I put a lot of research into this purchase and discovered the following: No matter which brand of drill press you research, there seems to be a lot of negative reviews for the drills. Even the old standards, like Delta, JET and Craftsman have tons of negative reviews. The problem is that just about all power tools these days are made in the same Asian factories and subject to the same quality control issues. With that in mind, it really doesn't make sense to pay more for one Chinese drill press than another. All I do is look for the tool with the least amount of one, two and three star reviews, and buy it. When I researched drill presses, this Grizzly had the least amount of negative reviews and the most features at the best price.
My only complaint about this drill press is that there is a small amount of spindle wobble. It's just enough to see with your eye, but isn't bad enough to cause me any concern since I'm not using this for precision work. A year ago, I bought five brands of hand drills and they all had some runout, so I assume it's the new lower standard in power drills. It makes me wonder what machinists do when they need to drill very precise, small holes.
I've used this drill press to drill holes as large 7/16" in 1/2" steel plate, and cut holes in aluminum and 14 gauge steel (with a hole saw) as large as three inches; and of course any kind of wood drilling is no challenge for this Grizzly.
The biggest negative of this drill press is also one of its biggest positives... it's very heavy duty. According to the product information, it weighs 160lbs. I haven't weighed mine, but this thing isn't exactly something you want to be moving around all the time. Mine has set exactly where I placed it three years ago, and I have no intention of moving it if I don't need to.
the bed is difficult if not impossible to attach drill press vices to, even if they are made by the same manufacturer.
it does, however, drill somewhat straight holes even wiyh the spindle wobble which is the only reason I've given it 3 stars.
First there is runout (wobble) , not a huge problem for woodworking nut I would not recomend this for metal working. I have tried to fix it by removing , cleaning then reinstalling the chuck assembly but was not successful in solving the problem. Any suggestions would be greatly helpful.
Second, the table has no through holes to mount items. The T slot channels are also very unevenly milled but which I managed to use to mount a larger accessory table. Would have been nice if they were smooth.
Thirdly, the three plunge handles are too long and interfere with my accessory table, might have to shorten them.
Overall I am satisfied with this machine but it sure could be improved, and it very much needs improvement! I was not expecting a great machine for the money I paid and it met my expectations. So quality is so so. Hope this helps.
