Is this unit sturdy without being bolted to the floor? Or, does it need to be bolted for safety from tip-over?
Asked by: smwarren2
The base can be bolted to the floor for additional stability. Most users note that the unit is heavy, so unless you are using it for large and heavy items, it doesn't have to be bolted down.

I would like it to be a little taller, with a slightly longer column but overall it is excellent. Motor spins shaft w/o noticeable drag and appears straight. Overall a well built and rugged machine.

The Ridgid Drill Press is very heavy duty and seems to be well built for years of trouble-free use. The most difficult part about assembling this drill press is that the head assembly is extremely heavy and has to lifted up to install on the column. It should require two people but I was able to manage it by myself by tilting the table and column at an angle and supporting it so it didn't fall until I could slip the head onto the column and stand it back upright. The rack seems to be loose and floating and wants to pivot when raising and lowering the table. I called Ridgid's Technical Support and spoke with them and they said that was normal. I believe I may install set screws in the rack to keep it stationary if it poses any problems. I haven't used it much to see how well it drills but believe it should be just fine like all other Ridgid tools I own. I'm not really fond of the LED light as it is not as bright as I'd wish but it does an OK job.

A little complicated to assemble as instructions are in the front and parts descriptions and pictures are in the back. Once fully assembled though, the drill press operates above my expectations. Love the speed/material chart included inside the cover

It does not take much more than 45 minutes to and hours to assemble and put to use. this is a great drill press for the money whether you want to use for metal or wood, has plenty of power for either.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but lacking features I like the drill does a great job and cant beat the warranty i have all rigid power tools but i wish this one would be variable speed most drill presses are even the harbor freight one is for less money besides that no complaints yet but only had it for a week now
