However, I was a bit disappointed and I did ultimately choose to return my model.
Buyers should be advised that the picture shown is NOT the press with its current depth gauge. The newer version is designed in the following manner. A plastic "chip guard" fits onto the shaft that holds the chuck. It's made of plastic. This plastic piece holds a short threaded rod with several nuts used to mark stopping points. As the shaft holding the chuck lowers, so too does the threaded rod. When a screw is threaded down the rod, lowering the chuck and thus the threaded rod rests against a stop. So far so good. Really the only problem with the design is that the chip guard plastic collar that holds the threaded rod is extremely flimsy. One reviewer notes breaking his very early. While it's fine that it costs one dollar to replace, I personally don't want to fear breaking my tools as part of normal use. My chip guard arrived broken.
The Skil 3320 is miles ahead of this Grizzly model's depth gauge. The Skil model has an adjustable collar that sits on the same shaft as the three-spoked handles used to lower the chuck. The collar rotates and a set screw sets your depth. It's all once piece, all integrated into the shaft. There is absolutely no way it can break loose.
My second point is associated with the deck. The Skil model has a handle used to loosen the deck, just like this model has. In addition, however, the Skil model has a handle which very smoothly adjusts the height of the deck. With the Grizzly model, you loosen the handle with one hand, position the deck with the other, and tighten the handle all in one awkward motion.Read more ›
is silent and meets its specification. Just a few tips. I used 4 1/2 inch bolts for the base. Before bolting the column to the base, clean, and try inserting into the headstock. You will note a column stop about 2 1/4 inches inside the headstock. When you are satisified that the column will easily move inside the headstock, place a piece of insulating tape about 2 1/4 inch from top of column. Now bolt the column to base. Next, the table support, mine was slightly rough between the clamping space. Used a fine file. table support then easily slides on the column. Now slide table support on column, then the headstock, the tape will indicate when headstock is fitted correctly.
I fitted a 4" vice to the table support, with one side bolted to the table, using 1 1/2 bolts. It works for me. Support lock handle, mine is fitted to the left hand side!!!!!!
I tapped the chuck using a mallet. The drilling return spring is OK. I did not change the drill depth stops.
Finally, beware, the overall height is 22", but the pulley safety cover requires a further 5 inches.
Easily a five star plus for the product, delivery and cost.
These Amazon pictures show the old (better) model. The Grizzly website shows the new version as well as the picture I downloaded
