Laser adjustment was easy; spindle runout measured 0.002".
Returning the Porter Cable PCB660DP was somewhat of a mistake... it was a very good drill press and more so when compared to the Delta 18-900L.

A few months passed and I had heard nothing about the tool, so I gave the SC a call and they said they were still waiting on parts from Delta.

This is my first drill press that I've added to my well equipped wood shop. It was easy to set up. I was able to carry the base, shaft and table by myself. A buddy helped me carry the head to my basement shop. I had it running within minutes. It does not come with a fence. So I ordered the Delta 18-901 24-in Biesemeyer Drill Press Fence The laser was spot on. It also comes with a light that mounts on the left side. When the light is on the laser is very difficult to see. Not a big deal but worth noting.

I really like the 6" quill travel. It runs super smooth. Changing speeds is fast. Pop the lid open, push the handle which losens the tension on the belt, and move the belt then move the handle back. There is a chart glued to the bottom of the lid. Pick the type and size of bit along with the material and you have your needed speed. There is a spot on the right side of the head to put the key chuck. Which helps guys like me who are bad about misplacing tools. I am really impressed by the spindle nuts. They have a side button which allows them to quickly move without turning. Not new to those more knowledgeable about DP's but a nice for me. Machine operates quietly and looks great in my shop with the mobile base HTC HTC2000 Universal Mobile Base Delta supplied all the necessary hex wrenches necessary for assembly.

So far the only problem I've had was the left over locknut after finishing the build. It is around 1/4". ??? Great machine that is probably more than I need. Just don't tell my wife!!

I have had the Delta 18-900L Drill Press since February 2012. The overall look, feel and performance of the tool impress me, but I have had a few problems:

Problem 1
Initially, the chuck appeared to wobble. The fact is, the part that you turn to tighten or loosen the chuck, does wobble because it is not round. However the center portion of the chuck that grips the bit does not wobble, I checked it with a dial indicator and it is less than .0012 of being perfect.

Another reason I thought the chuck had excessive runout was because the brad point on some of my brad point bits was not perfectly centered. When boring a hole, as the point of the bit initially comes into contact with the work piece, the off center brad point caused the work piece to shake. At first I blamed this on the chuck, but I was wrong. I tried other bits and did not experience the wobble of the work piece because the other bits were perfectly true.

I even purchased and installed a genuine Jacobs chuck just to see if it made a difference. I was surprised that the Jacobs chuck was .0025 out of round, so I returned it. Live and learn.

Problem 2
Once I determined the drill press and chuck did not wobble I was very pleased with the tool. It is very quite and has a lot of power. I love the depth stop system and the overall quality. But..

The task light and laser, for no reason, just quit working. I called Delta tech support and Delta referred me to an authorized service center. Guess what? This drill press is considered by Delta to be "portable" and they insisted that I haul it into the service center for repairs, or pay $150 for travel time and a service call. This is a huge and heavy tool, and would have to be disassembled to safely load and haul it anywhere.

Verified Purchase
i have purchased tools for 39yrs. and have used them both professionally as well at home. this is the first time i've had to finish the manufactures' tooling for them. as i unpacked and inspected each part, i noticed the key-hole slots in the base were blocked by "squeeze-out" from the molding process to the extent a bolt would not fit into them. i got a small cold chisel and gently #it's cast so be careful not to crack it# tapped the thinnest portions off. i then took a coarse file and removed all i could and finally took a Drehmel tool w/a conical stone and re-shaped the slots and corners. the metal machines very easily so the job sounds harder than it actually is-about 20 minutes it was like new #gee, i seem to recall recently dropping about a grand for a new one#.
the assembly of the machine was easy, but definitely line up a friend to help set the headstock. it's only [i'm guessing] about 80lbs. but it's tall and you have to raise it about chin high.
with the assembly finished and the power off, i checked all the moveable components. when i went to raise and lower the spindle, the action was extremely rough and it would not return to full-up position.it would hang-up half way. the return spring tension felt fine, something else was wrong. rather than go any further, #i was pretty 'hot at this point-first the base now this!# i immediately called Delta and told them about it. they told me to check for any debris or filings, blow it out with air and-"be sure to were safety glasses" SAFETY GLASSES???!! that's the fix?!!
as i checked the spindle for grit etc.
