Very satisfied (5/5), Dec 17, 2015

By David Baron (Centennial CO US)

I have a full-size JET floor-standing drill press. Most other vendors offer 16x24 tables. If I was going to get a table, I wanted something that was big enough to hold 'large' objects. This 'jumbo' table met the criteria and was way less expensive than the other, smaller offerings. Sure, the hold-down tracks could be closer in, and yes, the height of the fence can get in the way of the chuck when using small bits, and yes the 'quality' of the various components is not 'awesome', but, for the money, it all works great.

The under-table hold-down clamps also worked great - no movement at all - solid as a rock and easily/quickly removable/put-on-able.

My biggest 'issue' was that the 'center of the inserts' is only 6" from the rear edge of the table. My large DP has 8" from table center to support column and I wanted all the room I could get. So, I merely moved the table back an inch and a half or so. The table still completely covers my DP table in the front and the 'hole' is just a bit forward of dead-center. No fuss, no muss. Plus, by moving the table back and the 'hole' forward, this gives me 4 holes per insert (simply by rotating the square insert 90 degrees each time. Winning!

I would certainly recommend this to a friend (along with the 3-pack of replacement inserts).

OK, but... (4/5), Sep 29, 2010

As far as providing a wider, deeper table area for my Delta Floor model drill press it does that well. I find the fence slightly hard to adjust and the height of the fence blocks my laser crosshairs.

The tracks for the hold-downs could be closer in or another one provided to clamp short pieces.

The biggest problem is that there are no replacement inserts available for sale for the thing. They're not hard to make but laminating and cutting little square pieces of MDF just the right thickness is a pain. It would be simple for them to supply a pack of 4 replacement inserts for a modest cost to solve this issue.

Overall I'm pleased with it, but it could be better.

MLCS NOTE: We have just added replacement inserts for these tables to our product line. You can order #9759, a set of 3, for $7.95.
