Was looking for a good way to make my cheaper drill press a little more accurate.

Each of the two lasers needs to be adjusted on two planes: one to make the beam parallel the line of the drill bit and the other to point it at the center of the bit.

I've only had it a couple of days so I can't coment on how tough it is but it appears to be well made.

This is a useful addition to a drill press. Especially when you use a larger bit where the point is hard to see, this greatly enhances your chance of getting the hole where you want it.

It comes with two clamps (straps with rack-&-pinion-like action) to attach it to the press column. The smaller was more than large enough for my drill press.

Each of the two lasers needs to be adjusted on two planes: one to make the beam parallel the line of the drill bit and the other to point it at the center of the bit. An included centering bit (to mount in the chuck) has a vertical line to which you match the line of laser light. When each laser is thus adjusted, the lines cross at exactly the impact point no matter how high or low the table is moved.

The adjustment to point the laser at the center of the bit is held in place by tightening a knob. The other adjustment has a set screw to keep it aligned with the vertical center of the drill bit. That is the one which I found to be a bit fussy. It tends to react, moving back from the point at which I want it to stay. Of course, you move it slightly past that point and have it move back to the right place. It took me a while to discover the set screw to tighten it. (In all fairness, the "quick guide" instructions, the only instructions provided, did mention a set screw. It did not say, "1) adjust the beam, then 2) tighten the set screw.")

If the directions had been a little more complete, I would have had it properly adjusted the first time. As it was, I only discovered my error as I was writing this review. That is a minor matter, since it will not need to be done again. Total attachment and set-up time was less than 15 minutes.

The only other issue is whether I will always remember to turn the laser off.

I make custom cribbage boards, a 4 person board has almost 500 1/8" holes.
With this laser I can make 4 boards in the time it would normality take to make two.
As others have mentioned setup is tedious and time consuming but well worth the aggravation to get it right. The 2 worm-gear clamps supplied with the unit were two small for my Ryobi 10" bench top drill press and I had to take a trip to my local hardware store to get the correct size, clamps could be better. Even so I still gave it 5 stars.
I've only had it a couple of days so I can't coment on how tough it is but it appears to be well made.
I think it would be especially handy for Forstner bits.
Would definitely recommend this laser for your shop.

If your putting this onto a bench drill press, then you will most likely need to get a smaller worm gear clamp for it. They give you 2 overly ridiculous sized clamps. Follow alignment instructions! And expect to readjust it, every so many hours of use. I just drilled 150 holes in an aluminum heat sink and didn't quite make it to 150 before needing an adjustment. It is a damn handy tool. And its pros outweigh the cons for me.

I bought this to add an extra benefit to my recently purchased bench drill press. I have to admit when I got it and went to install.....one of the lasers quit working. took it back off the drill and just before I put it back in the package, I turned it on again and both the lasers worked as they should. So....I installed it once more and left the lasers on as I proceeded to install. Just when the worm-gear band was tightening, the same laser went out again. I took it off again and sent it back. I have learned since that supposedly the problem was the battery. I've got it back and on my drill now. It works just like it suppose to.....so-far. If in fact it was the battery and it holds up.........I have to say it will be a real good investment to my press. Sure helps at speeding up the process of your work a little. All in all, I would recommend this to anyone wanting something of this nature in order to pin-point your mark of drilling holes. I didn't have to modify anything for my installation. All the material I needed was in the package. I still have the larger of the two worm-gear clamps left to use elsewhere. Just have to remind myself every time I get through drilling to turn the laser OFF !! It's really not hard to do since it does put out a good bright beam. Kind of hard not to notice. I've read some other reviews to where they had some trouble when setting up initially..?? Well, I didn't have any trouble at all. A little time consuming, but anything worth wild is worth a little time. Good addition.

This is a handy product once you get it installed and alligned. I have a couple of comments for the manufacturer: 1) a detail of the allignment tool showing the 'mark' (line to use for allignment) would be good. Yes I figured it out after I got the job done. 2: depending on the drill press that you install the guide on, you may have to get a smaller hose clamp as the collumn may be smaller than for the clamps provided.

Works very nicely.

Setup / alignment needs care but produces good results.

I mounted the unit to the cast boss where the drill head attaches to the pillar as this was slightly larger and fitted the hose-pipe clip better. The focus on the lines is better at the slightly larger distance too.

Align each laser vertically first using the supplied tool (cover one laser then the other to avoid distractions). To adjust slacken the 2 Allen headed screws and adjust the laser lens head assembly - tighten and check as you go !

Then rotate each complete unit to align the cross point after slacking off each top thumb screw. Lock everything off.

The cross produced on my unit is very accurate indeed.

The plastic at the back where the clip exits the unit and then goes around the pillar will break when you tighten it if the pillar is smaller than the said plastic piece - beware.

My pillar was smaller than the unit (pillar 70mm : 2 3/4in) but the cast boss on the head was just the right size (80mm) and the unit fitted using the smaller hose-pipe clip as supplied. The clip does have to be well tightened to provide a good wobble free mounting.

Caution if fitting to a smaller drill press.
