    I have the Ryobi and it has done me well. I wouldn't mind an upgrade now though. I think it is an excellent starting drill press.

    I got a nice sturdy 12 speed/16mm chuck press similar to the carbatec model from somebody in the trading post for $100. It goes very well and should keep going for a long time yet. I'd go second hand in your position.

    The other day I described to my daughter how to find something in the garage by saying "It's right near my big saw". A few minutes later she came back to ask: "Do you mean the black one, the green one, or the blue one?".

    I got a woodman from WWWH for $220

    I believe they are still for sale around that price, maybe $20 more, the website price is wrong i believe.

    Ring them up tomorrow and check.

    Stuart gives a good review of it including its limitations.

    Here is mine all setup

    I did have a problem when installing the chuck, put a hole through the table. So if you buy one use a block of wood to spread the load when pushing down to install the chuck!

    Chucks are usually knocked on with block of wood, jaws opened all the way so the don't protrude never press fit using the table. Saying that it should have been stronger than that pellcorp
    Being down is the low side of being up it shows the road ahead is a steep climb but at the top the view is always special. Then we just coast along till we hit the trough again. Sometimes when coasting we pick up speed and the steep climbs pass by like your on a plain.

    The instructions are right in the manual to press down on the table, I thought it was weird too. I pressed really hard having never had a drill press did not know any different!

    Perhaps its a cheap table. Anyway the second time I used a block of wood.

    In that case return the table and demand a new one use there instructions to do so.

    It's going to sound silly but I like the hole. It makes it easier to get at the drill bits when I am removing them I think I will leave it as is. I plan on putting a melamine table over top anyway.

    Default Don't forget the Hitachi

    Harrison, have a look at the posts here and here before deciding. The Hitachi is quite good, but the table does not lend itself to fitting a timber drill table quickly and easily

    regards,
    Jill

    I would go the carbatec if you have the bench space. I just killed my Ryobi trying to cut some rossettes . The Ryobi served me well but has now been semi-retired to a permanent spindle sanding function. Now that I have the Carbatec I know what I have been missing....power, accuracy, speed range, drilling capacity to name a few. Good luck with your choice.

    They do have bench mounted of the same brand. They are I think $20 cheaper or something.

    This Ryobi is more similer to the Carba-Tec one.

    Ryobi - 12 Speed Bench Drill

    I got one at the start of the year. For $200 (think prices have gone up now) it's not bad.
