I’m in the market for a new drill press. The last drill press I purchased was a 12” Craftsman benchtop model and I was not happy with the wobble, it was really bad. I took the DP back to sears and told them about the wobble and the sales guy said “oh yeah, we’ve had a lot of similar complaints from other customers”. Would have been nice if he told me that before I bought the machine!!! Anyway, I need to drill precise holes. I really don’t want to spend any more than $300 on a new DP and I’ve been looking at the Ridgid floor model DP1550 at Home Depot. I’ve read several reviews and most are very positive.
Does anyone own one of these? Are you happy with the performance, fit and finish etc?
