1st post and I’m already needy …
I am interested in the Grizzly G7944 drill press and I’m looking for the opinion of others. I am both a wood and metal worker so my requirements are for a reasonably priced and accurate drill press with low spindle speed for using larger drill bit in metal.
$435 delivered seems reasonable, although I do worry about post-sales problems. For example, what if the spindle has an unacceptable runout and how would I get the issue resolved.
I’ve looked for comparable products from Steel City, Ridgid, Delta and others and I’ve not found one with a low spindle speed of 150RPM. I think the low spindle speed requirement is met here.
My information seeking is around the quality and accuracy of the tool. Any opinions welcomed.
