If you have a Big Blue store go check out the Porter Cable Floor drill press. I cant give you a review on how well it works since Ive only drilled 3 holes, which it did easily, theres 34 reviews on their website with almost all 5 stars. It is a 15” 12 speed press with 5/8 chuck, light and laser. Its a 1 hp. I was able to get them to take my HF coupon so it was like $250 with tax. I bought the extra warranty for $30. I looked at the rigid from HD but for me its $500 or so online. I found someone on CL selling them for $350 but the warranty is void then. A little tip for buying big items at Big Blue, go to the post office and ask for a change of address packet, itll save you 10% at Blue. I have been looking and looking at CL and online and I just couldnt justify 200-300 for a used press and 500 for new, so the PC fit the bill.
