I have an opportunity to purchase a Clausing 15" DP. It's variable speed
500-4000 rpm, 3/4 hp, single phase, 1/2" chuck, it's a newer floor model
in great shape.
Asking price $500.00. Is it worth it?
Thanks for your input.
We've got a pair of Clausing drill presses about that size at work,
and they drill 1600-2000 2" thick pieces of steel a day, 20 hours a
day, 5-6 days a week. And they never break down. If you need that
kind of capicity, then yeah, they're worth it. If you're drilling two
holes a month in pineywood, then no, it's a waste of money.
