"Have always used a floor type, Industrial grade drill press at work. Now that I'm retired, I wanted a bench type for the work I do now. I researched for a month before making this purchase and couldn't be more satisfied. I doesn't have a work light or Laser, but I never had those options anyway. It is built tough and the oscillating sander is a huge plus for me. I can't think of a thing we did in our maintenance shop that this would not have handled and it is somewhat portable, where the floor type was required to be anchored to the floor.
The only negative I could mention is that I purchased mine for 100 bucks less than it's listed here.

"I ordered this to kill two birds with one stone. I am making guitars in my retired days. Needed an accurate drill press and oscillating spindle sander. This gives two for the price of one.
I am truly impressed with the heavy cast iron base and large work table. The machining accuracy is impressive. Don't expect one of those little bench drill presses at the home improvement store.
"Some Assembly Required" This was a piece of cake. Heavy but went together perfect. The instructions say there are lag bolt included for bolting to your bench. They were not included but not a deal breaker here.
Everything works smoothly. It is very quiet and the oscillation is silky smooth.
I was actually expecting stamped metal and lightweight. Nothing lightweight here.
The specs say shipping weight 127 lbs. Reality is 170 lbs. Heavy duty.
I am very impressed. Let's hope it runs for years."
