The service tech came by the shop the other day (13 months later) with a replacement drill press from Powermatic. It is the same model but now the pulleys have been chromed to reduce friction. Started it up and it runs great have used it for about 5 hours and it is working properly.
Thank you Powermatic for the replacement.
You will definitely want a second pair of hands, but if you are in a rush like I was, here is a trick: Attach the column to the base and then cut away the edge of the styrofoam around the base of the motor assembly. Lay the base/column on it's side and engage into the housing and TIGHTEN it!!! The, use a chain host to slowly lift the unit into the upright position (see attached picture)
- Quiet operation.
- Ease of changing speeds.
- Well Built.
- Integrated light
What I would like to see improve or added feature:
-Depth stops are OK, nothing new here, I would have liked either a digital readout or at least a adjustable depth readout like the delta
-Better chuck, I already upgraded mine.
What I really did not like:
THE FENCE AS TO BE A JOKE!
Con: quality could be higher. Base needs to be more beefier. No power switch, so the RPM readout is always on. The travel for the RPM wheel is way too long, you need to turn like a thousand turns from 250 to 3000. the laser on the left side is hazy,doesn't focus right. the table lock is terrible, only lock at 0 degree position,
Pro: variable speed, 6 inch quill travel. Looks cool. Light is bright
