Hey guys. I was just about to go pick up a drill press from HF when I saw this ad. Any thoughts? It has a newer keyless chuck.

The alternative is the heavy duty bench top model from harbor freight.

for 225 bucks it be in the back of the ole truck…... Clean her up some, check belts, go at it….. Style reminds me of PM1150…. Good quality machine there…. Compare to a HF, I would not put them in the same truck together out of respect for the Delta….

Agree with Gshepherd—go for it. Can’t beat the old machines.
