I ordered on Wednesday and chose 1 day delivery for $11.99 and got it mid-day Thursday. Box was in great shape. Some of the parts that have bare metal showing are greased to prevent rust during storage. Some alcohol and a rag takes care of removing it very quickly. Wen suggests a little wax on those parts to prevent future rust. It seems like a very solid little drill press especially for the price. There were a few problems:

1. The belt cover is sheet metal and was a little warped.
2. 2 of the 3 screws holding the laser unit on were loose and when I tightened them, I discovered that one hole was stripped.
3. The pulleys needed to be cleaned as they had metal filings in the V grooves.
4. The laser beams are adjusted by loosening the screws on the sides and turning the brass barrels by hand. The barrels are rather tight so it is a little tricky getting them aligned exactly if you are a perfectionist as I am. Another problem is that the beams are thicker than they should be. I solved that problem by setting mine so that the point at which the back edge of the beams intersect is the center point of the bit contact.

I strongly suggest that you invest in a 4" drill press vice (search Amazon - they have quite a few and a cheap one should be just fine). DON'T try to hold your work with your hands. I once nearly had part of one fingertip taken off doing that. Also, ALWAYS have the press bolted or clamped to the work bench - this will prevent damage to the press, your work and YOU.

Overall, I am satisfied with this little tool, especially for the price.

Ruined $100 of material. No level of precision.drill bit wobbled, was off center. Rotating the bit the tip didn't even stay in the same spot.
second depth guide was so cheesy and inaccurate. A little chunk of tin that shook when operating.
ok if you just need holes but otherwise a waste of money.

Machine is what it was meant to perform. It is not a high level wood shop precision drill but did not expect it to be. Shipped very promptly and assembled easily.

I love it. It's my first drill press and the only issue I've found with it after a year of use is that the laser is slightly off.

Wow, where to begin.

The box arrived damaged and most of the styrofoam packing was broken (wasn't double boxed). There was a coating of foul smelling black grease on the two bases and the support column. In fact there was so much grease that the styrofoam was discolored and some of it had leaked into the cardboard box and also onto the instruction manual.

My hands were black just, assembling the thing.

The machining on the bases was poor quality with some depressions and scratches.

The power cord had some odd white film or paint on it.

The plastic knob that lifts the top cover over the belt wasn't even tightened, it was almost loose and falling off.

The cover itself when closed was not flush with the bottom portion i.e. the gap was uneven.

Most importantly, there was one screw missing for attaching the main body to the support column.

Because of the above I didn't even get to try the drill press. Possibly it would have been unsafe to operate with only 2 of 3 attachment screws installed.

What a waste of time. Don't be fooled by the nice looking photo with that spiffy red laser. What you actually get is a shabby, dirty product.
