Ok,I brought a craftsman 10 inch drill press with led and laser the drill press powers on but the led light (yes it is connected) and the laser do not work.it's brand new.I can not find ant trouble shooting on either,So can any one tell me how to these two to work?Very disappointed I tell you
The craftsman 10" wasn't my first choice, but I needed a drill press and sears is 2 miles away and I went and took a look. I bought the 10" and coudln't be happier with it. Some of the reviews are negative and I was leery of something sub quality. I gave it 5 stars because I am impressed with the quality for the money.
My old 8' Sears drill press died so I decided to get a slightly larger one. Most of my drilling is in wood with some light metal drilling. This drill is more than adequate for my needs. With coupons and discounts I paid $123.00, so for the price this drill is excellent. It was very easy to put together. It has a laser guide that I don't use. Maybe it's me but I find it easier to line the drill up by eye instead of with the laser. The speed adjustment is very user friendly. The drill also has a built in light that I find to be useful. Also, I do like the hand crank to adjust the height of the table. My old one I had to grasp the table and slide it up and down. So, over all I would recommend this drill to anyone looking for a light to medium drill press.
Set up was rather simple. There are several parts to assemble, but it goes together easily and the instructions are no problem to follow. So far it has plenty of power for my needs. The adjustments are easy to access and set. I haven't yet used a large forstner bit on it yet, but everything has cut through easily.
I received as a gift over a year ago.. just started to organize garage and put this together. I opened the box and the Base, Column assembly and Rack were all rusted. This was stored on top of my work bench and there were no water issues in my garage. This unit literally rusted in the box from the inside out. As I am over the 1 year Warranty, Sears would do nothing. I was going to try to order replacement parts but after reading other reviews I am going to buy another brand instead.. BEWARE OF THIS CHINESE JUNK... Sears I am disappointed you put Craftsman in the label!!
Ordered this drill press online and arrived the next day with ************* after the holidays. Assembled with ease and started without issue. Most impressed with the light and laser. Appears to have plenty of power and accuracy
This was bought as a Christmas present for my husband. he has only tried it out to be sure everything worked.He is extremely happy with it.We haven't had it long enough to give a proper review, but so far he loves it.
This has to be about the most horrible drill press I have ever used. I have a little 12v dewalt hand drill that would blow circles around this machine. The motor can't be more than 1/4 horsepower because I'm 140 pounds an can grab the chuck at full speed an stall the motor clean out. Not even worth the effort of putting a bit in the chuck I'll rub a bit between my hands like a pilgrim first.
Good: Assembles quickly, generally well designed - well made, good value. Bad: The friction lock for the table height is very hard to use and doesn't easily lock tightly. I see this as a tolerancing/design issue. The table will often swing right/left if you don't wail on the lock screw.
