I’m looking for a bench top drill press. American or European made. I wanted to buy Laguna but they are made in China now. Anybody out there know where I can buy one? Thanks, Bruce.

Hey Bruce
I think most drill presses are made in China or other Asian locations. I would suggest looking at Grizzly or Delta.

If you must buy domestic or european, I suggest looking at craigslist and waiting for an oldie but a goodie to come up for sale in your area. I think that most shop tools are made in Asia these days. Just google american made drill press and some nice looking machines come up, but they are expensive.
