    Every drill press should have a sturdy, reliable stop for drilling multiple holes to the same depth. These units feature two different styles of depth stops: a threaded rod on the left side of the head, or a dial stop on the handle shaft. To test the effectiveness of each unit's stop, we drilled 100 holes using a 3/8" Forstner bit, and then measured the depth of the first and last holes with a digital caliper, noting any variation. Threaded-rod stops with locking nuts performed flawlessly in our tests, but we found mixed results with the dial stops.


    • Among the many different types of drill press, you may know the so called stationary drill presses. As the name suggests, it is a stationery item, which means that it isn’t easily moved around. if you read the drill press reviews, you will understand that this kind of machine is great when used for bigger tasks and works, such as dealing with table size, chuck capacity, speed selection, quill stroke, throat depths, and such thing alike. When compared to table planers and saws, this one is surprisingly affordable - if not cheap. The price tag for stationery model and the bench model is only around $200 to $300 different, making this machine look promising. After all, it can be used for making holes in plastics, metals, and even stone and glass.
