I was hoping a Ridgid DP1550 owner may be able to chime in and help me out.
I haven’t purchased one yet. Space is at an absolute premium in my workshop and, unfortunately, my purchasing decision is heavily dependent on the size of the tool. The drill press cannot stick out any further than 24” off the wall for me. They don’t have any floor models to check at my local stores so I’ve got to purchase sight unseen.
For fear of seeming lazy I do want to mention that I spent over an hour scouring the internet for the following information.
I checked the Ridgid and Home Depot websites to get dimensions. Ridgids site only mentions the height of the press. Home Depot has size specs but they must be incorrect. They state: Assembled Depth (in.) : 56.69, Assembled Height (in.) : 11.65, Assembled Width (in.) : 22.24 I would assume that the depth of the press is 22.4 inches but I cannot be sure that the numbers are correct at all becuase I know for a fact the the height of the press is 65.5 inches (not 56.69).
Does anyone have this information? If some kind soul owns one could you measure the depth from the furthest point on the back of the machine to the front? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
