Powermatic PM2800 1792800 18-Inch Variable Speed Drill Press
Powermatic states they’ve made this model specifically with the woodworker in mind. Of all the drill presses available on the market, this unit is the one I’d most like to have in my workshop. It has a 1 hp motor, providing plenty of power for whatever cutting needs you may have. This is the only drill press on this list with infinitely variable speeds, changed by a single handle. A digital readout gives you an accurate display of the actual speed. The spindle stroke is a respectable 4-3/8. Powermatic states their table is the largest in the market, starting at 16 x 14 and extendable to 16 x 26. Both LED lights and laser crosshairs are standard on this drill press. Overall, a very well designed product.
