Shop Fox W1668 3/4 HP 13-Inch Bench-Top Oscillating Drill Press

Just like it's little brother, this 12-speed drill press doubles as an oscillating sander that can be used for efficient contour sanding. With more speeds, more power and more capacity this machine becomes an effective tool for heavier use. The table has a clearance hole for use while sanding. This clever design incorporates a dust collection port so your sanding jobs are less messy. With a 3/4-inch drilling capacity in steel you'll be able to tackle most any drilling job as well.

Tilting Table for Versatility of Applications

The W1668 offers the ability to tilt the table 90-degrees to both the left and right. You can adjust the table height and tilt to accommodate for workpiece height or achieve special drilling or sanding angles. You can also move the table out of the way and use the drill press base as a table for drilling or sanding.

Oscillating Feature for Sanding Operation

One of the great features of the Model W1668 13-1/4-inch Oscillating Drill Press is its sanding capability. The drill press can be converted from drilling operations to sanding operations in a matter of seconds with just a few tool-free steps. Oscillation reduces heat build up and leaves a smooth finish when sanding. This drill press includes a 3-piece spindle sander drum kit with a mandrel and 80 grit sanding paper to fit the 1-Inch, 1-1/2-Inch and 2-Inch drums.

Broad Selection

Shop Fox offers a broad assortment of drill presses to suit every need - from small hobby shops to professional machine shop. Our unique oscillating models provide the convenience of two machines in half the space, our radial drill presses offer unmatched versatility. For the best selection of features, performance and value, look no further than Shop Fox.

Disassembled, packed up the 100 lbs of parts and returned it.

The Shop Fox bench top drill press is robustly built (meaning heavy!).

I was very happy with that purchase with only finish being a negative.

The press was well packaged and undamaged. The instruction and assembly manual did not completely match the drill press I received. I guess, if you can't figure out how to put it together, you shouldn't be using it anyway. I have a small shop. Everything is on casters. For my shop, it's perfect. Easy to operate, change drill speeds and engage the oscillating feature. It comes with a set of sanding drums. The mounting hardware doesn't hold on to the sanding drum very well, but it works. I added a 3/4" plywood deck to the adjustable platform for sanding and drilling larger stock. This helps in keeping your stock square to the drill or sanding drum. The oscillating feature works well, but you need to be careful how much pressure you place on the object you are sanding to keep from damaging the mechanism. Once you figure out the proper pressure on the sanding drum, the results are quite good. The extra money you pay for all the features is worth it.

The box was labeled with this title, however after unpacking the numerous pieces of broken packing, scattered and damaged parts (yet to be replaced..on a new drill), I saw a different picture. As other reviews have noted, the manual is way out of date and omits details. The setup was basic, but the assembly took longer than it should have because of the confusion. The fit and finish are crude..seems like paint slopped on pot metal. A lot of minor things such as lack of washers for bolt on painted surfaces connections, over tolerance collar ring which will not square itself to the column. Most aggravating thing is when you go out of oscillating mode you have to manually turn the oscilating pulley until the chuck reaches zero again at the head, otherwise, your depth adjustment will be off. To sum up, nice idea, poor engineering, lousy packaging, medicre customer service. Save yourself the headaches and go elsewhere.

Seems like a reasonable piece of equipment, but it was frustrating to setup and a few of the details seem to be poorly thought out.

* The manual omits important details and seems to refer to a earlier revision of the product.

* The oscillating feature seems cool, but they recommend that you remove the handles for safety reasons. This is big enough inconvenience, that I may not use that feature much.

* One of the nuts on the idler pulley was loose. It wouldn't drill through anything substantial until that was tightened.

* While the output shaft is quite true, the outside of the chuck appears to be slightly wobbly in operation. While it doesn't appear to affect the operation, it doesn't inspire confidence, either.

* The base looks particularly crude in its machining. It isn't a big issue, it just makes the drill press look cheap.

Some good safety features are the spring chuck key and the switch on the belt door.

I don't know why Amazon refers to this as a H0626. The box and manual called it a model W1668.

I looked at over a hundred New and used Drill Press's on line and in person.
Finding the right one for my budget at the time was difficult, Under $300.00 to my door.
I had just bought a older 1940's Craftsman that seem alright in the noisy driveway that I heard it run in. When I got it home I could hear that some bearings were worn & saw the wobble when I drilled into some steel.
Goodbye $200.00 for a machine that needs some work that I don't know how or have the time to fix.

I have a full time Knife making and Sharpening biz. Especially with all the holes I drill to light up my knife handles. This Shop fox machine real works well with 5/32" Carbide bits to drill in 1/8" & 1/4" thick non-heat treated S30V and 440C Stainless Steels, Both of witch get gummy and soft when hot.

I am happy with the adjustments/Layout so far, The machine took about half an hour to setup. Straight forward easy directions were provided. Some reported trouble changing speeds?, I had none.
I haven't used the oscillating sander feature, And I think it would put a lot of stress on the Quill.
I have other machines that were made for contour sanding.

The motor has plenty of power and for the price of this machine, I would recommend it to any and all people in the one step above entry level drill Press Market.

A work light is about the only thing I would add.

I replaced a floor radial head drill press with this one. Since I rarely (one time) needed the versatility of a floor model, the bench model seemed more to my style.

Earlier in the year, I purchased a Shop Fox sanding station which I reviewed here. I was very happy with that purchase with only finish being a negative.

If you compare this model to a Powermatic, you'll be dissapointed, but I'm very happy with it. It's got more than enough power for me at 3/4 HP and I've found the table to be very easy to adjust (not so on the previous press). It does support more speeds than I need, but normally leave it set at one for woodworking anyway. I'm familiar with the depth adjustment system as my previous one was Grizzly and these two companies are joined at the hip.

I didn't buy it for the oscilating feature, but I give kudos to the deisgn engineer. It works perfectly well, but as other reviewers have said, it's not a sander to use great pressure against. It also takes a little set up to get the drums assembled for use. A nice feature is that there is a cutout in the table for the largest drum and spacers to take up room for the smaller ones. It also contains a dust collecting feature which works better than I thought it would.

So far, I've used this for wood and metal and am happy with it. Again, it's not a Powermatic but I didn't pay that price either. The finish is typical roughness of Shop Fox, but in operation, it works as well and accurately as "higher" quality machines I've used. I'd make the same decision tomorrow.
