  • Bench top drill press

    I am about to purchase either a Craftsman 12" 21914 or a Delta 12" DP300L---I have done some research on both of these and not sure which one to get---I like the fact that the delta is a tad lighter as I will be moving it about my very small workshop area--does anyone have any input into my dilemma??

    I looked at both of those and passed on both in favor of the Harbor Freight 38142 on sale for $144. I'm usually justifiably cautious about HF items, but this one has been surprisingly good...quiet, smooth, powerful, decent quill travel, excellent runout. It's hard to imagine getting more DP without spending 3x the money. HF is running a 20% coupon through Sunday.
