Well went down to big blue Lowes and pulled the trigger on this DP. Also went to post office and grabbed me up a 10% off card. So far all is good. Seems like a decent strong DP. Went together very easy. So far Im a happy camper!! |

Yeah it has the dapth gauge. Its a full 4 inches as well. Which is another reason I like it. Plus the laser guide 16 speed, 1 hp etc..etc.. |

I like the rectangular table my Jet has. |
For wood, most of the pieces to be drilled are rectangles.
Better for clamping.
For that matter, every drill press needs a bigger table.
From that Lowe's picture, I can't tell if it has the depth gauge.
The pictures on craigslist are no better -- there could be a depth gauge but the pic is at the wrong angle.
You expect a drill press has handles; why take a picture with that as the featured item?

yeah Nothing in the Pawn shops so far. But I did buy a Rigid planer and a 12" dewalt compound miter (705) and got huge deals.. |

|mgmine||1hp is more than enough. Before you buy it though check out Craigs list. You might find a better one for a lot less.|

|Red Stick||I got one to replace an old bench top. It is not as nice as the much more expensive ones but is a huge improvement for me. I don't regret buying it.|
