    No buyer remorse

    I found that it was very easy to assemble. Fit and finish was fantastic. This is a first class piece of equipment and i find it hard to come up with any cons. Every aspect is just solidly put together and all the form is rounded. Very sleek looking and it runs as well as it looks. Great addition to my workshop.

    Good Value

    I purchased this drill press during a Jet 15% off promotion and it was delivered well packed and with no damage, fit and finish was excellent. Assembly was straight forward and well documented but does require two people to install the table and headstock. The table is excellent, it's large with flat edges for clamping and the built-in T-slots makes installing a fence easy. Speed changes are quick with the easy to release idler pulley. I found the depth stop and quill lock mechanisms easy to set and provide positive stops. Power seems adequate but I have not challenged it with any large bits. I do not have a gauge to test runout but I detect none at full extension. The LED light and laser are nice additions. I feel I got value for my money and would recommend it to others.
