I’ve come to have urgent need of a drill press. I cant really afford much right now and i’m looking to get the best bang for buck. Basically i’m limited to a small benchtop model. I could get the HF for about $60, but that’s a last resort. I’ve found the following more substantial options on craigslist:
1. craftsman 21912 basically new in box for $90.
specs are about the same for both. notably the delta appears to be 1/4HP and the craftsman about 2/3hp.
I’m leaning towards the craftsman since it is new, slightly higher powered, and appears more solidly built than the “bottom-of-the-barrel” shopmaster delta. but i’m leary of craftsman.
anyone have any words of wisdom?
