Does anyone have any feedback on the Ryobi 12” drill press sold at Home Depot? I have the 12” Delta variable speed and I had the famous pully problem with it. I replaced the pullys and bought a new belt and it never had the same oomph again. Now the switch is starting to go. I turn it on and it doesn’t come ON so I press the off switch and it comes on. It was a great machine for a couple of years, and I love the variable speed feature, but with all these problems I’m over it now. I could get the 12” regular Delta for $199, the Ryobit is $169 and has variable speed.
