I had the 9” Ryobi for many years, and can’t say I actually remember how much travel the quill had. It was doing most everything I needed, and then one day in Lowes I see a Hitatchi B16RM display floor on clearance for $100. It was like night & day having the capacity to the table. My advice would be that if you have the floor space, go with the bigger model, it’s super annoying to think you’ll put a hole in something and suddenly with the drill bit was shorter.

-- I've decided 1 mistake is really 2 opportunities to learn.. learn how to fix it... and learn how to not repeat it
