WOOD magazine review

Lots of drilling capacity

Review Summary

Capacity, capacity, capacity: The G7943’s 14" swing, 3/4-hp motor, and 5/8" chuck were all tops among the eight benchtop drill presses we tested head-to-head. It also has a generous table, and weighed the most at 140 lbs. With a test-best slow speed of 140 rpm, it has the low-end torque to handle large boring jobs with ease, and its threaded-rod depth stop proved reliable.
Our lone knock: With the most spindle runout in the test, we had difficulty placing bits onto a pinpoint crosshair.
