Other than a $.49 set screw I had to get, my $70 five speed benchtop Drill press is doing just fine.

Used the other day, in fact. Had a tote for a plane to drill, counter-bore, and even a couple Forstner bit holesto ease cutting it out

The only gripe? I hate that little plunger on the chuck key. That sticker everybody hates? well, it is flaking off now, I’ll just let it fall off into the trash. Might even re-paint the drill press a “white” colour, and draw “FOX” on it with a sharpie…

Also just picked up a small $10 “Dremel” style tool, part of an 80 pc set. Not a “real” Dremel by any means, but it still does the jobs I need done, plus, any real dremel acc. will fit this tool just fine.
