WOOD magazine review

Variable speed, digital readout, laser crosshair

Review Summary

The DP121L sports big-machine features (variable speed, digital speed display, and a reliable laser crosshair that never needs batteries) at a benchtop drill-press price. It has the best table for clamping with an adjustable tilting scale, and the price includes a work-holding vise. Only one thing stood between the DP121L and our Top Tool award: Its depth stop slipped the most in our testing. If you don’t do much multiple-hole drilling, though, get this machine.
