Review by austin neuschafer on August 30th, 2010
this unit has very little power, horrible spindle play (about 3/32") no precision holes or fabrication could be done with this. it is claimed to have 1/3hp, I have a 1/2hp drill press that replaced this that seems much much more powerful. either my other one(non harbour freight)is under claimed or this is over rated with how much hp it has.

rusts real quicky, the speeds are all high, no slower speeds for cutting wider holes. I used this once or twiced and told my brother inlaw that he could have it cause it wasn't worth the valuable limited space when I moved. this same drill press is sold under many different labels such as craftsman etc, though all perform equally poor, only difference is the price
