Overall this is a great drill press for the money. There is one area that could be improved. The crank for positioning the work platform could be angled back so the handle does not come forward of the post. As it is now, the handle interferes with the owner's ability to install a fence without providing a cutout for the handle. This is the only issue, and it is a minor one, so still a very good bang for the buck.
Broken switch cover out of the box, Laser didn't work at all. Not sure why you would need one (at least for my level of experience), Ordered replacement cover online, which went pretty smooth will review again once the switch cover comes in. Wish me luck to see what is wrong with the drill press that I will pick up today.
My husband was thrilled with how quickly this arrived after we ordered it. He had no problem getting it set up and ready to use right away. It doesn't take up too much space on his workbench, either.
The overall weight and machining of the parts impressed me. When it arrived I couldn't lift the box. To me that's a good sign as so much that is made today is plastic and this was not. It assembled without any problems in a couple hours (that includes reading the manual). To me that says that the machining was accurate as many tools, products that I have purchased I ended up having to work to fit the parts together. The laser worked as advertised, and as stated elsewhere on the web, the lines were large. But by adjusting them so that the drill bit shadow fell in the middle of each of the two lines I found them to be reasonably accurate and usable. A great help due to my advanced years and poor eyesight. On first look it seems to be a great product for the price.

This one replaces a stolen older model. Matches or exceeds my expectations based on previous model experience. Flexible light nice. LASER crosshairs difficult to align. Motor dataplate missing.

This rate review came through my wife's account so I have to use this. The only good thing about my purchase was Sears politely refunded it. This drill is not for metal, maybe it will work for wood. The inside of the head mechanism chatters. I started with a 1/4 inch steel plate - my goal - 1/2 inch hole. Slowly and with oil, I drilled a small pilot hole. All was good. Then all went bad. I slowly used 3 more bits each getting larger to reach the goal. Nope, all stalled the 1/2 hp. motor. I could go on but you get the point. Changing speeds did not help. I later purchased a different brand with a larger hp motor and it has real torque. There is so much difference, it's unbelievable. I can't remember when I made a "poor review" like this one but it's warranted. My suggestion is to stay away from the 3 major store bench drill presses with a little 1/2 hp motor. I hope this review saves others time and gas.
I am always chasing good deals specially if they are tools. I found this and the price was very good, provided this is a good brand, and does what I need in my garage. Hope many deals like this are coming.
