Northern Industrial Floor Drill Press - 16-Speed, 3/4 HP

This just seems like too good of a deal to pass on for $240, anyone have experience with this machine?

Tks,

Kevin K

I just bought one when it went on sale. I've only had it for a week now, but it seems nice enough for me. It's pretty smooth running at lower speeds, but the drive belts are kinda crappy quality. I bought some Fenner Drive Power Twist link belting and made new belts for it. It runs real smooth now, even at higher speeds. I also put a couple of 1/4-20 flat head machine screws in the track for the table. It had a lot of movement in it. I know it was so you could rotate the table out of the way if you needed to, but I just didn't care for it.
All in all, it seems to be a nice press for the money. I'm happy with it.

I think you'll like it, Kevin. If not, I have no idea why you would have bought it.
