Grizzly G7948 12 Speed 20" Floor Drill Press
Where to Buy:
Good Drill Press...assuming it arrives intactBy: Anonymous
Overall Rating: 8.7/10
Review: When my new Grizzly Drill Press arrived I noticed it was on its side in the truck with significant dents in the box. Upon removing from box I found some cosmetic damage from the massive head bouncing around against everything else inside the box. Luckily it was only cosmetic damage. When I finally got this behemoth assembled I was actually impressed with how well it ran. It is very smooth there is only a couple thousandths of run out on the spindle. I now fully understand that this is an industrial machine and should be treated as such. It doesn't have all of the features you'll find on a \"home shop\" type drill press but it definitely would prove its worth in an industrial environment. For example it would be far better suited for production-esque tasks that don't involve changing speeds often. If Grizzly could contract some better carriers I would buy this again
Pros: drill is good, heavy and stable, industrial quality, power to boot,
Cons: packaged and shipped poorly.
