Not Impressed
Over all poor quality. Parts are loose fitting. Drive belt rubbed on top cover slowing down machine, cutting groove into cover and wearing down belt. One laser dims and brightens on its own and LED light functions sporadically.

Great Little Drill Press
I like JET products and this little drill presswas perfect for my do-it-youself projects. [...] It assembledwithout any problems and worked the first time.It was well worth the fifty dollars more over asimular Delta model.

Good drill for the cost
Some of the parts are cheaply made and will not stand up to a lot of use. The Motor and chuck look very good. The laser is easy to adjust. Most of the poor quality is in the cast iron parts. The factory probably cut corners and the U.S. person did not do his/her quality control responsibility.

Easy To Use
Pretty Good But ...
I use this primarily for woodworking. This seems to be a mostly well made drill press. However the main reason I chose this one over lower prices competitors was the multiple comments I saw about little or no runout. This is important to me for drilling mortises. I was very disappointed to find it has nearly as much runout as the Craftsman bench top I was so anxious to get rid of. I plan on contacting Jet to see what my options are. Everything else is very satisfactory. More to come

Good benchtop drill press
This is a good benchtop drill press for the price, and it actually fits on the benchtop. It needs some disassembly, cleaning, and relubrication on delivery, as there were quite a few metal shavings on the working parts. That plus a couple of upgraded bushings made this operate quite smoothly. The variable pulley speed control is easy to use but not as stable as fixed pulleys. This does what I want it to do in my small home shop.

Well Worth the Investment
This Bench-Top Drill Press is worth every penny!! From the super convenience of the variable speed change (with no pulley-belts to manually change ... YEAH!), the ability to accurately drill exactly where you need to because of the built-in light & laser and the adjustable depth-stop, the table size w/ adjustable outboard support which really helps with larger projects, the heavy overall construction, to the small (but BIG) details in safety with the removable start-switch lock-out key and the inovative spring-loaded chuck-key that helps prevent the operator from absentmindedly leaving the key in the drill-chuck (which would inevitably happen otherwise ... OUCH!!), this machine is the BOMB!!! Check it out ... You gonna like it!
