Shipping carton very poor 06/24/2019 12:45:10 AM

Skid was too weak to support drill press. Shipping company provided additional skid so it could finish delivery.
Drill press is outstanding. I put it to work almost immediately. Works very good.
Only thing I would recommend would be a better shipping container. I have pictures of the condition the shipping carton as it was received, if you would would like them.

G7947 Drill Press 03/09/2019 7:00:57 PM

Got this drill press in Oct. 2018 along with some other stationary tools and it's flawless!!! I wanted this drill press so I'd have a good table base to mount a drill press table on for my woodworking applications! Very nice too!

This press is exactly what I needed to compliment my shop. It has plenty of power with the 1 HP motor. Very happy with this machine.

Great product, especially at this price! 11/13/2017 8:28:45 PM

This will be used in a Technology & Engineering Education classroom. It cost approximately 1/3 of the price we paid for the machine it is replacing (and that was the price 13 years ago). It is well built, has a more powerful motor than the previous machine, and a larger swing. And it has a safety guard! This will be helpful for use in a middle school classroom.

I bought this Drill Press because I needed a lot of bang for my buck. Drilling large holes through wood and steel among other materials. The G7947 has proven to have the power and precision I need at a good price. Way to go Grizzly!

Perfect with a few modifications 05/25/2017 12:56:38 PM

This is drill press is almost perfect. I upgraded a couple of things so now I really love it.

First was the quill stop. Standard threaded rod with 2 nuts. l couldn't find wrenches that would exactly fit the nuts so it was a pain to adjust.

I bought a 1/2 X 20 threaded rod from Zoro. Only a few dollars. Then I removed the old rod. It doesn't thread in just fits in. I drilled out the hole to 1/2" with a standard metal drill bit. Then I bought 2 1/2" X 20 nuts to secure it. Finally, I bought the quick set quill stop from Grizzly. They have an expensive one and a less expensive one. Works perfectly.

There is a lever on the right side to secure the motor after belt adjustments. I tried to use if for the first time and there was a clang inside. Apparently whatever is supposed to push against the motor fell off the lever. I called Grizzly. I was told there was no way to get in there and fix it and that it wasn't needed anyway. I haven't has any problems with slippage.

I also replaced the standard chuck with a keyless one which is much better and holds just as tight.

Great medium sized drill press 02/05/2017 1:09:59 PM

This was a present given to my dad and he has thoroughly enjoyed this product. It is truly a beginning industrial-strength style drill press I would recommend this to anyone.

Great Product 01/28/2017 8:18:05 PM

This drill press is impressive. It's "Heavy Duty" construction allows usage even in the most demanding applications. I am very pleased with the ease of speed adjustments as well as the ease of table adjustments. The table light is a great feature as well. It allows safer use due to increased visibility while drilling. This machine is with out question, a very high quality product. I am happy to own it !!
