my 2 cents; I had read on LJ’s to not buy a “benchtop” model, as they’re too heavy to move around and by the time you find a place to permanently put it in your shop, it will take up more space than a “floor” model drill press. I wish I would have listened to that piece of wisdom. I have a 14” General International benchtop drill press, and although I saved $50 over the floor model, the base I had to build for it takes up more room than the floor model would have.
