4. Support roller (part JDP12-25) is deformed and out of cylindrical shape on one end.
When I pay a good money for something, I demand quality and nothing but the quality!!!
I'm going to order replacement for these defective parts from WMH Tool Group, Inc which manufactures these drill presses.
I used this Jet drill press continuously for two days and it has been proven to be a very solid performer, besides these QC flaws listed above. The variety of tasks I have accomplished without a hitch speaks for itself. Drilling precisely positioned holes to install threaded inserts in network conduit pull boxes. Drilling 0.5mm component mounting holes on circuit boards. Drilling precisely spaced and positioned holes on the rifle receiver to install a new rear sight. I could not have accomplished these tasks with any drill presses sold in big box stores locally, especially with that POS Ryobi for which I developed a strong disgust for the rest of my life. Needless to say it was assembled in China as well.Read more ›
Another nice feature is the 'on/off" switch is located on the front of the drill press and to turn it on, you pull it towards you, thus if something should go haywire (like not securing the drilled object down and it gets away from you), you can shut the drill press down with your forehead. Hopefully one would not get themselves in this type of situation, but sometimes even the best of us makes an error, and your head is the closes thing to the switch. The laser light is nice as is the work light. A nice feature of the laser light is that it is powered by internal circuitry (not battery powered), so if you forget and leave the laser light on, you don,t have a battery to replace.
Another nice feature is being able to change drilling speeds with out having to change the belt location on the pulley. There is a handle on the left side that you push or pull to change the speed while the drill press is running and a digital display above the "on/off" switch that shows the RPM. Like I said in the beginning that for the price, this is an outstanding quality product.
Unpacking was easy as the box was falling apart. All the parts were there, but it looked like some items had been pre-assembled - I was thinking maybe they shipped me a "return". Got the whole thing put together though fairly easily.
Problems: 1) The LED light fell out from the socket (it was pre-inserted). Luckily it fell on a rubber mat. 2) the Laser crosshair lights don't work at all. 3) No warranty/registration card.
Jet customer service is non-existent after 5 Mountain. There is no way to leave a message (voice or email). Forget about trying to register your product online.
It seems the only recourse to getting the lasers fixed is to schlep the thing to a service center 20-some miles away.
First and last time I buy a Jet product online. For the price, I think a Craftsman would have been a better deal.
UPDATE: IT'S NOW JULY, AND THE DIGITAL READOUT NO LONGER WORKS. I NOW HAVE TO RETURN THE PRESS AND GET ANOTHER ONE. FORTUNATELY AMAZON AND RUSSELL AT JET IS COOPERATING AND ARRANGING FOR THE SPECIAL HANDLING DUE TO IT'S WEIGHT. IT IS A HASSEL TO ARRANGE TO BE HOME SO THEY CAN PICK IT UP, AND THEN WAIT FOR THE NEW ON TO BE SHIPPED. I OWN OTHER JET TOOLS AND NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM. HOPE THE NEW ONE IS BETTER
UPDATE AGAIN: 2nd one was not much better. I expressed my displeasure to the wmh tool group. Customer service was fantastic. They not only apologized profusely, they are sending me a new press with special attention paid to it and,... get this, they're letting me keep the other one for free. They do need to improve their qc. 5 star customer service, 1 star qc.
