      Any brand made in China, oh wait, they're all made in China. [img]tongue.gif[/img]
      I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.

        If you plan to do alot of heavy gauge metal work, you might want consider a small vertical mill instead. I do lots of metal work and as far as I'm concerned, there are no good drill presses out there unless you step up to factory grade stuff...which costs more than a small milling machine. If you go this route, you can perform exacting drill operations and you get the flexibility to do other operations as well.

            Hey Outrage26 !!! Thanks for your time !!

            You are wright !! That's a REAL solution. I'll go this way. I have a "medium" quality drill but the small vertical mill will solve every thing for me. Is there any brand you suggest for a budget of about US 800?

            Thanks for your help!

              In that price range I think you will find that Harbour Freight is one of few options.

                    This 3-IN-1 METALWORKING MULTIPURPOSE MACHINE WITH MICRO FEED is awesome !! I loved it.

                    It's only a mather of day$ I will buy one for me ( about 5000 to 7000 day$...)

                    The small ones are very nice and that's what I need now. It's nice to know that the big ones exists. Who knows... never say never...

                    Many thanks
