Features

This 17 In. swing drill press has a 6 In. stroke making it ideal for most industrial applications or for any situation where longer, deeper drilling is required. The unit is equipped with a 3/4 In. precision machined chuck and totally enclosed 1 HP motor and a 12 speed, 340 to 2800 RPM, belt and pulley system for drilling applications in either wood, plastic or metal. Featuring extra-long down feed handles for better leverage and feed control the 75-260 is equipped with an easy to use non-slip positive depth stop for accurate repeatable drilling depths. The spindle runs on high quality sealed bearings for precision drilling. The sturdy cast-iron table tilts 45 degrees left or right and can be pivoted out of the way for off-table work with longer pieces. For user protection the large front mounted paddle style stop switch has a lock-out safety feature to prevent unwanted or unintentional start-up.

Additional Features

  • Rotating, 45-degree tilting, crank-operated worktable with quick release clamp
  • Extra long quill stroke, drills deeper than most drill presses
  • Slower speed options ideal for metal drilling applications
  • Spindle is supported by high quality ball bearings and cast-iron pulleys reduce vibration

Customer Reviews
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great drill press for the money Several years ago I purchased a slightly smaller floor model drill press but I wanted something heavier that has a larger spindle. So I considered several floor models. After making phone calls, contacting General in Canada, and reading the reviews are the reasons why I bought this machine. The only thing I do not like is how to change speeds. The middle idler pulley should be fixed in such a way that it can mounted on a pivot setup or something else that allows the idler to move and the belts tightened from the motor end. I replaced the set screws that hold the position of the motor once the belts are tightened with metric thumb screws which works much better and allows the belts to be adjusted quickly and easily. Considering some of the preferences I have and design quirks I still consider this the best value on the market. I own two General jointers and a 10" cabinet saw which I bought in 1987 and have been satisfied with all of them. A few times before purchasing a machine I contacted General in Canada and they have been very helpful. One time I had an issue with a defective part and then sent a replacement immediately. Seldom have I received that kind of no questions asked quick response. Their support is great. I would give this machine a 9.8 out of 10 if I could.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A lot of drill press for relatively little money. This is a substantial drill press, one that I'm pleased to have in my shop. I love the long quill stroke! The fit is very good. The finish is decent. However, I am baffled that it seems no engineering acumen went into the speed change process. To change speeds you have to first locate two set screws, one on each side in the rear recesses of the machine; then loosen them with an allen wrench, while the pulley lever impedes your access to the one on the right. From reading other reviews I knew this before buying the machine. But I bought it because I know it's a well made machine, sold at a very good price; and because I know I can forego the set screws and add a removable stop brace to keep the belts tensioned, streamlining the speed change process. Besides, if you don't see yourself modifying the speed change mechanism, you should still consider that, as is, it only takes a couple minutes to do it; and most of us very seldom change speeds on our drill press anyway. You can buy a long, screwdriver type allen wrench to make it easier. You can buy this machine with confidence that you'll get a lot of drill press for a good price. If you receive it from a freight company as I did, you should avoid standing the box up to haul it on a hand truck, as the very heavy head piece is packed on one end or the other with nothing supporting it but styrofoam packing. Leave it flat and unpack it as it comes on the crate. Even if you have assistance assembling it, as you definitely should, don't try lifting the head piece onto the standing post/base assemble. It's too heavy. Lie the post/base assembly on its side; lie the head piece on its side; and slide them together as they lie. Chock the base against the wall so it won't slide away from you.Then have your friend help you stand it up. If you're a weight lifter you may be able to stand it this way yourself, as I did. But, in my late 50's, though I'm 6'2", 220# and in decent shape, it was all I could handle, and I almost busted a gut standing it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from General 17-Inch Extended Stroke Drill Press After shopping around for a quality drill press, I finally decided on this larger than I need model....and have found out that I am using is just as much as my smaller presses! The quality of the build is really nice. It was pretty easy to assemble...but as the directions say, get help placing the head on this baby, it's HEAVY! The chuck is nice but only holds an 1/8" bit at the smallest. The Spindle is a JT3...so you can get other bits if needed. Shipping was great & the box was not all torn up at all! I think for the $...especially the price that Acme Tools has on this press it's a value & will last years. The on & off switch is nice but a bit over-board on safety I almost took off the big off paddle but what the heck...safety is good. I have changed speeds on it and it is easy to do. Most of the hardware is Metric though...so be prepared for that. It comes with a laser pointer but I honestly change table-levels too much to bother with such stuff...but for those who like tech....there you go. All the machining on this press is pretty good. Nothing like the old school presses, but much better than may of the new ones, as is the paint:) All-in-All I'd say it a deal & it will serve me well.
