ToolPro Drill Press 350watt 13mm $99.99 (+ Bonus Drill Bit Set Worth $31.78) @ Supercheap Auto

60

I was going to buy one for $159 @ Trade Tools but thought this might be ok for the price and just diy. I haven’t set it up yet so can’t attest to quality. Bit set is also ToolPRO and is 15 piece upto 10mm

      The Ozito one actually looks pretty good. Not sure about the ebay one.

      IMO it's pretty hard to go past the Ozito in the budget range that these all appear to be in given the 3 year warranty via Bunnings.

      I note the comment in the only review of the bonus drill set on SCA that the reviewer broke 3 of them the first day using them drilling through tin fencing. Easily done but quality sounds questionable.

    Looks a pretty good deal - I have a Full Boar drill press, which is pretty good, but I sort of regret spending as much money on it as I did because I don't use it that much due to the limited applications. If it's something that you will use for the odd job, this is probably a pretty good deal.

    Bunnings sell an Ozito 500 watt 16mm 9 speed drill press for $99 which comes with a 3 year warranty.

    It may be better value if you don't care about getting a bonus drill set.

    I think the Ozito would actually be the better buy. I obviously didn’t check what Bunnings offers. Is $99 the usual price for the Ozito?

    $99 seems the usual @ Bunnings. Never seen it cheaper…
    Does the job, but check before you buy as quality is ordinary…
    I wouldn't pay $32 for this dill bit set fwiw..

    I bought one of the SuperCheap drill presses a while ago - it was cheap.

    With the cheap ones you need to get your hands on them before you buy to test the amount of wobble on the spindle. Most of them have a sleeve bearing which does not hold the shaft firmly - just grab the chuck and see how much it moves sideways.

    The one I have has a fair bit of movement, so if you need precision holes, it could be a millimetre off your mark with a long bit. On steel it will wonder around quite a bit before biting and even then the holes are not precise.

    I don’t need super precision but I suspect there will come the day when I wish I had bought better.
