In many woodworking shops, the drill press might be the most under-utilized piece of machinery in the shop. Many common drill presses need to be tweaked to handle many woodworking tasks, but Delta’s new 18″ drill press (18-900L) handles whatever you might throw at it.

Most reviews rave about the 6″ quill travel, and it is neat that one full turn of the handles completes the entire 6″ movement. While that amount of travel is industryleading, the worktable and micro-adjustable depth stops are the real story.
