Given the number of bearings used in this drill press It is a very well engineered, solid and stable machine with almost zero runout. Comparing this Jet bench top drill press to that rattling POS 12" Ryobi, which I bought initially and returned right away, is like comparing a Rolls-Royce and Ugo. However, given that sad fact that this Jet drill press was assembled in China, and in my professional experience Chinese generally don't give a damn about quality, my new drill press came with the following flaws:

1. Depth gauge lock collar (part JDP12-35) was broken and its pan head screw and hex nut were missing.
2. Tilt scale indicator (part JDP12-135) was cracked.
3. Left laser (part JDP12-47) has a beam three times wider than the right one.
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.

For the price, this is a very high quality drill press. For my use it is perfect. I really like the safety feature of the chuck key which prevents one from accidentally leaving the chuck key in the chuck. It has a spring loaded tip that requires you to keep an inward pressure on the key while tightening or loosening the chuck. As soon as you no longer apply inward pressure on the key, it pushes it self out of the chuck keeping it in your hand. Very nice safety feature.

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.

Supposedly this item was shipped factory direct. The box it arrived in looked like it had been in WW2 - I almost told the UPS guy that I didn't want to accept delivery. Then I figured, what can possibly be wrong?

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.

Drill press arrived. Has low speed runout. Called the company and now they tell me I have to haul the thing 30 miles to the nearest aurthorized Jet repair, to have them look at it.

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.
