    I'm researching Drill Presses and key points of a product that are important to Drill Press users and gathering my information to create a simple standard survey (on a scale 1 to 10 how important is...). I think the best way to create an accurate and useful survey is to talk to those that are...

    Hi: I have a drill press made by the Union Tool Company Seattle WA. It is model 0005, 5 speed, spindle jt3. I need to find replacement belts for it. I can find nothing on this company when I search for it on the internet. Does anybody know about this company? Did they go out of business...

    I have always had the problem that my drill press has too small a distance between where the drill comes down and the post of the stand. Of course, I could go out and buy a radial arm drill press but that is pretty expensive and as my wife asks (repeatedly) "can you justify spending the...

    Hello all- So I have another Dilemma! I have heard from many of you about the benefits of old American Iron on many occasions. I found a 15" variable speed floor model clausing drill press that seems to be very clean in picture and owner claims to be the first owner. He is asking $800 and I...

    Just joined the forum and excited to get some advice. I've been in the market for a drill press. I recently purchased a band saw and have come to realize it is considerably underpowered/small for what I would like and am doing everything I can not to make the same mistake again. I have...

    Ok, forgive my newness to this tool and woodworking in general, but I just got a Skil drill press (model 3320) and something's not right. Out of the box, I figured it would work properly, but that doesn't seem to be happening. I've tried a few test punches into some softwood and a 1" spade bit...

    :huh: My Dad's 70th birthday is today. I wanted to get him a bench drill press and I have around a $200 budget. He does light woodworking as a hobby. I would really appreciate any recommendations you could give me today. I saw the Ryobi 10 in. Drill Press has some positive recommendations...

    I'm looking for a drill press but not sure what to look for. I will use it mostly for small hobby projects and some cabinet building projects. Are bench models worth considering? What advantages will a floor model have? Are there certain manufacture or models to consider or stay away from? I...

    Any one got any ideas on how to get my drill press to do accurate line boring? The only thing i can think of is to install some kind of stop on a hinge that i can flip into the previous hole, drill, slide, drill... I've got 36 panels to do! Wondering if someone has figured out a better way.

    Hi, I had given up hope that I could fit a lathe into my shop until I saw an attachment in Grizzly's phonebook-sized catalog that lets you use a drill press as a lathe. While I am certain that there are length/mass limitations, is there a place in a shop for one of these? I have read numerous...

    Hi, I have a Ryobi 12" bench drill press. On occasion, I get the whim that perhaps I should upgrade to something else, but I come around and realize that I don't use it anywhere near enough to observe any shortfalls others might find with it. Today was one of those days and to recover, I spent...

    I'm new to this forum but am looking for some advise. I bought a used Central Machinery benchtop drill press for a Cub Scout project where I needed a press and didn't want to spend a lot. Found a 16 speed 3 pulley press with a 3/4 hp motor and built stout. Thought it would work fine, which it...

    this is a great alternative to buying a spindle sander (to an extent). it is a cheap way most importantly. it is made from a delta drill press, a delta sanding drum, some scrap wood, and and a 4" to 2.5" adapter for a dust collector(which could be substituted for a shop vac hose and a shop vac...
