  • drill press question

    i'm looking for a 8 or 10 inch drill press but i don't know which brand has any quality built into it anymore. the only one that catches my eye right now is an oscillating Shop Fox. does anyone know anything about this brand?

    Hi Rob

    Is there any particular reason why you want such a drill press? If you tell us what you're looking to achieve with it, we might be able to give you better advice .

      because its a happy medium. its small enough for the scroll work and big enough for any other project i get myself into.

        i think the shopfox would be nice. Mine is a cheaper Harbor freight floor standing, and no complaints with it. You are thinking right, buy as big as you can afford now, so you dont shop for one again in a year or two. Dale

          The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

          Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

          If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

          Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
