Thanks, but no thanks for any reviews or comments regarding this drill press. Did some follow-up myself so I'll report my finding to date since I broke down and purchased this bench top tool. It has everything I need in a drill press, an accurate adjustable table, a hand operated variable speed lever with digital rpm readout, longer boring stroke and a 5/8" chuck. It was well packed and assembly was easy out of the box. I could easily see the quality of the parts as I put them together. For the sale price of 179.99 I feel this was a good buy. Now I will test it by giving it a good workout and will hope I do have to use the 3 year warranty at any time during this period.
