Needed 40 metal pieces drilled fast and thought this could it faster. Big mistake. Tried drilling UHMW pieces, same result. I will try wood next weekend. Probably better for wood. It sucked for metal and hard plastic.
This drill press is a good value for the money.
Assembly was easy even though the directions were a bit hazy. I found the instructions were a bit like an old auto mechanics manual I had. The instruction on replacing the clutch disk started, "Step 1. Remove engine." I'm satisfied with the drill press and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
Could not ask for a better product, small enough for a small shop fits well on work bench and was easy to assemble
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!!
