For precision, this drill press includes an X-Y axis laser and a locking depth-scale.
The B13F's integrated Class III-A laser-beam adjusts along the X-Y axis for pinpoint accuracy when drilling. Easy laser adjustment knobs allow for easy calibration of the drill press.
Additionally, the B13F lets you lock in depths for precise drilling. The depth-scale ring, located at the base of the feed handle, means you can make quick and easy depth adjustments without the need for special tools.
Powerful Induction Motor with Five Speed Settings
The B13F features a 1/3-horsepower induction motor that is powerful enough to drill a wide variety of materials, including wood, aluminum, plastic, mild steel, stainless steel and more. And with five speed settings--680, 1,160, 1,780, 2,380, and 3,000 RPM--you can choose the speed that's best for your material and bit size (the chuck accepts drill bits from 1/16- to 1/2-inch).
Smart Design That's Built to Last
Everything, from the induction motor to the 7-13/16-inch-square cast-iron table, is built for reliable performance. The cleverly designed table moves along a smooth rack-and-pinion gearing system and locks in place for reliable support during operation. An added bonus, the table adjusts 45 degrees to the right or left for angled drilling.
At 67.8 pounds, the B13F is lightweight enough for easy storage and portability. It is backed by Hitachi's two-year warranty.

i have since writing the above had more time with the machine and like it even less. the motor is not at all powerful; when drilling thru 1/4" steel the press easily gets overloaded and stalls out. this makes for tedious and long drilling times; having to go slow and all to keep the thing from stalling out under this modest load.
A year later, mine was on the scrap pile. The motor began emitting bad noises and wouldn't run. Before that, I kept encountering a long series of quality disappointments. I had hoped for more from Hitachi.
For almost exactly the same $129 I paid for this one, I bought a replacement from Harbor Freight which has held up way better.
Also, having an MT2 chuck mount gives you a lot more choices than the JT33 found in lower end drill presses. The HF has an MT2. This press, a JT33.
I bought this item, as I have other Hitachi power tools that are excellent value for the cost. This is not one of them. When I got it, I was excited to get it put together, as I have projects waiting on a drill press. Alas, not to be.
Out of the box, I hear rattling sounds in the motor assembly. I shake it, and nothing falls out - so I shrug and go on.
Put item together, lo and behold, the motor does not turn. When powered on, it just hums. No spin, just hum. Powering off and unplugging, I can turn the motor by hand, but no joy when I try to do it with the power. Sigh.
This is made in China, and apparently made by the cheap knockoff elves. Poor quality would not recommend.
