. I am not sure if I will love or hate that eventually but for right now its totally fine and feels super sturdy. The LED light is nice, and the drill chuck feels solid and well made too! I love the fact that by the way it is designed I can tighten and loosen without any other tools. If you are like me and had no knowledge with how a drill press like this one works heading into it then you may also be surprised by the belts and how you have to change them to change the speed. I have it set on a slower speed because I primarily use forstner bits and so far I haven't had to change the speeds yet to know how difficult that is going to be. Altogether this is a large, sturdy, heavy, solid drill press. I am glad I waited and didn't settle for a smaller bench top press. My friend's who have bench tops tell me that I have no idea how much better this floor standing press is in comparison

      After unboxing the drill the motor fan cover and motor fan were dented in so the fan hit the cover when running. The fan is made of plastic, and the cover made of very thin sheet metal. I asked about getting replacement parts shipped and was told that they can't and I would need to re-box and return the entire machine to the store, which is heavy to do for one person and a waste of my time. This is for a classroom and my students will have to use a DIY repaired new machine since Ridgid can't mail two light-weight replacement parts.

        Purchase this product due to the warranty Ridgid comes with. Assembling it was not hard at all if your use to putting things together. Delivery time was prompt.

        Buying Ridgid tools is about the lifetime warranty
        For this item and heavy items i would recommend opening the box at the store and check for damage, the first one came with the spindle broken, din't noticed until after assembly, (returned) the second one came with the table crank lever broken, not returning it will live with it!

        Not bad considering the price /warranty combo
        Pretty good value for the money. Fit together fine, but factory paint finish on the top cover wasn't great and the LED light didn't work so I had to order a new light and wire that in. However considering it's a floor stand, has a 3/4 hp motor and seems to be pretty accurate, it's fine for what I need. Thank goodness for that RIDGID lifetime warranty though.

        This drill press doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles but if you want a basic well made very sturdy machine at a decent price this is it. All the cast iron is well made, heavy, and well machined. It has a good chuck, heavy duty pulleys etc. I'm a retired packaging engineer and would like to make some written recomendations for improvements directly to the manufacturer on that issue. No parts were lost or damaged and it wouldn't take much to provide a top notch presentable package rather than something that was barely hanging together with multiple retaping jobs along the way. Drill press very good for what it is, package needs work.

        Descent but has issues
        Good for the price. Very noisey compared to other makes. Keyless chuck is awkward, need two hands to open or close chuck which leaves no hand to hold the drill bit in place.
