Good value for the price for occasional home owner use. Took two tries to get a good one though. First one arrived in a very beat up box. Had been opened and parts were missing but when I returned it to store they quickly replaced it and gave a additional discount for my trouble. I own many craftsman tools and will return for mm ore.
When I opened the drill press. It worked great out of the box. One thing is that the laser lights didn't work. I still couldn't get it to work and guess it needs to be replaced.
10 " Skill press gets 100+ good reviews on ****** and here we get all kind of negative comments. That does not make sense! This drill has all the cast iron parts, base, table, even the top assembly is cast iron so once assembled nothing can move, extremely sturdy. All fits together great, it is quiet, I do not see any wobble on the chuck with 5 " drill in it (I am not going to measure the wobble, I would spend 3x more on a drill if I would care). So I got 5/8 chuck of excellent quality, dimensions of a 12" drill, very good execution of all parts (all fits), reasonable size and weight, and great price on the Labor Day. Go get the Skill, it is a toy compared to this one!

Chuck falls off, manual is pathetic, Laser alignment moves while working, motor quit working and have no information as to protection, such as internal or external breaker, know it is not thermal. Where is their service?
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!
Have had two parts break and have only used the drill press twice. Appears that it does not have any Craftsman quality. Did not want to give it any stars, but have to give it one to submit review.
