Its decent ¼-HP motor with a rating of 120 volts and an amperage of 3.2 amps enables penetration of the toughest work pieces out there

For a tool designed for home and hobby use, the SKIL is surprisingly precise. The 2-beam laser is accurate and makes precise drilling operations a breeze.
- Tool + Bark
You can tilt the head of the drill press from 0 degree to 45 degrees. This allows you to aim exactly where you want to. Thus, you get more maneuverability with the help of this machine.
- Drilly
The press is quiet, smooth and user friendly, and can withstand usage of one to two people on it, and yet it can take heavy duty.
- Table Saw Geeks
This drill press comes with five adjustable speeds, with a range between 570 RPM’s up to 3,050 RPM’s. The adjustable speed will allow you to ensure you can get the proper amount of drill speed necessary to create the hole needed to complete each project.

What experts didn't like
Laser light does not work well

Some owners struggle with its assembly
- BestReviews
It's a starter drill press that you will eventually outgrow as you get better at drilling.
- Cut The Wood
I had one complaint it would be the small size of the work surface and the lack of a slot for a sacrificial wood block for the drill bits to bottom out on.

Unreliable depth stop: Some people have reported problems with the SKIL’s depth stop function because the instructions aren’t very clear about how to use it. While it works, there is a bit of a learning curve involved.
- Tool + Bark
Some Find The Speeds A Bit Hard To Switch
- Drilly
It only got two small downsides, the laser runs on batteries, and a lot of hassle is required to change the speed.
- Table Saw Geeks
Can only hold Drill Bits that are ½” or smaller
- Tool For Home
April 29, 2017 | Full review
one of the biggest complaints regarding this drill is not in its primary function (for which it is very well rated) but for its laser lights that sometimes stop working and have to be replaced.
