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.

Is it possible with this drill press, to drill a bowling ball?

Asked by: Ttt
Anything is possible worth enough know how and patience. You would have to remove the stands and base... Extend the shaft to allow the bowling ball to fit. But I'm a firm believer anything is possible with a hammer and a welder

What is the distance from the bottom of the chuck to the top of the base if I move the table out of the way?
Asked by: BB7
From the top of Base(the stand) to tip of open chuck(without drill bit) is about 10-3/4".

8 in. 5-Speed Drill Press is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 310.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't often need a drill press for my woodworking projects, but when I do, I'm glad I purchased... I don't often need a drill press for my woodworking projects, but when I do, I'm glad I purchased this one. I have limited space in my wood shop so all of my tools (table saw, router table, band saw, radial arm saw, etc) are table top. By the way, I'm not making just small items. I've made adjustable shelves, coffee tables, colonial desks, entertainment centers, built-in wall units! Easy to store, easy to move, easy to use. For its' size, the Wen 5 speed is a pretty tough drill press. I've used it for tough items like oak as well as metal and it does an excellent job. I've found that I don't need a laser centering option. But if you do, pay a little extra for the Wen with that option. I've used standard bits, step bits, flat wood boring bits (don't forget to clamp the item down), and forstner bits and never had a problem. The key is to take your time and let the bit do the work. But that's the rule with any power tool. If you think you need an expensive drill press, think again.

Its relatively quiet and has the accuracy, power and quality that I really didnt expect. Ive used it to drill steel, cast iron, aluminum as well as wood. Its not a super heavy duty drill for steel but with sharp drill bits and reasonable care while drilling this drill can do most jobs. I normally only work with wood but I do on occasion drill other materials. It will drill steel a lot easier and more accurately than my power hand drill.

I purchased this drill press specifically for kydex holster making, but has been used for so much more already. The platform is stable and the platform is table for angles or flat drilling. I did have a slight issue with the depth adjustment where the two nuts were bound together and was difficult to pry them apart, but once I did the depth adjustment was working as designed. It's perfect for the DIYer, as I've used this for several house projects around the house and I've had zero issues. For the price, even compared to cheaper competitors, this beat the price and comes with a better warranty through WEN. Also, the assembly was straight forward and easy to do, and having a 3rd hand would make it super easy but by yourself is doable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good utility, small size I have a small shop in the golf cart extension to my garage so no room for a larger drill press. The WEN 8 fits nicely bolted to the top of a tall bar stool, and I can easily move it around. It's a little too heavy to "store on a shelf" as some ads say. The standard features, operation and power are all satisfactory for home or hobby work. The standard key-chuck works fine but for convenient drill changes I have installed the Grizzly 3/8' keyless chuck G8233. This chuck takes drills down to 1/32" and the press has enough precision to operate with them. With the right setup the press handles larger work, most common woods and metals. It is not a piece of industrial equipment so be aware of common-sense limitations. For my small shop this unit works well and gives me reasonable precision and repeatability for my home, auto and hobby work.

Depth stop is NOT accurate because of flexible plastic part! Depth stop is attached to a plastic lock collar on the quill that is very bendy! this means that the depth stop is not accurate because you can flex it probably an 1/8" or more after the depth stop set point. OOPS! I just broke it showing how much it bends! that was easy to break. lol why make every thing else out of metal but this critical part out of plastic! Don't buy this product.
