While perusing the Grizzly site I came across the 8.5” 1/2hp H0625 and 13”, 3/4hp H0626 oscillating drill presses. I was wondering if any LJs have any experience with either of these lil’ guys? I like the oscillating feature for sanding (I don’t think I’d have enough use for a spindle sander to justify buying a seperate one, much less the room for it, but having the option would be nice.)
I’ve done some searching but I’ve only found a couple reviews on either, and seems to be a 50/50 toss up between “its the greatest thing ever!” and “omg its a steaming pile of horse hooey!”
Pricewise these are right in my range (the 13” pushes what I want to spend but I’m concerned the 8.5” may be a bit small for my needs) and I haven’t seen any other oscillating presses in a benchtop size (tho if anyone has any suggestions plz feel free to fire away)
