This innovative drill press came about as a personal project of the President of Grizzly Industrial. He wanted the convenience of a gearhead drill press with variable speed, combined with a cross-slide table with longitudinal and vertical power feed. He also sought features like a digital spindle speed readout, long spindle throw, coarse and fine downfeed controls, and forward/reversing ability.

This had not been done before, so several meetings were held with engineers, special parts were made, and voila! We had a variable-speed gearhead drill press with X- and Z-axis table powerfeed, utilizing a 3-phase motor that runs on single-phase power!

This drill press started as a personal project for the President's home workshop, but after appreciating its unique features more and more, he made it available to the public for those also in search of a truly high-end, fully-loaded drill press.

Excellent Drill Press, and used for Annular Cutters, too. 01/10/2019 5:18:24 PM

Read the nice comment on the T26685 Moly-D Multi-Function Machine Oil - ISO 32, 1 Gallon (used for the Drill Press referenced).

Good but motorized table height stopped working 06/21/2017 11:12:51 AM

The G0808 is a good drill press, however the motor (or gearing) to the table height adjustment stopped working within a few weeks of arrival. Customer Service has been helpful and is willing to take back/replace parts. However we are in production and have not had the time to disassemble the whole assembly to determine exactly what part is broken or to return things. Hence the rating for now, which would otherwise have been higher
