Questions & Answers

Can you use bits that are designed to cut holes up to 1" in diameter? The hole of the table only looks about 1/2".

I guess as a beginner I was thinking that the bit would have to pass completely through the hole of the table of the drill press for accuracy. I see no problem with cutting holes up to 1/2 inch because from the picture it looks like the drill bit would pass through the piece of wood AND the hole of the drill press table. But what about when I want to cut a larger hole like 1" or 1-1/2" in diameter that needs to go all the way through the wood? Do I place another piece of wood under the piece that I want to cut? It kinda seems like that may be a solution so that the larger drill bit doesn't ram into the table of the drill press, which would damage both the bit and the table. But since I am a new learner at this I may be overthinking it. I was also wondering if there are other drill press tables that are inter-changable that have larger holes to accommodate larger bits, or is that even necessary? (please advise).
Asked by: Woods
Besides placing a sacrificial piece of wood under your project, yes, that does help with cleaner drill through holes, the table can also be rotated out of the way of the bit, clamp the object to the table, hang the object over the edge of the table, to save your hands from getting slammed if the bit bites, please use clamp. Typical beginner accident.

Does this have a built in laser light?

Asked by: Matt
The WEN drill press does not have a light. I mounted mine on a table with locking casters, if I need better lighting I wheel the drill press to the better lighting.

I use the press for knife making, specifically drilling holes in the handles up to 1/2” and running a drum sander for finger cleaning up finger grooves. So far everything has worked fine and it does what is needed. I am pleased with how quiet it runs compared to the craftsman I used to have.
