FlounderFillet5 Posted September 14, 2015 Share #1 Posted September 14, 2015 Hello there, I am in the market for a bench top drill press and would like some suggestions from you all. I currently have a cheap chinese made bench top drill press that I picked up for about $60 a couple years ago. My current drill press has done some good work for me but I really don't think it is that safe as the pull down handle can be pulled out and this causes the spring loaded drill press head to shoot toward the ceiling which has broken the top plastic cover. This time around I am able to spend a bit more money but I am having trouble finding reviews that I trust for these small drill presses. I have looked at the Microlux drill presses from Micromark and they both seem decent but I have heard mixed reviews of them. I would definitely prefer a drill press that will, like the Byrnes sander I own, last many years and hopefully be a pleasure to use. Most of what I am finding are very similar drill presses to the one I currently have and I am skeptical to get anything that resembles my current press. Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks in advance! Best Regards, GLakie, mtaylor and Canute 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
