First, Amazon customer service. The drill press arrived to me with the column base broken. Actually, there's a problem with the way it's packaged, (see picture) not Amazon's fault and I don't really blame the shipper. However, since I'm on an island in the Caribbean it was quite difficult and expensive to return. Amazon offered a discount to keep the drill press if I could get it repaired here, which I did. Bravo to Amazon.
Now, the drill press. As a retired quality control manager for a very large tool company, I know tools. My initial impression "out of the box" was quite positive, table is nicely machined, painting is well done and general fit and finish is excellent . Assembly was straight forward and very easy. (Note here: I've spoken with many customers over the years who didn't clean the spindle and drill chuck before installing, some even applied oil, then couldn't keep the chuck on the spindle taper. It's very important the the spindle taper and the chuck taper be cleaned with a solvent. Any oil on either taper will result in the chuck not staying on.)
I chucked a piece of drill rod and set the table to "0" using a high quality machinist square. The zero indicator was off very slightly, not enough to affect most jobs. Then checked to see how well the drill rod was parallel to the drill column and was very surprised to discovery it was almost perfect. I have to say I'm impressed.
I checked the runout by placing a drill rod in the chuck, then took a measurement 100mm from the chuck. Indicated runout was 0.009" which is a little more than I'd like to see but not bad considering the cost of this unit. I then measured how much "slop" there was between the quill and the head casting. At zero extension it measured 0.006" and at full extension measured 0.012". That's actually pretty good and better than I've seen on some much more expensive drill presses.
There is no mechanism, such as a lever, to apply tension to the drive belt but that's not a problem, just loosen the two wing nuts and push on the motor to tension then tighten the wing nuts. The drive belt is typical low quality Chinese and is "shedding" inside the belt cover more than I would consider normal however, I don't see this ever becoming a real problem.
I do have some concern with the motor though as it gets quite hot after running for 15 minutes or so under very light load drilling 1/8" holes in pine.
I don't find the laser sight to be particularly useful though. The "X" where the two lights beams cross is rather wide plus in bright light it's very hard to see.
In the end I am quite pleased with this small drill press. It's accurate, well built and sturdy. It's hands down the nicest small drill press I've seen and I believe would please most all users.
It was other reviewers and 3rd party review sites that help me find this tool. It is sold at Lowe's, but I prefer to buy online. For the money, it does feel pretty sturdy. The only plastic parts are the turn knobs. For the price, it feels sturdy. The instructions for putting it together out of the box were not very helpful. But for the most part, you can figure out where things go by using common sense. As other people point out, you have to hammer the collar off the column assembly. That's the most frustrating part, but once you get it, setup takes 20 minutes.
On to more pressing matters (no pun intended). Right away, I wanted to check it out so I grabbed a scrap 2x4 and a 1/4" bit just to test it out. After the tip of the bit ate about 1/8" deep into the wood, it grabbed the wood and the bit stopped. My first thought was to increase the speed. Here's where it got confusing. For the life of me, I couldn't figure out how to take the belt off! The instructions are worthless for this. It says to loosen the tension knobs and pull the motor towards the spindle. Well, it was as far as it could go. I was able to just pull up on the motor spindle and it comes off of the motor and you can then remove the belt and place it where you want. I moved it to the highest point. Then I pushed the motor pulley all the way down. The belt was incredibly not true - it needs to be parallel and level, but it was far from it. I then saw there is a threaded hex screw in the pulley (not in the instructions). Turns out there was a defect in the manufacturing and it was not threaded evenly so the screw was going in slightly sideways. I was able to get a hex wrench and turn it by hand until it worked its way through. Once I did that, I put the motor pulley back on the motor shaft, leveled the belt (I had to place a small block under the motor pulley so it wouldn't slide down as I tried to tighten it), and I then hand turned the hex screw until it tightened to the motor shaft. That, my friends, is the key. The motor pulley must be tightened to the shaft - IT IS NOT THAT WAY OUT OF THE BOX. At least mine wasn't.
Once I finally figured that out (there was a call to Skil's technical support during this process that helped slightly, but not much) I cranked it up again and it turned strong and true. It ate through several pieces of soft and hard wood with multiple bit sizes and types.
Bottom line: given the price point, and once you finally get it going how it should be, it's a strong tool that will work for the periodic use it will probably get. If you need something to run all day every day, get a more professional model. But this is a quality made tool (remember, Skil owns Bosch!) that might be quickly assembled leading to issues out of the box, but it works well once you get it going.
The speed change process requires loosening the motor, placing the belt on the desired pulleys, pulling the motor taut, and fastening it down. I wasn't able to do it without greasing the slides, but after that it works well if not elegantly. Realistically, I expect to do 95% of my drilling at the middle speed setting. The other non-elegant feature is that the lasers are battery operated. I'm not complaining about these two aspects as the basic implementation of these features is reflected in the price.
I did have one problem with the drill, which prompts me to write a review, and that is that one of the lasers was working intermittently or not at all. I called the service number and with no hassle, they offered to send me out a new one when I told them I could install it myself. The laser arrived within a few days and it took me about 15 minutes to install. The installation requires a tool to strip 20-22 gauge wire and some means to complete the connection. I opted for soldering.
I give it a 5 star rating because it seems to be an excellent value, that is, excellent design and quality relative to the cost. I also give it 5 stars because of the service support such that they sent the replacement laser out right away. The excellent service support is why I'm writing this review.
