Benchtop drill press?

Post by PPD » Sun Mar 21, 2021 1:46 pm

In search of a bench top drill press, Do you all recommend one? Looked at all my local stores and they have practically no
inventory so I plan on ordering online.

Thanks in advance!!

I purchased a WEN 4214 12-Inch Variable Speed Drill Press,Orange from Amazon last year for about $270 and am really happy with it.

Looks like it has the sliding middle pulley for varying the speed, neat.

Yes it does, you just have to make sure it is turning as you adjust the speed and everything moves properly. Digital speed reading on the front is helpful too.

That looks like a nice bench top drill press. I have one (a different brand) that I purchased used many years ago. It has been great, and I have it mounted on a cart/table so it is mobile should the need arise.
