The good news is that it could definitely be worse.
The bad news:
weak - I can stop it by grabbing the chuck with my hand at full speed, and I'm not a ninja...
wobbly - shaft runout is significant and the adjustment is crappe'
sub-par construction - one of the spindle handles did not thread in; I have to do some adjustments
poorly packaged - if I didn't have an air compressor to blow off all the styrofoam beebees i'd still be cleaning it

I bought this drill press at a local Mills Fleet Farm because it was inexpensive and I just didn't have a drill press. I got mine for $80, a steal in my opinion. There's a saying out there that the difference between a good drill press and a cheap drill press is still a lot smaller than the difference between a cheap drill press and no drill press. And it's absolutely true. So based on that, this drill press has a lot of value for it's money. What I really like about this press is the tilting table. You can build a DYI drill press table to extend the dimensions, but to get an angle using a jig is not so easy. This drill press table's tilt feature can come in handy if you need angled holes.

What I don't like about it however is the lack of depth and height. It's an 8 inch press though, and it's advertised that way for a reason. Don't expect to drill into end grain of wood often on this thing. If you are looking for an entry drill press and need to drill into longer pieces, look elsewhere. I can live with it for now and will eventually have a floor mount anyway :)

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a cheap drill press ($80, not what is currently advertised).

Drill slips to right when contact with wood. Anyone else with similar experience. Virtually useless with that slippage from drill site
