Grizzly G7942 Five Speed Baby Drill Press
Grizzly has one of the biggest lines of power shop tools on the market. I picked the G79422 drill press because of Grizzly’s reputation for building quality rugged tools. This model is their smallest drill press, providing eight inches of travel and a two inch spindle travel. The motor is 1/3 HP so it doesn’t have as much clout as some of the others units we’re looking at. Nevertheless it will still take drill bits up to 1/2 inches in diameter and is supposed to be able to drill 1/2 inch holes in plate steel. The 6-1/2 inch square table tilts up to 90 degrees in both directions. This unit is long-lasting Grizzly quality in a compact package.
