I have used many drill presses over the years and this only does everything that those did and more. How many presses have you seen with a light and a laser? This one is made of quality materials and will be passes one to my kids and probably their kids for years to come. It was easy to assemble, even for me.

I bought this on sale thinking it would be a great deal. I have had a smaller Craftsman drill press for 20+ years of trouble free use. I wanted a bigger one with a laser. It comes in a box with a Styrofoam formed liner. This is heavy and after getting tossed around during shipping the Styrofoam inside totally disintegrated. The fan housing was completely smashed in which I was able to bend out to get the press running but the laser doesn't work as the battery door will not close tight enough. I called the 1-800 number and was told to return the whole thing as it was impossible to just send me the needed replacement parts. I have nothing to send it back in and was told to build a crate to send it back in, WTF. Or I could take it to a store. She told me the closest store (1.5 hours away) and that store had one. I called that store and they don't have one and can't order one until they receive the damaged one. This means at best 2 three hour trips to get it fixed. I am just going to take it back and NEVER by another Craftsman product for as long as I live. Don't expect much for $200. Also the non corrosive coating they use to prevent rust leaves a permanent stain on all the stainless surfaces so it doesn't even look like a new piece of equipment after you put it together. FInd a different company to buy your press from,
It's under powered as another reviewer pointed out, but my issue is with the accessories. The laser light never has worked unless I tap on it, then it just flashes on and then shuts off. No matter, I've not found that to be a necessity. But, now the LED light has become a strobe light, flashing on and off randomly. The problem seems to be in the LED itself, but Sears requires you purchase the entire assembly with transformer for $70.

Sale pricing with bonus points plus additional promo savings made this an obvious choice over it's puney smaller cousin. Looks and feels reasonably solid. Seems to perform well for my intended use but has a few shortcomings if you are expecting a an "industrial" dp. Wish the rack was secured so the table could be raised/lowered while maintaining alignment. And, there is no provision for setting table x-y alignment in order to effectively use the table tilt feature As others have noted, chuck will not hold small bits (under 3/64) - but you can pick up an inexpensive small chuck with shaft that can be chucked up, or spend 3x as much to get a second chuck w/taper shaft. One of the applied promo's included 10000 shopywreward points but didn't indicated those would expire within a few days of the purchase. So, it wasn't quite the bargain expected - that program sucks!
I needed a good drill press and I look at craftsman and it was ok but found this one that was a stronger unit, it has a 5.8 chuck, and is looks to be a better unit. I was not disappointed it is all that I thought it would be, works like a charm, easy set up, no problems with it so far, I wood recommend it. the laser light works nice, it's not needed all the time but it is a nice feature to have wen needed
Needed a drill press for woodworking. This is a solid machin. will out last me. Tested it by drilling on the edge of the wood many times no pop outs drills straight. Also used it with a drum sander. Sanded like a pro. Led lite lights up your work area well. Laser worked well but I like to line up my own projects by sight. It a good quality drill press. Will make a nice addition to your work shop. I'm happy with my drill press.
Lots of play in the mechanism and one of the handles fell off the first week I owned it. The quill wobbles in all directions making the drill move all about. The chuck does not accept small diameter dill bits. The work table moves up significantly when tightened. The laser sights jump from one setting to another making it impossible to hone in on a mark. VERY poor quality.
