So, I have been trying to see if any of the online places are selling the steel city drill presses any more. After a lot of search I did not find any. The sears and Home Depot web site showed a price which was a lot higher than what steel city web site showed on their 2013 flyer. Contacted steel city via email and was told that amazon, Home Depot and sears all currently have it and the reason the prices are high is that they include the shipping charges. Went back to Home Depot which showed the drill and the price but does not allow you to order since out of stock like every where else. Same goes for amazon and sears. The price showing higher since it includes shipping was also not true. And this has been going on for a long time. It makes me wonder what kind of business these guys are running when they don’t even know that no one can even buy their product no matter how hard they try. They don’t even know who their real distributors are. To me it looks like they simply have stopped making those drill presses for a while now but haven’t realized it yet :) could the factory workers be telling the boss who calls in once a year that ” O, Ya, no worries, boss we have been building drills like crazy, you enjoy the beach Boss” and then they turn over and go back to sleep:) any one has any clues ?!

I don’t know about clausings, but I’d personally go for the steel city. It’s a 17” press and has 6” of spindle travel.
