Stiff Mechanisms

Doug on 27th Aug 2018

Good drill but very stiff working right out of the box. Ran it thru 150 - 200 pumps before I used to drill some stones. Loosened a fair amount after that but still a bit for delicate drilling. My workbench space is limited so this drill is good for my purposes. All in all a sturdy drill at a fair price.

Bought a second one

Jan on 27th Feb 2017

I have used my first drill press for over 8 years and it is beginning to show wear. I like the precision and ease of operation I have with the manual drill and the smaller size allows me to work in my limited space. I just purchased a second one and would recommend this product.
