Hey there. I’m looking to add an 8” or 10” bench top drill press to my work space. I’m pretty limited with regard to space, so 10” is about as big as I can go.

Would someone who owns an 8” or 10” drill press be kind enough to take basic measurements of the tool and report back on the dimensions? Mostly I’m looking for the height and depth. I’ve searched online and found many manufacturers’ PDF manuals, but none of them include these dimensions. I need something than can fit on a bench top that’s 19.5” inches deep.

Thanks for taking the time and letting me know!

I have an 8 inch HF drill that is about 21d x 23h with a table attached. 16d without the table.

Awesome, thanks Chris! Have you been pleased with your HF drill press? I know they’re very affordable…

I haven’t had any trouble with it yet. It makes holes in things, lol. I haven’t noticed excessive runout, as long as I remember to tighten each jaw on the chuck. As you say they are very affordable, to the point of being disposable. If/When this one blows up I will probably go back and get the 10” model to try. I also want to put a link belt on it to see what if any effect that has.

Have your say...
