About This Product

The Shop Fox W1668 13-1/4" Oscillating Drill Press was awarded Top Value by WOOD Magazine because of its versatility. The W1668 can be used for efficient contour sanding in addition to traditional drilling, saving you the cost of buying a separate sander. As one grizzly.com customer review mentions, "this Benchtop Oscillating Drill Press is a good compromise for a small shop without room for two separate devices." The W1668 is fitted with a 1 to 16mm JT33 keyed drill chuck, offers up to 3-1/8" of travel, and a drilling capacity of 5/8" through mild steel. With the oscillating feature, the oscillating stroke length is 3/4". The 12-3/8" diameter, round table allows for drilling and surface sanding at different angles as it tilts 90° in both directions. The table has a clearance hole for use while sanding. This clever design incorporates a 2" dust collection port so that sanding is less messy.

    Q:Is there a problem with this unit? Lots of complaints about chuck wobble, is it assembly error or product?
    by|Mar 10, 2021
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello and thank you for your question. The Shop Fox W1668—13-1/4" Oscillating Benchtop Drill Press manual details procedures for adjusting the quill shaft screw. This screw prevents the quill from rotating during drilling and sanding procedures, and if adjusted incorrectly, the quill may have lash or bind. Additionally, removing and reinstalling the chuck can reduce runout. Tolerances for the this machine are .001-.0012 of an inch.

          Good all around drill press
          This 1668 is my second Shop Fox drill press. I needed the extended quill distance and longer column for greater depth of cut on larger material. It was also important to have a greater speed range, especially lower speeds than on the 1667. The oscillating sander gets quite a bit of use so I decided to stay with Shop Fox when getting a larger press. The hassle of changing belts and pulleys was almost a deal breaker, but other characteristics over weighed that problem.

          Shop Fox W1668 Benchtop Oscillating Drill Press
          Very nice drill press. No surprises, description as advertised and overall I am very happy with my purchase. Special feature of the spindle sanding is great. What I don't like. Manually changing the drill speeds and no laser cross site. Now, I have never had these features before on a drill press, but think they would be nice to have.

            Drill press works great but the oscillating feature for sanding broke pretty much immediately and I’ve been unable to fix it. I am a hobbyist woodworker so it only gets light use and the spindle sander was only used once for a very brief sanding before it stopped working.

                Meets my expectations. A little more wobble in the drill chuck then expected but it is fine for my project and hobby needs.

                Very well built, powerful motor, stable and easy to use, the only part that I did not like was the linear gear for the table vertical movement, is too loose and gets stuck when you try to rotate the table to use the oscillating sanding drum feature but in general is a good value machine and I am happy with it.

                Very cheap chuck.
                First of all, don't plan on using this machine right out of the box. And you'd better be a mechanic to get it set up correctly. I'll have to order an aftermarket chuck if I want round holes. The runout is unacceptable.
