It also depends on the size of the hole being drilled....that's closer

Reviews suggest too many quality issues, even if I lower my expectations because it's an HF power tool.

Great deal. Hope this works with my budget too.

I have one of these, works fine, quality is what I would expect from HF, no major issues.

I have one of these that I got for about the same price 3 years ago. So far its been great... no issues and enough power for small jobs. It's no floor stander, but its handy.

Boy Howdy, these bench speed drills really did hike in price over the last three years!!

How much does this thing weigh? Just curious

in for 1, thanks.. I just finished a project and really could have used one of these. for this price, I can ignore the typical HF issues.

HF is probably the best deal in the country when it comes to tools. Not sure why they don't expand more. I remember buying a wooden dolly for moving for like $15. I got a multimeter for free and didn't even know it. The cashier just tossed one in the bag lol. The multimeter was worth more than the dolly obviously.

You trust your kids with the darndest things!

i see this down to $60 so this is the best price i have seen.

"Overweight Item subject to $14.95 additional Freight Charge."

Local pickup must be needed to make it ~$50.

Just got one without the extra freight charge... $60.40 tax & delivered

I own this drill press. It works as it should, doesn't take up a lot of space and it's a great tool for the price. You can't go wrong for $50!

Got one....$6.99 shipping......thanks OP

I almost exclusively drill metal with mine. I make flatware jewelry, so I'm drilling through brass, copper, stainless steel and silver. It works just fine.

Jewelry is not an adequate test.

Is this an option? Can the code be used at the register?

Although it may not be enough of a test for some, I do drill through some very heavy old flatware handles, some up to 1/4" thick. For these purposes, this drill press is quite adequate. For these applications, I go slowly with light pressure on the handle.
