Review of my Porter Cable 15" Drill Press

Last year I bough the Porter Cable Drill Press at Lowe’s. I searched around for other drill presses but this one surpassed them all. For the price you can’t beat it!!! A couple features that I really like about this drill press is the 1 HP motor, 12 different speeds ranging from 300 to 3100, floor type, a full 4 inches of spindle travel, and made out of metal. Most other drill presses are made out of cheap plastic, but this one has a metal pulley cover! Unpacking this beast wasn&#...

I just picked the drill press up from Lowes today. They honored a 25% Harbor Freight coupon which brought the price down to about $260 out the door. My daughter and I got it set up in about 30 minutes and so far am very impressed. I haven’t measured the runout yet. I do wish that they would make it easier to tilt the table. This is not an issue with this drill press specifically, it was the same on the bench top Ryobi that I just sold. I will update this review as I get more time ...
