This is a great machine. It is solid and well-built. Speed change is simple. The base is huge and accommodates all manner of clamps or jigs. The lamp and laser are bonus features.

Pleased with purchase. Assembly was adequate. Placed parts together by myself. A Rockler video showing proper assembly would have helped. The instructions were barely adequate. The drill itself is great. I look forward to many years of use.

Outstanding Jet 17 inch Drill Press
This drill press was easy to set up and worked perfectly. The laser is easy to adjust and works well. Speed changed are really easy. The table is perfect for the wood worker.

Excellent
One of my major requirements was for a drill press with very little run out (wobble) at the spindle. After assembling this tool I measured .0025" at the bit! I am a co-owner of Red Twig Designs MN and after my bench top finally wore out after 25yrs I thought I would get a more substantial upgraded drill press. It has great power and precision. I really like the table for woodworking, it is great for a vise or fixtures. Great purchase.

Read good reviews and went on sale

3/4 is less expensive than 1 HP, and I think it will be all that I will ever need since I am a hobby guy. I wanted a floor drill and I have a Jet product, so it made sense

I had been looking for a good economical floor drill press to replace a 1959’s era drill press and this one fit the bill and had excellent reviews.
Brian K on Mar 2, 2018
The large drill press table is great for a woodworker; the T-slots will easily hold a fence, and other accessories. On sale, with free shipping, it cost less than the 15" models.

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.
Has anyone tried using a mobile base or some kind of wheels with this drill press?
Stephen S on Jun 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: They are very seldom put on drill presses because they are top heavy. That said, Woodsmith has plans to make a moble base that is "low slung" to prevent tipping.
How do the quill stops work on this press. Are they adjustable collars on a threaded shaft or something else?
Gordon F on Jan 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Stops are set by adjustment of collars at the levers for setting height. There's a complete description in the manual, which is available from the Jet website. With about 8" of depth adjustment, and being able to set stops so conveniently, it is a great drill press.

This press doesn't have the common threaded rod with stops, but is easily adjusted!
