Additionally, the B13F lets you lock in depths for precise drilling. The depth-scale ring, located at the base of the feed handle, means you can make quick and easy depth adjustments without the need for special tools.

Powerful Induction Motor with Five Speed Settings
The B13F features a 1/3-horsepower induction motor that is powerful enough to drill a wide variety of materials, including wood, aluminum, plastic, mild steel, stainless steel and more. And with five speed settings--680, 1,160, 1,780, 2,380, and 3,000 RPM--you can choose the speed that's best for your material and bit size (the chuck accepts drill bits from 1/16- to 1/2-inch).

Smart Design That's Built to Last
Everything, from the induction motor to the 7-13/16-inch-square cast-iron table, is built for reliable performance. The cleverly designed table moves along a smooth rack-and-pinion gearing system and locks in place for reliable support during operation. An added bonus, the table adjusts 45 degrees to the right or left for angled drilling.

At 67.8 pounds, the B13F is lightweight enough for easy storage and portability. It is backed by Hitachi's two-year warranty.

the table does not line up with the base, which does not affect the machine workings but does throw the user's eye off. i have yet to find the stops for drilling consistent hole depth. the laser is totally useless and flimsy. the belt adjustment is not easy. there is a grinding noise coming from the spindle. i would say this item is not worth the price asked, but i got mine on the initial offer which had 100 off, maing the price 50...and that is about what it is worth.

i have since writing the above had more time with the machine and like it even less. the motor is not at all powerful; when drilling thru 1/4" steel the press easily gets overloaded and stalls out. this makes for tedious and long drilling times; having to go slow and all to keep the thing from stalling out under this modest load.

I recently purchased this same tool at Lowes for $139.00. I usually buy from Amazon due to their excellent pricing but I needed the press quickly. Its ok. It lacks power and bogged down and stalled when drilling 1/4" teak with a 4" hole saw. I used it for production drilling of rub rails for my boat and it worked fine for that. It pretty much meets my needs but could be a bit more robust.

I purchased this for our business (light and occasional use in wood). It would not come on after assembly, then I noticed the motor housing was crushed on the bottom pinning the fan. I took off the cover and the cheap plastic fan was in pieces. Called and they would not send me replacement parts but said I had to return the entire unit. Not worth the trouble so I have used it without the fan. The lasers are too bright and makes it harder to see what you are drilling. The table will not stay tight and swings to the sides easily making aligment for precision work difficult. This is a $99 drill press and worth $99.....but no more.

Who would imagine a drill press not lasting a year?

A year later, mine was on the scrap pile. The motor began emitting bad noises and wouldn't run. Before that, I kept encountering a long series of quality disappointments. I had hoped for more from Hitachi.

For almost exactly the same $129 I paid for this one, I bought a replacement from Harbor Freight which has held up way better.

Also, having an MT2 chuck mount gives you a lot more choices than the JT33 found in lower end drill presses. The HF has an MT2. This press, a JT33.

I got it, DOA.

I bought this item, as I have other Hitachi power tools that are excellent value for the cost. This is not one of them. When I got it, I was excited to get it put together, as I have projects waiting on a drill press. Alas, not to be.

Out of the box, I hear rattling sounds in the motor assembly. I shake it, and nothing falls out - so I shrug and go on.

Put item together, lo and behold, the motor does not turn. When powered on, it just hums. No spin, just hum. Powering off and unplugging, I can turn the motor by hand, but no joy when I try to do it with the power. Sigh.

This is made in China, and apparently made by the cheap knockoff elves. Poor quality would not recommend.

I bought this a few months ago. Unfortunately, the chuck has become loose. Which means that now even under the slightest of loads, I cannot get any drilling done. Replacement is about $40. This would made the whole press's worth less than $60.

Ten years ago, you could always count on Hitachi to produce a solid, percision, dependable product, but then they moved their factory to China, where there is NO quality control no matter what Hitachi claims. I have learned the hard way from this drill press and one of their compound miter saws (both of which I have now sold in yard sales), and I will never waste money on a Hitachi product again.
