After looking and compareing I decided to buy Powertec and it had only one review of 5 *****, now it has two. Delivery was fast, was knocked around a bit but the packing took the abuse. Went together easy and all the parts and tools were in the box. Looks very nice, works very well and quite. Spindel and chuck, the part that turns, turns TRUE, through the whole leangh of the plunge. No vibration or wobble. I agree with the other review on this press. Small, lite weight, 42lbs and does the job. I drilled 1/4" plate steel with a 1/4' bit with no trouble. Remember, Feed and Speed are KEY for a good outcome. Very happy with this unit.

I trolled through Craigslist for a couple of weeks, trying to find a benchtop drill press, for a reasonable price. Everyone wanted near-new prices, for their used equipment, with few features, and unknown quality. I shopped local tool supply stores, but nearly all such benchtop units only had 1/4 (0.25), or 1/3 (0.33) HP, at best. This unit has 2/5, or 4/10, or 0.4 HP -- just shy of 1/2 (0.5) HP! It will drill wood, soft metals such as aluminum and brass, stainless steel, iron, and even medium carbon steel.

Adjusting the speed by changing the drive belt on the pulleys, is easy, and straightforward (speed is determined by material you wish to drill: the chart is listed inside the door on top, which is opened to adjust the belts, and the speed). Adjusting the belt tension with the motor, is simple. Minimal assembly is required, out of the box (took me less than 30 minutes). It runs smoothly, drills accurately, and it is simple to use.

Be certain to bolt this unit to your workbench! It weighs around 50 lbs, and if it fell off of your bench, you will be lucky if the only thing that breaks is your drill! It is solidly constructed. I would buy another product from this vendor, and this manufacturer, without hesitation. Cheers!

First, let's be clear: This is not a precision machine made of hand-jeweled parts and precision machined castings.

However, it does have the most power of any cheap drill press anywhere near this price, so it puts pretty good holes in stuff. I regularly run 3/8" holes through 2-3" aluminum billets with this press with cheap multi-pack drill bits. And, if you take your time and tram, shim, and calibrate it, it will do some pretty accurate work.

If all you're doing is punching holes in 2x4s you probably don't have to bother, but take the time to align it properly with some dial indicators and some pop can shims, you will be surprised at the accuracy you can get out of this thing.

There are tons of instructions and tutorials for adjusting drill presses and other machine tools - just search for "Tramming a drill press" or "Squaring a drill press" and hunt around for an explanation with plenty of pictures. It doesn't involve much except a carpenter's square to make sure the quill (the thing that moves up and down and holds the drill bits) is square either to the workbench or the drill press table, depending on which one you choose. If it's not square, you add shims to the appropriate side, tighten the bolts, and measure again.

Also be sure to take the time to set the belt to the right ratio for each job. For those who are unfamiliar with belt driven machine tools, this press doesn't have a speed adjustment knob like a Dremel tool or a milling machine - the motor and the tool head are connected by a set of pulleys and a rubber belt. You change the speed of the drill by changing the belt's position on the pulleys. There is a helpful table permanently attached to the machine on an engraved metal plate that will give you an idea of what speeds to use with what materials.

For only the $79.99 plus shipping I paid for it, this is a very good performer. The main thing is that there is no wobble--which is the best attribute to have when drilling small holes with precision.

I use this a bit for small things to build guitars. I only drill wood with it and no pieces are thicker than 1". Everything in line with the neck from the headstock to the bridge needs to be extremely accurate and this does the job pretty well. I couldn't go cheap on the bandsaw or router, because of the amount of use they get. So I was forced to look for a very affordable drill press and buy hand tools for some things that could be machined.

The good: Holes are true, easy to change belt settings, and is compact.

The bad: Had a lot of trouble with getting the spindle to go back up, but fixed it. The depth gauge sucks.

The Ugly: Seems to lose a lot of torque at the lowest end of the travel. Locks up, even on MDF.

I'd recommend it overall for the price, but if my budget had allowed, I would have bought something else.

I looked at a few different mini drill presses on the market, and ended up buying this one based on price and product reviews. My take is all these presses are probably made in the same factory in China. The manufacturing is ok to poor, but you get what you pay for. The packaging is generally poor to abhorrent. The first one I received was obviously not new (as ordered), and had either been damaged in shipping before or during transport to me. It was missing parts (drill chuck) and had extra parts (some mounting bolts). The motor had a bent cowl and wouldn't run.
The second press received wasn't damaged. Neither press matches the description exactly- both lacked a light switch on the side (no big deal to me), and both were labelled "model 800" rather than "model 801". It is what it is and I'd buy it again for this price. Kind of a hassle trying to buy these heavy tools through mail order, as the packaging is insufficient and the shippers are generally very rough on heavy parcels.
