A very nice drill press for the money
Purchased this based on the positive reviews. For a relatively inexpensive drill press, it seems to be of respectable quality. It went together easily and the parts fit well. The manual differs a little from the actual press, but the differences are minor and should not be a problem. However, the manual did not indicate where the batteries for the laser needed to be inserted. The press worked well when powered up and the spindle was very well aligned- I did not notice any wobbling of the drill when it was spinning. My only negative comments are that the spindle travel is less than many drill presses in this price range and the table is somewhat loose until locked in place. The laser is a nice feature, but not really necessary. As some people mentioned, the motor is a little underpowered, but the press is well suited for light to medium duty work.

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.

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.

Sloppy, poorly-made unit

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.

Craftsman 12" drill press

This drill press is very good for my needs, although I have only used it twice since purchasing. It was easy to setup and functions very well. I am glad that I made the decision to purchase this one versus other vendor products I was reviewing. The laser cross hairs have a little play in them, but I'm not thinking it is something that I would use much anyway.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

This is the drill press you want.

After searching around online and in stores i am glad i got this one. Its not a delta but does not have the price of a delta either. Well built, no offsetting while drilling, huge chuck, strong stand and adj. base. great work light to look at work, and lasers work fine, there is no movement in the laser while working. Drills through wood like butter and is accurate. I am really impressed by this drill and can not wait to find more projects so i can do more work with it. it took no time to put together, i am still learning how to adj. the speed but the default worked fine for me with no problems.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

What happened to Craftsman??

I have been a die-hard Craftsman fan most of my life. My workshop is stocked with old Craftsman tools and I have always been a believer in buying American tool when I can. Up till now, I have had no regrets. I bought this drill press after my 15 year-old Delta finally died. I drove to Sears, looked at the floor model and decided I would give it a try. It's been a few years since I've bought a new power tool from Sears, but I figured it was worth a shot. I'm not sure what's happened over the years, but this drill press was nothing short of horrible. Once I got it home, I pulled everything out on my workbench and started assembling everything. When I got it all together, the laser light didn't work at all. Nothing. Ok, I can call Sears in the morning and get a replacement laser, I guess. I plugged the unit to fire it up and not only was it noisy, but the chuck was so out of alignment, when I tried to drill into a test-piece of wood, the whole table would shake from the drill bit not turning straight. This is a joke, right? How can someone take a drill press seriously if it won't even drill straight?? The press mechanism was stiff and the housing covering the pulleys was flimsy. In fact , the whole assembly was cheap and wasn't even assembled straight at the factory. Speaking of the factory, is it even in the USA anymore??. I gave up, boxed everything up, and returned it to Sears. Bought another drill press from another competing hardware store and couldn't be happier. Sorry Craftsman, I'm done with you.

12" drill press

Overall quality is good. I like the led light which is bright and position adjustable. The laser sight was easy to adjust. I do not like the fact that when tightening the table height that the table changes position. The casing at the clamp seems lacking and thinner than it should be.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
