This is an outstanding benchtop drill press. Its drive mechanism makes speed adjustments a breeze, allowing you to make changes on the fly to match bit diameter and density of material. You simply select a speed range (150 to 700 rpm or 600 to 2800 rpm) by moving the drive belt between pulleys, then use a control arm to set a precise speed within that range.

A digital display gives you a readout of the speed, and the powerful motor provides sufficient torque at low rpm to avoid risk of stalling. The quill has a large range of travel, so you can use long bits without having to reposition the work.

The depth stop holds its setting reliably and has a direct-reading scale. Larger than most, the table provides a broad, stable surface and has a smooth rack-and-pinion mechanism for height adjustments.

It tilts 45° to either side and rotates 360° for easier set-up when work is clamped in place. An integral LED work light illuminates the entire table surface, and intersecting laser lines indicate the center axis. With substantial iron castings and a thick-walled steel column to provide the mass needed to dampen vibration, this is a sturdy, well-built machine.

Backed by a 5-year manufacturer's warranty.
