Oscillating Drill Press ...


Recommended Posts

My old drill press is a royal pain so I've been thinking about replacing it. I ran across this Shop Fox Oscillating Drill Press at Grizzly and it caught my interest It's reasonably priced, it's got enough swing for most guitar stuff I'd be doing (8.5") and it's even rated for the same HP as my old free standing 15" press. The oscillating option seems interesting because I could use it as a spindle sander and it's even got a dust port.

What do you think? Is Shop Fox a decent brand? (it's just repainted Grizzly stuff, right?) Anyone have any experience with an oscillating drill press? Thanks for the help folks :D

If I'm not mistaken, the more expensive model of that drill press got a fairly good review in a recent (mid - late '07) woodworking magazine. There was mention that the dust collection / spindle sander system made it a very versatile tool.
