Delta 18-900L 18-Inch Laser Drill Press
Once again, Delta weighs in with a winner with this 18 drill press. Like all Delta tools, this drill press unit is a rugged workhorse. If there’s anything this company knows how to do, it’s eliminating chatter in their power tools, and this drill press is no exception. Of all the drill presses selected, this model is the only one with a spindle stroke extending to a full 6 of travel, extremely beneficial when drilling deep holes, or holes inside of a hollowed out workpiece. The motor is a little smaller than Powermatic’s, at 3/4 hp, but still powerful enough for just about any drilling task. Laser crosshairs and flexible LED work lights are provided. An auto-tensioning belt drive system allows for fast and easy speed changes for any of its 16 available speeds, while minimizing power loss through belt slippage.
