At a Glance


Ideal for the professional workshop, the Jet 354169 JDP-17MF 16-1/2-inch drill press spins bits up to 5/8 of an inch with 16 speeds from 200 to 3,630 rpm. A 3/4-horsepower induction motor drives the belts, and it can run off either 115-volt outlets (for which it comes prewired) or 230-volt sources. The large 13-3/4-inch worktable glides easily with rack-and-pinion adjustment and tilts 45 degrees right or left to accommodate your needs. A hinged metal belt-and-pulley cover provides easy access to the motor mount, allowing for rapid spindle speed changes.

To personalize the press for your comfort and peace of mind, you can adjust the tension on the spindle return spring, as well as lock out the start button to protect others in your absence. The table's X pattern mounting grooves also allow you to mount a fence when the table is in reverse position. A built-in work light (bulb not included) provides additional visibility of your work space.

This is the second Jet drill press I have owned. The first had the same problem as the second and Jet replaced it free of charge, even though out of warranty. I have owned this drill press for just over two years now and it is used but not abused. The problem is that after using the depth stop, as is the case with a good majority of holes the spindle kicks over to the side of the drill press that the stop is mounted on. This has a tendency of causing drill walk as well as an out of round condition of the hole itself. After grabbing and shaking the quill a great amount of play is noticable from just hand force. This would indicate worn bearings. The fact that the first drill press had the same defect as this one tells me that Jet knows it has a problem but evidentally isn't that concerned about fixing it. I have owned and still do own other Jet tools but this drill press is the worst. Vibration and noise are other built in features you might encounter. I will replace it soon and doubt that the new one will have the Jet logo on it. Take a second look it might be worth your while.

Since there is no 4.75 star choice available, I'll round the Jet 17MF up to 5 stars. While it has some issues, overall I like it a lot! I got tired of patching up my old Dunlap drill press, so I figured I would treat myself to a newer & larger unit. I did a lot of research, focusing on the Delta, Shop Fox, Grizzly, & Powermatic floor units in the 17" range. I was able to download the manual for all of them, and judging by the exploded diagrams and parts list, they all seem to be clones, with slight differences (i.e. type of depth stop, pulley cover, style of on/off switch, etc.).
My usage will be 80% metal fabrication, & 20% wood.
The drill press was delivered in one package, about 5 feet long, 2.5 feet wide, 16" high & 210+ pounds. Large, but not unmanageable for most people. There is a top and bottom block of Styrofoam, each molded to house the parts securely. All parts were complete & undamaged. Assembly took less than half an hour. As mentioned in other reviews, the head piece is quite heavy, so get help sliding it onto the column. Once assembled, the drill press is very stable on the floor. I cleaned the chuck, arbor, and spindle with alcohol, and there was no problem with the chuck falling out as others described.
Evidently, Jet has listened to the complaints of others, because it now includes a plastic holder for the chuck key which is mounted near the spindle return spring, and works well. The light is an excellent feature, and is operated via a separate switch that glows when in the on position. The separate switch lets you illuminate your work during setup without the chuck spinning. I used a ceiling fan bulb since they have a stronger filament and is less sensitive to vibration. I saw no problem with the socket as others described.
Now the issues.

After finally deciding to make the agonizing choice to abandon Delta as my brand of choice because of declining quality, I purchased this drill press along with 2 other Jet tools. here are my opinions of this tool. On the plus side: 1. the castings seem to be high quality and substantial. 2. I found the packaging to be excellent. 3. Assembly went without a hitch. 4. It's nice to have a built-in light. 5. 16 speeds: more than I'll probably ever use. On the minus side 1. My unit does have excessive vibration at certain speeds. 2. The table height locking handle is too small to get enough torque to lock the table easily. 3. The belt cover does make a certain amount of noise at certain speeds. While it is annoying, these problems are easily fixed. I replaced the stock belts with some PowerTwist v-belts and it virtually eliminated all vibration and noise. I think we should all petition manufacturers to inclued PowerTwists on all belt driven tools. Some weather stripping around the belt cover takes care of that noise. I plan to make a new height lock. (easy if you have access to a machine shop). Overall this is a good drill press for woodworking.

Ordered from ... (first time for large item), took about a week to arrive via FedEx Freight. Missed first delivery, called local FedEx and arranged to have the driver call me at work to meet him at home. Arrived in one box horizontally placed on a small pallet, FedEx truck had a liftgate and pallet jack, simply wheeled the pallet into the garage. Assembly took less than one hour by myself. I don't think you can seat the chuck and arbor well enough following the instructions, fell immediately out and used a block of wood and hammer to seat it. Other than that, no assembly problems. Minor vibrations when running, only thing that makes noise is the belt cover, same as reported by others. I have no facility to measure runout, test holes looked fine. The rack that the table rides on is bowed, only affixes to the shaft at the top and bottom, will contact Jet about this as I noticed this same problem described by another reviewer. Its heavy once put together, will consider a mobile base. Other than the rack, fit and finish is good. Am concerned about the lack of a chuck key holder, don't want to lose the chuck key, I'll have to keep it somewhere real obvious. Did a lot of research before buying this, main competition was similar Delta model, this is my first Jet tool and am overall satisfied. Can't believe that they could ship this and another item for [$$$]. Would order from ... again for large items and definitely will consider Jet for bandsaw and jointer wishes.
Update: Received a new rack from Jet in less than a week after talking to customer service. Installed the new rack with no problems, but did have to remove the head. I found it difficult to install the lightbulb in its socket, the socket is somewhat flexible in its mounting so had to bend it a bit to get the lightbulb in.
