Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRESS for the Buck! This is my first NEW drill press that I've bought. I sold my last one I bought used because we moved. So I decided to buy me a new Drill Press. It was delivered in good time/fashion. It's heavy, and it works great for my needs. I've added ( highly recommended ) a mobile base and it has come in handy MORE times I can explain as I have a tight space so moving it around was a must. Only thing I wish it had but not a great big deal is a Laser. The LED light is great, ( wish it had a few settings for stronger light when really needed). I've also added a digital caliper for depth stop. (aftermarket gadget). All in all for the PRICE this drill press satisfies my needs in a busy guitar shop.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from manufacturing default i bought this 2 month ago , the drill press is not like it suppose to be when it come out of box BRAND NEW, motor pulley is not running straight and that cause horrible vibration , other point , you can't change belt position by pulling down motor like its suppose to be , its to tight after 1 month and a half im still trying to return it at home depot with the shipping compagnies and nobody came take it yet , everyday on phone call with shipping compagnies for return , never seem something complicate like that for a return , was my worst experience ever

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ridgit 15 inch Drill press Decent value for money. Easy to assemble with few tools.the upgraded motor is a good addition.Perfect for a home owner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad considering the price /warranty combo Pretty good value for the money. Fit together fine, but factory paint finish on the top cover wasn't great and the LED light didn't work so I had to order a new light and wire that in. However considering it's a floor stand, has a 3/4 hp motor and seems to be pretty accurate, it's fine for what I need. Thank goodness for that RIDGID lifetime warranty though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great drill press for the price Straight forward assembly. It took a couple of tries to set the column collar, but once I got it, fine. Smooth operation with only a tiny vibration visible through the LED light. I liked that the feed handles could be securely tightened with a small wrench (on the benchtop drill press from another brand, the handles kept coming loose). Table adjustment is smooth enough. Operating the depth scale and depth scale lock is a bit clumsy and "cheap", but once you get it, it's good enough for home, do it yourself. The belt tension guide on the inside cover is handy. The belt tension mechanism seems good enough, but I might add to the length of the belt tension handle just to make it a little easier. The operator's manual is clearly written with useful diagrams. I mounted it on a sturdy dolly and the assembly easily rolls and stays balanced without flexing or tilting. My 5/5 rating is for the price, otherwise it would be 4.5/5 (depth scale and lock being the biggest improvement I can see). I have been recommending this product to friends.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Descent but has issues Good for the price. Very noisey compared to other makes. Keyless chuck is awkward, need two hands to open or close chuck which leaves no hand to hold the drill bit in place.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Drill Press Does the job but has to much play in the drill head and wobbles a little to much for real accurate work

Does this Drill Press have a Laser guide?

Asked by: Jason780
No it dose not, Im not sure of what value it would be on a drill press. I have never seen one on the many drill presses I have used.

What is the smallest sized bit that can be used in this drill press?

Asked by: Boolaroo
I`ve used 1/16 bit, because of the design of the chuck teeth it will take a bit of getting used to installing so the bit turns true, but it works.

Would this drill press take a Mortiser attachment chisel

Asked by: Rob H
I have the Rikon mortiser attachment.  the bits were a little too long for the chuck on this drill press but when I trimmed them by about an inch and a half it worked great.
