Unfortunately this very nice bench top drill press with twin laser guides has a few glitches.The table platform will not tighten no matter how tight you turn the crank. number two the belt adjustment does not move. So what looked promising and great value for a wood shop was returned to factory for replacement for the upgraded 02 model. I must say that Bosch who owns Skill acknowledged the problem and are sending me the return stiicker, no hassle. Getting back to the press, for normal DIY woodworking this is a real nice machine with many features such as a kill switch and the twin lasers. It is easy to set up weight is about 50 lbs. packed very well. Price is about $120 from Amazon. Just remember only 02 series. I read another blog somewhere referencing the 01 problem, I did not pay attention then.
