Another great post by Blondihacks, this time on acquiring, and setting up a ‘shop-quality drill press; if you’re thinking about acquiring a drill press for the first time you will want to read this first to know what to look for – and look out for!
If you’re at all interested in machine tools, a drill press is a really great place to start. It’s an easy introduction to many of the principles and procedures of machine tools, it’s inexpensive, and it’s incredibly useful for other things if you decide metalworking is not for you. If you’re on the fence about buying one, I thought I’d put together a little guide on my recent experience with acquiring and setting up a Grizzly G7944.
