    A Great Litttle Drill Press, February 4, 2004

    The press was well packaged and undamaged. The instruction and assembly manual did not completely match the drill press I received. I guess, if you can’t figure out how to put it together, you shouldn’t be using it anyway. I have a small shop. Everything is on casters. For my shop, it’s perfect. Easy to operate, change drill speeds and engage the oscillating feature. It comes with a set of sanding drums. The mounting hardware doesn’t hold on to the sanding drum very well, but it works. I added a 3/4″ plywood deck to the adjustable platform for sanding and drilling larger stock. This helps in keeping your stock square to the drill or sanding drum. The oscillating feature works well, but you need to be careful how much pressure you place on the object you are sanding to keep from damaging the mechanism. Once you figure out the proper pressure on the sanding drum, the results are quite good. The extra money you pay for all the features is worth it.

    Poorly executed details, July 26, 2004

    Seems like a reasonable piece of equipment, but it was frustrating to setup and a few of the details seem to be poorly thought out.

    * The manual omits important details and seems to refer to a earlier revision of the product.

    * The oscillating feature seems cool, but they recommend that you remove the handles for safety reasons. This is big enough inconvenience, that I may not use that feature much.

    * One of the nuts on the idler pulley was loose. It wouldn’t drill through anything substantial until that was tightened.

    * While the output shaft is quite true, the outside of the chuck appears to be slightly wobbly in operation. While it doesn’t appear to affect the operation, it doesn’t inspire confidence, either.

    * The base looks particularly crude in its machining. It isn’t a big issue, it just makes the drill press look cheap.

    Some good safety features are the spring chuck key and the switch on the belt door.

    I don’t know why Amazon refers to this as a H0626. The box and manual called it a model W1668.

    The box was labeled with this title, however after unpacking the numerous pieces of broken packing, scattered and damaged parts (yet to be replaced..on a new drill), I saw a different picture. As other reviews have noted, the manual is way out of date and omits details. The setup was basic, but the assembly took longer than it should have because of the confusion. The fit and finish are crude..seems like paint slopped on pot metal. A lot of minor things such as lack of washers for bolt on painted surfaces connections, over tolerance collar ring which will not square itself to the column. Most aggravating thing is when you go out of oscillating mode you have to manually turn the oscilating pulley until the chuck reaches zero again at the head, otherwise, your depth adjustment will be off. To sum up, nice idea, poor engineering, lousy packaging, medicre customer service. Save yourself the headaches and go elsewhere.

    @TheLumberjackass Yes Festool is expensive, but damn they make money for
    me. And I have never owned a brand of power tools that has been totally
    free of service problems like Festool. I only wish I would have know about
    Festool sooner in my woodworking career.

    @scoobydog411 I would like to see your work bench. Email me a picture or
    post it on my facebook page. I always like to see what woodworkers build
    for themselves.
