Why Buy BIG? (When Benchtop Will Do)


Shop Fox Drill Press

Why buy? A benchtop drill press with a 10-12" swing capacity (the widest piece in which it can center a hole) handles 90 percent of boring tasks required for making furniture and cabinets. After all, how often do you drill more than 5" from the edge of a project part? And with 3"-plus of quill stroke, most benchtop models bore plenty deep for mortises.
Cost savings: about $200
Go big instead if you routinely bore holes larger than 2" into hardwoods, drill into steel, or sand aggressively with chuck-mounted drums.
