A good Drill Press is one of the most used tool in a shop. That's a good unit for 90% home shops but little light for Pro Metal Fab guys. On that one, you have to change belt pulleys to change speed. Which is a PITA if you work with different materials often. The table is a little light, I like a heavy cast table with several T-Slots. Also look for a Morse spindle so you can swap chucks. I have a Wilton 20" VS Drill Press but then again I have a serious tool addition problem.

I went to lowes to get this drill yesterday and they just had the display model left. I figured They would definetly deal with me on it Well the tool department guy says "Its marked down to 379.00 and thats the best I can do on it" I told him that I heard they were discontinuing this unit and wondered if they wanted to get rid of it for a little less? He told me I had to talk to a M.O.D. (Manager on duty) So I did and the guy was a total ***** and said he does not care what I read or what other Lowes are doing with there inventory, He was responsible for this location and would not sell it for any less then $379.00. I said thank you for your time and left. So the reason for this post is I am curious if any one else has gotten a deal on one of these or if its one of those things were you have to know some one to get a deal???
