    Very well made compared to my ancient drill of same design.Spline looks much stronger. Accuracy of manufacture is good. Table doesn't tilt at random (giant wrench included). Very well packaged. Light oil coating rubs off with paper towels and doesn't stink. Most parts available.Well known problem with plastic stop. It could work for visual but too weak for a proper stop, it would just break.Belt tension spring too strong. I just removed it. Belt stinks toxic. Plan ahead and buy one to put outside in the sun for a week or more. Size 3L260. The belt from my very old drill is too different.Instructions could use a rewrite. Loosen the motor mount bolts. Grease the spindle housing and rack and pinion, they came with just the overall oil.To remove the chuck get JACOBS 13269 Wedge Set for JT33 and 6JT.

    PERFECT SIZE FOR A PEN TURNER 09/23/2019 2:25:59 PM

    The set-up of this benchtop drill was very easy and it is the perfect size for my pen turning. In fact I have two side-by-side to drill on one and face on the other. It saves allot of changing out that way. It did take a couple months to get it in, but it was worth the wait. I would recommend this drill press for light duty jobs.

    Super Cute ! 03/10/2019 1:23:05 AM

    Bought this for my coffee table.
    Had NO idea i'd use it so much !
    It's now in my workshop instead of getting looked at.
    Had it a rack and pinion, that would have really polished it for me.
    Hope they make a three speed 6" one someday.
    ((For my coffee table.))

    Not so "baby"! 08/29/2018 1:14:07 PM

    This modest sized drill press actually has an 8" throat - almost as big as my other benchtop drill press from Harbor Freight. The Grizzly is far better made than the Harbor Freight and the chuck especially is better. It holds the tiniest drill bits and runs true, unlike the HF model. Yes, they're both made in China but different people must be watching the production process!

    It is nice butit will not do the job that I wanted 07/19/2018 7:46:18 PM

    The space between the motor and the table top will not let my pen blank and holder fit. I would like to send it back but I have trashed the box.

    Outstanding Product 06/09/2018 1:06:40 PM

    This press works great, I use it with a TACO reversible head to tap screw holes in titanium. Better than i expected.

    better quality than I expected for the price 02/12/2018 6:56:11 PM

    As a scroll sawyer, this makes making angled drills on my wood blocks accurate and consistent. The only thing I've added is gluing on several magnets for ease of tool retention (chuck, allen wrenches, etc.)

    Great Xmas gift! 12/29/2017 2:24:36 PM

    Although I own many Grizzly tools, I didn't buy this for myself. I bought this for my son as a Xmas gift. He is a budding woodworker with little room for tools. He's already used this drill press and told me he is pleased with it.

    Drill is working well.
    There is however a lot of run out in the chuck/spindle.
    Is this normal?

    Thank youi

    Awesome little drill press for the tinker / maker type 09/04/2017 6:53:28 PM

    This little drill press is an absolute joy to use. I read other reviews where people complained about noise but the press i received is the most silent drill press I have ever used. There is no visible play in the spindle but I haven't checked with my micro yet. It's drilling holes exactly where I want them. Thanks Grizzly!

    My Baby Grizzly bench drill works very well, the speeds are changed quickly and easely, the pivot table ajusts good, it is ligh and portable, delivery was on time, good overall product for the price. I enjoy greatly the fact that if I need parts, accesories or technical advise and or attention, it is readily available, by phone or internet. I have a parts list and I can actually get them if needed. I think that is very responsible on grizzly's part, and something lacking on many other brands I reviewed.

    I plan to purchase more tools from them in the future.
    Thank You Gabriel J

    I like it. 01/28/2017 1:18:37 AM

    Bought as a gift. Had a chance to assemble it, and everything fit as designed. Looks good, and works well. Movement of the quill is not completely smooth. Not sure why. Reason this didn't get a 5.

    Simple assembly, works great, and more than adequate for my modest, small-drill-press needs.

    Good for small work. 01/25/2017 10:13:15 PM

    Works as it should, I use it every day to drill holes in my knife sheaths, no problems so far, but it is somewhat noisy. Good buy for the money though.
