I received as a gift over a year ago.. just started to organize garage and put this together. I opened the box and the Base, Column assembly and Rack were all rusted. This was stored on top of my work bench and there were no water issues in my garage. This unit literally rusted in the box from the inside out. As I am over the 1 year Warranty, Sears would do nothing. I was going to try to order replacement parts but after reading other reviews I am going to buy another brand instead.. BEWARE OF THIS CHINESE JUNK... Sears I am disappointed you put Craftsman in the label!!
Ordered this drill press online and arrived the next day with ************* after the holidays. Assembled with ease and started without issue. Most impressed with the light and laser. Appears to have plenty of power and accuracy
This was bought as a Christmas present for my husband. he has only tried it out to be sure everything worked.He is extremely happy with it.We haven't had it long enough to give a proper review, but so far he loves it.
This has to be about the most horrible drill press I have ever used. I have a little 12v dewalt hand drill that would blow circles around this machine. The motor can't be more than 1/4 horsepower because I'm 140 pounds an can grab the chuck at full speed an stall the motor clean out. Not even worth the effort of putting a bit in the chuck I'll rub a bit between my hands like a pilgrim first.
Good: Assembles quickly, generally well designed - well made, good value. Bad: The friction lock for the table height is very hard to use and doesn't easily lock tightly. I see this as a tolerancing/design issue. The table will often swing right/left if you don't wail on the lock screw.
I read the reviews and decided to go for it. I don't have any huge jobs in mind for it, just some wood work for my scroll saw and maybe making some mortise holes for lodge pole furniture. First off, I'm not sure why people complain about the lasers. Mine stays on ****** no matter where I move the table height. There are two screw parts for the lasers. The smaller screw part move the laser to adjust it, then bigger ones above it to lock it in place. Maybe people don't realize this? Great feature for when I am making multiple holes on the same piece of lumber which was a big reason I got this unit...spend 5 seconds to adjust before I use and I'm good to go. Sure, they are battery operated, but when I am using it for minutes at a time the 5 hour battery life will go a long way. Bit spins true when installed with no visible wobble. Light is definitely bright enough for me. Instructions were great. Scan the table in the manual for speed settings for different materials and tape/staple it on the wall next to it to avoid opening it every time you need it. Only annoyance is minor...the lid chatters a ton when it operates. Not sure what I am going to do about it just yet, but I may just put thin insulation tape to prevent metal on metal vibration or something. Great quality, does the job and I am happy I made the purchase. The table guides are a nice plus if I need to use them too.

For a small, bench-top drill press, used only for woodworking applications, this machine does a fine job. There is very little wobble in the spindle, the chuck is well-machined and holds a variety of bits firmly while being easy to adjust. The table is solid and firm, although it has a tendency to shift significantly left-and-right while being adjusted up and down. The light is a nice feature. Speed adjustments are easy and fast. I have not had a problem with power on this unit, even cutting hard maple, oak, and cherry. If your bits are sharp and you don't try to cut too fast (it's a drill, not a punch), the machine is not under-powered. Long-term performance as-yet unknown but out of the box it's a fine machine.
