Is this really worth 100 bucks?

I am not buying this but am interested if you guys think this is worth 100 dollars. I would think a cheap Skil drill press on CL for 50 bucks woould be better.....BTW:it has been relisted numerous times over the last few months.

Considering I got this Craftsman 12" for $75 off Craigslist, I'd say no it is not worth $100.

It was not worth $100 brand new in the store.

That is an interesting 3rd spoke on the drill bit elevation wheel. I have never seen a drill like that.

That's not a woodworking drill press. It's a stand that attaches to concrete for wet core boring. The post is set up backwards, the drill would go on the opposite side they show. Four shields are drilled into the concrete and the stand is bolted to the wall or floor. An 8" or longer diamond core bit, like a deep hole saw, is driven by a 1/2" drill and can drill completely through a foundation wall, bulkhead on heavy construction, like bridges, etc. Inexpensive ones are $250 or more, many are closer to $500. At $100, it's a deal but it's a specific use tool and many folks wouldn't know what it's for.

Looks like a core drill stand. Used to core drill concrete.

Core drill stand sells for about $400 to $600. Buy it and put it on EBay. It will sell in a heart beat.

Cool! Glad somebody knew what it was. I remember Canadian Tire used to stock a drill press rig for a hand drill, but that was years ago, and it never looked as sturdy as this one.

Accurate to within an inch. :)

Yes, it seems very ergonomic. I like it.

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did in his
sleep. Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.

If you want a portable type setup for a hand drill, this DP stand holds a drill very well, and has adjustments to align the direction of the drill. It's light weight and easy to store, and about one third the cost.

Good observation guys on the core drill stand. Iv'e seen them many times on jobs when I was working. Definitly worth 100 bucks if your'e in that trade. http://www.ebay.com/itm/BLUEROCK-Mod...item53f27100af one on EB.

I don't think it would be worth it since you can buy a complete drill press for not much more.

Hi!
The two posted Craftsman DP show what you can do with less $$!
For concrete, it's probably worth it, but we don't catch that drift from you...you appear to want a drill press!
Best,
Marena and Vinny

I had the CT drill press stand, similar to the one that 'cabinetman' shows in post #12. Poor. tedious to set up and essentially no control over drill speed (not enough hands for speed, press and work piece.) I almost felt guilty when I gave it away. New owner made a camera copy stand out of it.
