Okay, I must admit that I’m becoming a Ridgid Fan. I used to think of them as just home depots in house brand. But Then I found out that they are made by emerson electric, the same company that made my, old Craftsman stuff that lasted forever. Any way I have been upgrading my shop, and I needed to replace my
older Luddel Benchtop drill press. So naturally, I went shopping. After reading many reviews of this one, I took the plunge. I’m not sorry I did, this is a good solid drill press, with very almost no run out at the spindle (all presses have some). Nice strong motor, it had no porblem sinking three inch deep hole using a 2 1/2 ” forstner
bit in an old block of oak I was working on. It doesn’t have all the bells and wistles, but it does the job, and the lifetime warranty aint bad either.
