Eventually I got rid of this big useless paper holder, this Chinese piece of junk called also Delta DP350 variable speed bench and I am looking to replace it. I do everything that has to do with maintenance in my house. One day I drill in steel and the other in soft wood, so I need to change speeds often. Although I dont use it everyday I am looking for a good reliable tool that will work when and as long as I need it to. Dont mind paying if its a good value for the money. Was considering the Jet JDP-12, 12 with digital read out but after reading the reviews I prefer to look for something else. After reading a lot in the Internet I got the impression that there is not much to offer out there. I am thinking of the Northern Industrial Variable-Speed Floor Drill Press with Digital Display - 1 1/2 HP for $600, cut its post and turn it into a bench model. The problem is that is has only 8 reviews (all good). If there is anyone here who is using this model, I would appreciate any insights. Also if you had experience in converting a floor model drill press into a bench one, I would appreciate hearing about it. Thanks in advance. A.
