I am having to part with my Powermatic 2800 and will be looking for a replacement. The wife’s car blew up and we didn’t have enough money for Christmas, the new Head Gasket, and the new Radiator! Luckily I was already thinking the PM2800 was way more Drill Press than I needed. Luckily I worked a good deal when I bought it and am not taking much of a hit on the sale.
I am 70% set on getting an older model Floor model on CL for $200 +/- . But then again another bench top would really help get back some room in my shop/2 car garage. But then again maybe I should wait and get a milling machine drill press. Not sure why I would need it but who knows when I would want to mill up some non wood materials.
I really hardly ever use the drill press so I am looking for maximum versatility.
Any suggestions? What do you have? What older models were good?
I hope everyone is getting all set for a wonderful Christmas!
