Central Machinery 5 Speed Bench Drill Press With 1/2 Keyless Chuck
I’ve basically picked this Central Machinery unit for its low price. I have an earlier version of this same drill press in my workshop and it’s served me well for a number of years. The vertical capacity on this unit is only 5 3/4, which really isn’t all too much; however I have found very few projects I couldn’t work on, even with this drills small size. Like the Grizzly unit, it has a 1/3 HP motor and a two inch spindle stroke. This unit comes with a keyless chuck, the only one on any of the drill presses I’ve selected which is great for convenience, but users need to be careful to not spin the drill bit when cutting through metal. All-in-all, this budget drill press is a great addition to your workshop.
