Default New Drill Press

Got it at the local Lordco (NAPA auto parts for those of you yankies.) Was their show model, for just a bit over $200. Spindle is a MT2, came with a 5/8" chuck, and no chuck key, havn't been able to find one that big, they special ordered it, should get here monday. It's a clarke, which is one of the harbour freight type companies, but it seems to be built quite well. Minimal wobble with the spindle all the way down. Also has built in work light, and laser guide. Came with a little vice.

That seems like a pretty good deal, Cam. Having a 5/8ths chuck should mean it ain't no toy.

Yeah well, that holiday decorator thing, you know.

Cool Drill press

Looks like the same one I have , The only thing that has given me problems is the belts , they like to slip , so invest in a good set of belts for it .It will drill to one inch with a twist drill and have cut a six inch hole with a hole saw and a vacuum cleaner (shop vac) Dan
