Good Value for the Price
I wanted a drill press for light home workshop use (drilling wood and light metal). Didn't want to spend a mint on it, but also didn't want to buy a useless door stop. Bought this unit on sale, got a Sears card 5% discount, and redeemed shopper points to get a good price. It's better than expected for the money and is a good match for my intended uses. A few notes: HORSEPOWER: I can't measure horsepower, but power has been fine for my uses so far. Compared the nameplate current draw to published values for a few other manufacturers' 10 inch presses, and all values were very close. TABLE TILT: No handle to make this adjustment; tilting requires a wrench (or socket) and a hex wrench. WORK LIGHT: Bright and easy to aim, but I wonder how long the flexible neck will last. LASER: Easy to adjust, but requires two AAA batteries instead of being powered from the press's power cord. MANUAL: Decent for assembly and operation, and includes a good parts list and exploded diagram typical of Sears manuals. It tells how to adjust the drive belt tension, but doesn't give guidance on how to check if the belt is too tight or too loose. More info on lubricating moving parts would be helpful. It also includes a few instructions that aren't applicable to this press. CORRECTIONS TO PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: - Nameplate on press says it draws 3.2 amps, not 6 amps. - No sight window to check drive belt position ("speed setting"), but, it's easy to open the belt cover and look. - No scale marks on fence.

Underpowered
The online description for this press says "six amp motor". It is actually only a 3.2 amp motor as I found out the hard way. Chinese made, so fairly cheap quality, especially the little LED light.
