I build small stuff, so using this drill press to pre drill holes had made things much easier. Pre drilling holes for chairs and humidors I make has increased my accuracy. Anyone who has made a humidor for cigars knows the tolerances and clearances have to be very tight to trap the humidity inside. A simple 90 degree corner jig makes pre-drilling hinge holes precise and repeatable for that perfect fit.
I have also used it with a wire brush attachment to remove rust from an old hand plane restoration project. This drill press has plenty of power to throw objects right out of my hands and remove rust from old steel and iron. The oscillating function is great using spindle type sanding attachments.
This drill press is actually very heavy, considering it's size, which is great for stability. I have a very small shop, actually the corner of my garage that I park my car in. All my tools have to be able to be packed away when not in use, which is why I purchased this drill press. I can clamp it to the workbench using a bench dog and undercounted vice. When I'm done, twist the vice and put it away. It does everything I need it to do and I'm very happy with it. I would buy it again if I had to.
