The cheaper one is the Harbor Freight 5 speed model. You can find it cheaper than that with coupon. Not sure what the more expensive one is. They are ok for the money, but underpowered. Good to hold you over until you can get a better one. Note the really short depth to the column though

WEN is just rebadged stuff. I bought the air filter a while back and it's a rebadged grizzly.

it is the drill press.

for 220 bucks I feel like your within spitting distance of some known brand floor presses... And I doubt the accuracy of these are all that.
