Experience with Delta 959L drill press
Has anyone had any experience using the new Delta 17″ 959L drill press? It looks great although it only has a 1 3/4″ diameter quill which means that the Delta mortising attachment won’t fit on it. The Delta 950L has a 2″ quill and the 20″ model also has a 2″ quill. Beside the mortising attachment not fitting, is the difference in quill diameter an issue when using a drill press for woodworking purposes. Also, is the larger 20″ model with a 1 hp motor and variable speed control worth the $200 difference in cost? It seems that most woodworkers get by with a 1/2 hp motor on their drill press.
