Barely enough to get through a 2x. No instructions for attaching the depth gauge or the shield. Other than that the setup was easy. It is significantly under-powered. I tried to drill a 1.25" counter-sink hole into a fir 2x6 with a forstner bit. The bit barely caught in the wood before the press stalled out.

I can understand that even if this drill pressed is used in a home environment it might not satisfy everybody's needs. Count me in the "YES" camp. My projects are not large so this small drill press will handle everything I do. Most important, it will eliminate the use of a hand drill in frustrating situations. No more walking drill bits... no more oblong holes... the drill bits cut into metal like butter. I did read the other reviews here before the purchase so I was aware of the missing step of installing the chuck guard. But it wasn't a big deal. I was able to remove the chuck in order to install the chuck guard, which incidentally holds the depth gauge. After drilling a few holes I found that the guard is very annoying. Seeing the drill bit at the moment it touches the piece to be drilled clearly thru the plastic pieces is a challenge. This was the first time in my like when I used a drill press with a chuck guard in place so I decided I will not miss it. I removed the screw that serves as a hinge for the guard and unhooked the 2 springs. I left the flange in place since that holds the depth gauge. The laser is kind of useless. While it works, I cannot consider it a "cross-pattern precision laser guide system". Too much of the laser lines overlap to provide a precise target. So the old center punch is not out of a job yet. Inserting the 2 laser batteries is a challenge in itself. One of the batteries just doesn't want to stay put. It kept popping out. The slots for mounting a drill press vise are spaced 4 inches apart. So a 4 inch vise will not fit the slots as the mounting slots on the vise are spaced 5 or 5 1/5 inches apart. You can use a 4 inch vise but it will not be secured to the table. If you want to secure the vise you will need one that has 2.5 inch wide jaws. There is no chuck key holder but one can be easily added. The drill press is relatively quiet when running. There is no vibration. The speed can be changed relatively easy. All in all I am satisfied.

My two concerns are that the main column is not attached to the column support collar and that there's no holder for the chuck. With the column not attached to the collar by a bold or welded the entire drill motor moves at times, unexpectedly.
