About This Product

Remember when power tools were actually powerful. WEN's 12 in. 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 without touching any pulleys or belts. A digital readout powered by LED lights displays the running speed. Rigid frame cast iron construction ensures accurate holes and prevents wobbling and walking during operation. Our 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° 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.

You’re kidding me, Right?
I purchased this drill press on January 11th, however due to a foot surgery I wasn’t able to assemble it for weeks after that. The day came when i was finally able to assemble it. I was a bit surprised that the laser didn’t line up essentially since other reviews stated it was perfect out of the box. But then I noticed a real problem. The table cranked up fine but slipped and fell when cranked down. I called the company and they said the replacement part was on its way. I received the part today and it looks used and the gears don’t mesh properly. It’s the wrong color, it’s missing two threaded screw holes, the decals are worn/damaged and in the wrong position. I’ve been in possession of this for one month and if this is what I can expect from WEN in customer service and quality then this drill press is going back

    Very nice press. I was considering buying an older heavy duty second or third or fourth hand press but the new features of variable speed without moving belts around and the lazer and LED lights changed my mind. It feels very smooth and solidly built. I put it on a table, I got the wide shelf, the clamps were inadequate. I put 4 clamps on using two of these Black Gridwall Joining Clips - Grid Panel Joiner Connectors. They hold the deck solid to the cable. I also got a smoker cover that goes over the whole thing.

    Damaged Box
    This drill press was easy to assemble. I have only used it a couple of times, so far and seems to be working. The laser light is way off but not really an issue. Maybe due to the fact that it got dropped on its corner. My complaint is, Why is the packaging damaged. Looking at other reviews I'm not the only one with this issue. I guess in time I will find out if this drill press will last.

      Got a lemon!
      Very disappointed in this product. Have other Wen tools that are good. First off, speed only gets to 3020. Not the advertised 3200. Makes a racket when running, like it's ready to fall apart. Table cast part wasn't cast good and they tried to hide it with a weld and paint. The lever that moves the table up and down slips out and you have to screw around with it to engage it (ironically it's right where the bad cast repair is). The speed adjustment lever requires a lot of force to move.

        The assembly went smoothly, had to use the hoist in my shop to get the head on. It is top heavy so be sure to secure the base to whatever it is sitting on. The spindle rpm lever is very stiff, but should loosen up over time. Runs well and does what I need it to. Knocked off one star because of the damage to the box, fortunately everything inside was okay and nothing fell out.

        Table broke off. No response from cust service.
        Used a handful of times. My table support snapped at the column. The crank handle always felt a little clunky, but for the price and country of origin, I wasn't alarmed. About a year later, I moved the table down, STARTED to tighten the column clamp, and the whole table came crashing down. The table support split all the way down near the crank. See photos. Still waiting on my warranty claim response from WEN. According to their website's estimates, it is overdue.

          Just know what you are getting
          The build quality on this DP is terrible, but not much different than similar Rikon and Jet models. There are lots of cosmetic issues, which I decided weren't a big deal, but mine made a clicking sound at shutdown and had an incorrectly installed Motor Compression Spring. CS told me that "they all make that sound", and that the Motor Pulley Assembly could be removed to reseat the spring. The fix was easy, but shouldn't have been necessary. Either pass on this one, or buy with caution.

            Lack of quality control
            The drill exceeded my expectations relative to quality of the finish, as well as the ease of assembly. I was however disturbed at the lack of quality control relative to the fact that the drill's 3 handle feed hub only had holes for two of the feed handles - obviously the part had been incorrectly manufactured - something that should have been caught by even the most minimal of quality control. These kind of problems may seem insignificant to a manufacturer like Wen, but become a very annoying problem for the consumer when you are dealing with a 86 lbs. pound device, which has to be disassembled and returned to a store located 45 minutes away. Other observations were that either the speed indicator is off or the motor RPM is low - my speed range was 510 to 3050 (not 540 to 3200) Also noticed that the chuck is prone to slipping unless cranked down extremely hard - I have two 1/2" Milwaukee drills with keyed chucks and neither of those slip the way the Wen does with the same 2 1/2 inch forstner bits

                Defective production
                The base has one foot 1/16 lower than the rest. Ordered replacement and the same thing. Talked to tech support and they know about it and that it’s happened frequently. It seems to be a factory defect in a certain assembly line product output. Even if you shimmy it up it will be hard to keep from vibration with a motor running 3000rpm. I would suspect that a piece of one base broke off in a cast where others where subsequently made over it.
