Wen drill press?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Chris F May 17. 9 Replies

I'm thinking about buying a bench top drill press, mostly for doing tuner holes. Have used a hand drill up till now, with varying results. I'm leaning towards the 8 inch Wen, 75$ - + . Anybody have…Continue

It made a nice clean connection.
