Buying a benchtop drill press doesn't mean you need to sacrifice features or power, and the JET JDP-15B 15'' Benchtop Drill Press proves it. With its powerful 3/4HP motor and a full 3-1/8'' of spindle travel with just one turn of the handle, it makes quick work of drilling holes in nearly any stock. And with the Xacta laser crosshairs, you'll know exactly where the drill bit will land. The sturdy cast iron head, base and table provide stability and dampen vibration, while the one-handed belt-tensioning system allows easy speed changes.


Features:
  • Spindle travels a full 3-1/8'' with one revolution of the handle
  • Large 12-1/2'' x 17'' precision-ground work table features twin T-slot grooves and 4 table slots
  • One-handed belt tensioning for rapid speed changes
  • Power switch features a safety key and large, paddle-style off button
  • Integrated depth stop makes repetitive drilling quick and easy
  • Xacta-X laser system easily locates the center of the drill bit
  • Long-lasting, built-in LED work light reduces shadows
  • Table edge lip for easy clamping
  • Replaceable MDF table insert
  • Large cast iron base for stability
  • Powered by an efficient 3/4HP, 1Ph, 115V TEFC motor and poly V-belt drive system

Awesome drill
Made a 26” High tool cart for this drill and along with a woodpecker drill top table, it is a great drill press.

Excellent press. I mounted mine on a mobile cart along with my disc sander. Great accuracy with the flexibility to move it around. This replaced my stationary one.

Jet Drill Press
The drill press is easy to assemble, and it runs perfectly. The features of the lED light and the laser alignment work perfectly. The depth gage is very simple to set. I am delighted with the drill press.

Good reviews on this product.
Reed Biggers I on Dec 8, 2018
I chose the JDP-15B after a LOT of research into benchtop market specifically, as I do not have the space for a full size drill press. This JET unit has a lot of thought designed into it and I intend to use those features to their fullest.

Wide range speeds especially low speeds less than 300 RPM. Jet tools quality.

is there a mortising attachment that fits this tool?

If a person is 6’ tall. How tall should the bench top be that the drill press sits on ?
Jack B on Sep 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I am 6’2” and originally put it on top of my bench that was 36” tall. This made it impossible to change the belts for speed control unless I stood in a ladder. So I built a custom cabinet for it and the base of the drill is now sitting on a 27.5” high top. This makes the belts easy to get to for adjustment and the downfeed handles are at a convient height. Hope this helps and I absolutely love the Jet JDP-15B. The depth stop is my favorite feature
Does this unit have the ability to operate in reverse?
RobertC on Nov 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I do not believe so, but why would you need it to? To be sure, I recommend you download the users manual and review it.
A drill press has a swing of 15". Does that mean the center of the chuck is 7.5" away from the horizontal support or throat?
Ernest L on Jun 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Ennest, The center of the chuck is 7.5" from the support column. I've had my drill press for about a year and I'm very happy with it. Once you calibrate the laser crosshairs you will wonder how you got along without it.
Is any of this made in the USA or just CHINA / other?!?

BEST ANSWER: All of these tools are made in Taiwan, to very strict Quality Control standards of Jet/Powermatic. They are of very high quality. For a number of reasons, there aren't many power tools currently made in the USA, although some are assembled here. Perhaps this will change in the future.
is there a manufactured fence designed to work on this table top?
Allen K on Jul 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I purchased the WPDPPACK1 Drill Press Table from woodpecker and the DP-3 fence. They work very well.
Why cant i pick one up at your store?
Ellie S on Aug 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Ellie, I couldn't pick up the one I bought either, it had to be shipped to my home. Perhaps for the stores it's a matter of lack of space. But I can tell you for sure that I'm glad it was shipped to me because this drill press is VERY heavy and well made..it's only after I got it our of the box that I could handle all the pieces to assemble it.
JDP-15B is possible to swap the handle to the other side. Not that its life threatening but I'm Left handed and would like the spindle and handle on the Left side?
Papa JonTK on Jul 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately no, the handles and depth stop functions on the right side are not interchangeable with the left side return spring adjustment assembly. The machining work done to the drill head is not apparent in the manual's photos or diagrams, it is far more involved than a simple hole running from one side to the other.
