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.

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.

Instructions say loosen two screws use handle to adjust belts, the motor is completely forward, no available adjustment, had to pry tensioner to adjust belts. Expected better quality.

I have had mine for about 10 years and it never let me down. My model number is exactly the same as the one listed above. This machine is a good buy for the money. Do not, however, rely on the limited lifetime warranty, as Ridgid does not have replacement parts for it. E-mails sent to Ridgid went unanswered by them. After market parts distributors list this machine and offer a parts list , but most parts are listed as obsolete and no longer available. I needed to replace the floor base as mine was broken by the moving company during a move. The movers paid for repair cost, but I could not find the part. I had to have one welded together with steel plate and angle iron.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rigid 15" drill press The drill came packaged in a cardboard box with two large Styrofoam partitions. All of the parts were in good shape but the Styrofoam was broken up. It did it's job in protecting the contents. Assembly was simple and straightforward. A little help from the wife was necessary when mounting the headpiece. The drill works well. I've used it on a couple of projects and so far have no complaints. The only issue I have is with the base of the drill. For some reason all drill manufacturers follow the same basic design and provide a fairly small base. While reasonably stable, they tend to fail to compensate for less than level floors. I would really like to see a new base design that would provide some leveling capability and perhaps enhance mobility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to my growing Ridgid shop I was able to assemble in about an hour. I was able to left the head unit on by myself, maybe shouldn't have. Half of the time was spent cleaning the packing crud off of the parts, I guess it needs that to not rust when stored and shipped. It assembled perfectly square out of the box. Runs smoothly and fairly quiet. The key-less chuck i'm not so sure about, but will give that some time. Only a couple of negatives; the light could be better and the crank for the table movement needs a sleeve over it to allow for easier movement, both fairly minor.
