I come here all the time and usually get my question answered by browsing. But decided for this one I should post my own question.
I found a Delta 18-900L on Craigslist the other day. The posting says it is only a year old, and is listing it for $700. The picture in the ad looks good, the wrap still seems to be on the table, but it could be an old picture. I’m wondering if this is worth it? I’m not in a position where I have to get a drill press for my current or next project, but they are a handy tool to have around, so I certainly want to get one. If I don’t get this one, then I won’t get one right now, and will have to decide on one to buy later on.
I’ve read a lot of reviews about the Delta, mostly positive, but some commenting on manufacturing defects. I’m assuming he has used the drill press so any manufacturing defects should have been found and handled, but if the table still has the wrap on it, then it may be completely unused and just assembled.
Anyone have any thoughts on if this is a good deal?
