The overall weight and machining of the parts impressed me. When it arrived I couldn't lift the box. To me that's a good sign as so much that is made today is plastic and this was not. It assembled without any problems in a couple hours (that includes reading the manual). To me that says that the machining was accurate as many tools, products that I have purchased I ended up having to work to fit the parts together. The laser worked as advertised, and as stated elsewhere on the web, the lines were large. But by adjusting them so that the drill bit shadow fell in the middle of each of the two lines I found them to be reasonably accurate and usable. A great help due to my advanced years and poor eyesight. On first look it seems to be a great product for the price.
worked verey good
Very happy with my purchase
This one replaces a stolen older model. Matches or exceeds my expectations based on previous model experience. Flexible light nice. LASER crosshairs difficult to align. Motor dataplate missing.
This rate review came through my wife's account so I have to use this. The only good thing about my purchase was Sears politely refunded it. This drill is not for metal, maybe it will work for wood. The inside of the head mechanism chatters. I started with a 1/4 inch steel plate - my goal - 1/2 inch hole. Slowly and with oil, I drilled a small pilot hole. All was good. Then all went bad. I slowly used 3 more bits each getting larger to reach the goal. Nope, all stalled the 1/2 hp. motor. I could go on but you get the point. Changing speeds did not help. I later purchased a different brand with a larger hp motor and it has real torque. There is so much difference, it's unbelievable. I can't remember when I made a "poor review" like this one but it's warranted. My suggestion is to stay away from the 3 major store bench drill presses with a little 1/2 hp motor. I hope this review saves others time and gas.
I am always chasing good deals specially if they are tools. I found this and the price was very good, provided this is a good brand, and does what I need in my garage. Hope many deals like this are coming.
Easy to set up.
Absolutely wonderful product. It is helping building my boyfriends home business, with out this wonderful piece of equipment he would not be able to do the things he is doing. It also helps make sure everything is in the correct spot and straight. Thank you
One of the laser lights quit working on my Craftsman10" drill with laser. The unit is not even two yrs old. Called to get the laser replaced and was told ...sorry. The drill does not fall under the replacement part like wrenches, socket wrenches screw drivers, ect.. Sears considers the drill to be a appliance like a wash machine and is not covered by the replacement part you get with tools. And the real shocker came when they told me the cost more to replace the laser was going to be more than if I went out out and bought a brand new drill. I do not recommend buying this drill with a laser just for that reason. If the light goes out...your stuck.
I purchased this little drill press about 2 years ago. It was extremely easy to assemble. The instructions were very clear and understandable. The adjustments are really easy. It runs very quite and smooth without a lot of vibration. To give you an idea of how easy and well it works on small projects, along with a router, I made a ship's wheel and two wagon wheels with this little drill press. The accuracy that is achieved when using this product is simply stunning, especially when you look at the price. Great product.
