Thanks for the great input guys. The consensuses seems to be a mortiser, which I was thinking. I don’t have much knowledge about the attachments for drill presses and the main concern I had was how good they work and the amount of setup time. I’ve been looking around and I did notice the Shop Fox is the only bench top with a 3/4 hp motor, all others have a 1/2 hp, plus the thickness of the stock is greater to. The price for the Shop Fox also is less than all others. I did notice that the Ridgid machines at the Home Depot I work at are going down in price every few months. We have about 5 or 6 drill presses in stock so I may get one when the price goes down a lot and grab a drill press then.
