You compare the following features: Horsepower (HP) is the maximum power produced by the motor. Higher horsepower allows you to bore larger holes through tougher material. Drill presses are available with motors from 1/4 to 1 HP. Size/center drilling capacity is determined by the distance from the center of the chuck to the column. Since the press can bore a hole in a circle with a diameter two times the distance from the center of the chuck to the column, the size is listed as twice the distance from the column to the center of the chuck. A 16" drill press can drill a hole up to 8" from the edge of a straight board or at the center of a 16" diameter circle. Variable speeds allow you to drill different diameter holes through different materials without damaging the material or drill bits. Drill presses are available with five to twelve speed settings. The more speed settings, the more versatile the drill press. The table on most drill presses can be raised and lowered along the entire length of the column. It can also swivel 360° around the column for boring oddly shaped pieces. Better presses have large, tilting tables with fences. Quill travel determines the depth to which the press can bore holes. Greater quill travel allows you to bore deeper holes. Depth-stops control the depth to which the quill descends and limit the depth of the hole. Depth-stops are good for repetitive boring and dowel holes. The more precise your depth-stops, the more accurate your boring operations.

There are just two types of drill press which are:
1. Floor standing
2. Bench standing

In my opinion the floor standing version of any shop tool is always going to be better. That said the bench top versions work very well, and they will save you floor space. In the main it will come down to space.
Someone who is a woodworker will always buy a floor model as they will have more features. Others who do some hobby work will be more that happy with the results they will get from one that sits on a bench.

The shaft in my drill press wiggles back and forth enough that it doesn't drill true i.e. at 90 degrees to the workpiece. How to fix?

Strip it down, check for loose mountings. If those are OK, find which bearings are worn and replace them. With drill presses, you get what you pay for.

I am considering buying this used drill press. How do I change speeds on this drill?

If the drill press has multiple pulleys, you move the drive belt up and down. Larger motor pulley to smaller drill pulley has higher speeds, and vice versa.

What size taper is on a delta DP220 drill press so I CAN BUY A 1/2" DRILL CHUCK TO PUT ON IT

If its possible, pop along to a local machine shop and ask nicely if they could help with identifying the Morse Taper, if its a Morse. Go online for what tapers would have been used around that period. Drill chucks are usually 1/2 UNF mount even if its a late metric unit. You would need a Morse to 1/2 UNF or taper to taper if you buy a taper fit chuck.

Need an owners instruction manual for an old, Remington Tools drill press, Model R-17-15

I have what I believe is the same press and have not been able to find anything at all on the manufacturer. However, you will find that it is nearly identical to every other chinese manufacture press in it's class. This manual should be pretty close to yours minus the oscillating features.

I want to put a taping head on my drill press. What is the spindle size of a craftsman 12" drill press?

without the model number I am going to guess that as a general rule most smaller drill presses are a #2 morse taper socket and a #2 jacobs taper arbor (where the chuck presses on) you should have been supplied a knockout pin to remove the chuck assembly from the internal socket.

Drill Presses Models

When shopping for a drill press, you'll have to choose between two basic models: 1. Bench-top drill presses mount directly to a workbench or on their own stands. Their compact size makes bench-top models good choices for small shops. 2. Floor-model drill presses usually have more powerful motors, more attachments/accessories and greater material handling capacities than bench-tops. The extra versatility makes floor models good choices for serious DIY and commercial shops.

Hammer drills Features

There are a few features you may want to pay attention to include: A Depth Rod mounted to the drill lets you know when the bit reaches the desired depth; Variable Speed Selection allows you to adjust the drill for specific jobs. Use high speed for small holes and low speed for large holes; Reverse can retrieve a hopelessly stuck bit; Removable Side Handles give the operator better control in normal use, and can be removed in confined spaces.
