      What's not to like?
      I purchased this drill press a few days ago and after setting it up, which took about half an hour, I put it to the test drilling a half inch hole in a piece or 1 inch bar stock. My first real job was as a machinist apprentice. There I learned the triple S-L law. Proper Speed, Steady pressure, Sharp tool & Lubrication. I have a small drill doctor bit sharpener that I run my bits through each time before using. Literally takes less than 30 seconds and cost less than $50.I also purchased a 4" press vise from ******* that weighs a little over 7 lbs. for less than $20, a must have. I started with a 1/4" pilot hole at 540 rpm then reduced the speed to 355 rpm for the half inch bit, kept the coolant / lube going at a steady pace and the drill press performed perfectly. Granted it's not the quality of a Jet but with proper use and care you absolutely can't beat what you get for less than 200 bucks. I say buy it!

      Underpowered at 3.5 amps.
      I was pretty exited to see this new addition to the Craftsman line. Looked like a well-bulit machine that could handle most anything an avid DIY'r could throw at it. With that in mind I ordered one. I examined the machine upon receipt, and indeed, it is well built. Fit and finish is quite good for a drill press this size/price. The LED and 'small' fence are nice features. HOWEVER, this drill press (as of 11/12) is advertised to be 1/2hp/4.8 amps. Well, its actually advertised as 1/2hp "continuous", which is an under-handed way of claiming a product has more USABLE power than it actually provides in reality. Even still, I was prepared to deal with 4.8 amps, which is still the equivilent 1/3hp- enough for a drill press like this. UNFORTUNATELY, this machine is only rated at 3.5amps. Thats barely adequate for a 8-12" drill press, but is absolutely pathetic for a 12" drill press. I think my 3/8" hand drill has more power. Craftsman almost did it right, but came up short on power.

      Quality is ok at best

      Please do your homework before deciding to purchase this press. The build quality is ok/average at best as is most Chinese made things are nowadays. While it's better than not having any drill press, don't expect it to do any heavy work. I know a floor stander is better suited for that. I'm very glad I bought it on sale as I'm pretty sure it would have gone back if I'd paid full price

      Drill press

      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 would recommend this product to a friend.

      Terrible packaging and worthless laser

      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,

      Expensive to maintain

      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.

      Know what you need

      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 would recommend this product to a friend.

      drill press

      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

      Great drill press

      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.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
