Our local Sears is going out of business and they have the floor model of their $379 3/4 HP 15" drill press marked down to $210. It seems like a pretty good deal and I'm kind of on the fence about buying it. I know there are other drills available that might be a bit better, like the 1 HP Porter Cable 12-speed Lowes has for $299. Just wondering if the extra $89 is worth it. The Porter Cable has a 4" spindle travel while the Craftsman only has 3.23" travel. RPMs are 300-3100 on the Porter Cable while the Craftsman is 240-3470 rpm. I do have my reservations about Craftsman tools, however. They just aren't made as well as they used to be. I have an old 70s Craftsman contractor table saw that I kind of brought back to its former glory and it seems to work great. I've read some rather disappointing reviews on Craftsman these days, though.
