I can’t speak from personal experience Dennis. I did look up reviews on a number of their other items such as their thicknesser, sharpening system, and saws. From what I seen, reviews for their machines seem to be in good order. Usually, if I can’t find a review for a specific model, my next step is to check reviews on other offerings by the company. If their machines generally get good reviews then I am pretty confident about the machine I have question on.

Good luck,

David

..........or you can take your shopping cart…........and if the planets are aligned, the stars bright, and money jingles in your pocket…......and if the object of your affection looks shiny, and the box proclaims that the item within is technology’s gift to the lucky woodworker….....especially if there is a picture of a seductive female presenting your gift with smile and innuendos….........

...........you….....can do a Drive Buy!!!

......and know in your heart that the reckless indulgence of a spontaneous purchase, makes up for any flaws that might besmirch the pleasures surely to come from such a…............handsome machine….......

.........just make it a gift to yourself….......you deserve it.

Wasn’t yesterday a real tough day on the road?

Go for it.

Dennis I have a Sheppach Basato 3 Bandsaw & it is well made, I just missed buying their planer thicknesser & finished up buying the Record 10” planer thicknesser…I wish I’d gone for the Sheppach I will be honest & say I don’t know first hand about the drill press but the Sheppach bandsaw & planers are well built machines & I don’t see them making a bad drill press. If it’s bargain price & you can afford it & need one as Jim said “Treat yourself” Let us all know what you decide
Best wishes
