Great drill press

Needed a drill press for woodworking. This is a solid machin. will out last me. Tested it by drilling on the edge of the wood many times no pop outs drills straight. Also used it with a drum sander. Sanded like a pro. Led lite lights up your work area well. Laser worked well but I like to line up my own projects by sight. It a good quality drill press. Will make a nice addition to your work shop. I'm happy with my drill press.

Underpowered at 3.5 amps.

I was pretty exited to see this new addition to the Craftsman line. Looked like a well-bulit machine that could handle most anything an avid DIY'r could throw at it. With that in mind I ordered one. I examined the machine upon receipt, and indeed, it is well built. Fit and finish is quite good for a drill press this size/price. The LED and 'small' fence are nice features. HOWEVER, this drill press (as of 11/12) is advertised to be 1/2hp/4.8 amps. Well, its actually advertised as 1/2hp "continuous", which is an under-handed way of claiming a product has more USABLE power than it actually provides in reality. Even still, I was prepared to deal with 4.8 amps, which is still the equivilent 1/3hp- enough for a drill press like this. UNFORTUNATELY, this machine is only rated at 3.5amps. Thats barely adequate for a 8-12" drill press, but is absolutely pathetic for a 12" drill press. I think my 3/8" hand drill has more power. Craftsman almost did it right, but came up short on power.

solid machine


I've used it a few times so far. What you see on the site here is what you get. It's solidly made, and it performs. I found it pretty easy to put together. I'm going to use it for woodworking projects, mostly, and it's perfect for that without breaking the bank. It's a lot like the Craftsman 10" compact sliding miter saw I bought. It's got some nice features and does what I need it to do. Craftsman makes nice entry level power tools. They're better than the cheaper ones you can get at big box stores or the discount tool store but you can stretch your dollar a lot more than with, say, the yellow brand.

Chuck Key replacement is no longer available in Craftsman parts.


I own this Craftsman 12" Drill Press. I am satisfied with its functionality. I am not satisfied with Sear's parts department. I lost the chuck key and Sears is no longer stocking that part. I have not been able to find a third party replacement which fits as well as the original. Apparently, even the Craftsman line is affected by Sears' problems. I will avoid Craftsman tools that could require spare parts from now on.

Works as expected


Drill press works as expected. Set up was straight forward. Power is sufficient and I haven’t noticed any wobble or travel in the chuck. I like the jig on the table it is simple and effective.  Great for a hobby workshop.
