Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drillin it home. I bought one of these drills about 3 months ago. I read the reviews here and on other sites so I knew what I was getting, but better then that I knew how to put it together. I got it home, did a quick inventory, it was all there, reviewed the assembly directions and proceeded to put it together. It took all of a half an hour and I was ready to plug it in. Yes the tolerance of the run out is not the best, but this is the lowest priced "full size" drill press available and it does what I need it to do, that is to drill holes into steel for my projects and repairs. To address a couple of concerns I have read here, I used a Paint Pen and wrote the belt information inside the top cover, that way if TS doesn't supply the parts, I can buy them at the local auto shop. All of the major parts of this drill can be found, they used common parts in the build of this tool. The lasers for the "X" pattern were set up perfectly on mine and have not loosened up yet. Though it would be nice to have a AC/DC Power supply instead of batteries for power. I have an extra cell phone charger that I am going to adapt to eliminate the laser batteries. I can see the concerns if this tool is shipped in the standard packing that mine came in, It would not make it during a UPS busy season, All in All I am very happy with this drill press for the money I spent.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A few issues, but it works. I haven't used it much yet, so this review is mainly first impressions. Assembly was easy, except the manual left out one important step in attaching the chuck. There is a piece you have to install between the spindle and the chuck, and that is not clear in the instructions. The good: The press runs fine and is pretty quiet. The range of speeds is very good. The depth stop works as advertised. The laser was aimed perfectly, right out of the box. The swing is sufficient for most jobs (about 12"). The bad: The included drive belts are too short. You're supposed to move the motor closer to the pulleys to make installing, removing, or adjusting the belts easy. Then you move the motor away to put proper tension on the belts. But even at the closest position, the belts are tight. I just barely got them on. Adjusting the speed is going to be more difficult than it should be. The laser uses batteries, which is silly for something that plugs into the wall. Now I have to worry about the batteries corroding if they get too old. The warranty is only 90 days. That is insulting and basically useless. If I had known the warranty was so short before purchase, I would have probably been scared away from buying it. Conclusion: This drill does what it's supposed to do -- it punches straight holes in things. And I can't find another drill press of this size with these features for anywhere near this price, especially since I got it on sale for Black Friday. If you can look past the annoyances, it should provide adequate service for the home shop without having to spend too much money. Overall, I am fairly satisfied.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seems adequate for casual use and price is right. I bought this drill press recently and it seems adequate for casual use and the price is less than half that of most other floor-standing drill presses. It came disassembled in a box and it turned out that the top sub-assembly was slightly mis-assembled -- preventing the drive belts from being tensioned. I figured out that by removing the clip on the tensioning lever the dog portion of the lever could be positioned properly inside the case (in the relief on one of the shafts) and the clip put back on the lever on the outside. Everything worked properly then. If you want to be able to take advantage of the tilt capability on the "table" you'll need a 15/16" box wrench to get at the bolt. If you expect to have only an occasional need for a drill press and want one at a good price this should be a fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Tool, Not Great Instructions I wish I would have read the last review before I tried to put this thing together! While it was mostly a breeze to assemble, there is a part that must be installed before attempting to place the chuck on the drill...there is no mention of it in the directions, so be careful! Now that it's together, I am very happy with it. While I did find myself purchasing a clamp for the table, I certainly can't complain that it didn't come with one, especially for the price. The belts are very tight, but the functionality is very good. The range of speeds is excellent, the movement good, and overall this is just a very good tool for the money.
