Drill Press Laser
The Wixey™ WL133 Drill Press Laser projects a set of bright crosshairs onto your drill press table precisely where the drill bit center will contact your workpiece. This allows you to instantly position and clamp your workpiece in place so that the hole is drilled exactly where you want...
• Thin, bright crosshairs are simple to align to drill chuck center
• Mounts easily on most drill presses with included hardware
• Crosshairs stay on center at any table height or workpiece thickness
• Rugged steel construction holds up to normal drill press vibration
• Requires two AA batteries, which are not included
Why only 3 stars?
Great addition to the drill press. Definitely beats eyeballing the entry point of a drill bit. Easy to set up and use. Don't think that since laser is in its name, you're going to achieve accuracy of millionths of an inch - it's still just a drill press you're using. But it is a great aid in placing your holes and increasing the accuracy of location. This was a good buy.
Assembly is fast and can be adjusted to fit any size drill press. It isn't going to make you able to hit whole locations with in microns, but it definitely beats visually aligning is spinning drill bit with a mark on the work piece. I've been very pleased with mine. Gives a nice crisp laser line.
Not accurate, gets blocked by fence
I thought this laser would increase the functionality and accuracy of my drill press, but I was wrong. While it's very easy to install, it was difficult to get the cross-hairs accurately aligned, and then to get them to stay there. If you have a fence on your drill press, as I do, the fence partially blocks the lines and makes them difficult to see. All in all, I found the entire setup cumbersome and difficult to use and not very accurate, so I ended up sending it back. Kudos to Woodcraft for making the return effortless.
