I'm sorry to say that this is the ONLY product that I have purchased from Grizzly that I wasn't elated with. As an oscillating drum sander, it's too much of a bother to switch it back and forth from sanding to drill press. As a bench top drill press, it's less than average. It's hard to get enough tension on the motor to keep the belts from slipping on the sheaves. Small to average size holes in WOOD bore ok, but tend to slip belts under harsher conditions. In metal, stay under 3/8" with tight belts and you're ok, any larger and you need a different machine (or a lot of patience). With any dual purpose machine you expect their to be a trade off, this time the trade-off just isn't worth it. Buy a good drill press and a good oscillating drum sander and you'll be much happier. Needs a larger motor. Even using the sanding drums with the unit set up as a drill press is disappointing with larger new sanding drums. If you just HAVE to have this combo unit because of space constraints or light use, maybe you'd find the trade-offs acceptable.
