Freight Orders

Freight deliveries require a delivery time be scheduled and someone must be present at the time of delivery to inspect and sign for the merchandise. A representative from the freight carrier will call the phone number entered at checkout to schedule the delivery.


Liftgate Service

For freight deliveries, you have the option of adding a liftgate to your delivery. A liftgate is the device that lowers a product from the truck to ground level.

CPO recommends adding liftgate service for freight deliveries exceeding 100 lbs if you do not have a loading dock or fork lift at the delivery address. Additional charges may apply. The liftgate option will be presented during the checkout process.

Please note that liftgate service only ensures the product is removed from the truck. We recommend you have the additional help of two to four people to move the product to its desired location because drivers are not required to assist.

Requesting liftgate service after ordering may result in additional charges and delays.

A lot of drill press for the money
I did a lot of research on drill presses with longer quill strokes, and this is the only one I found that had the magic combination of more than 3.25" of quill travel and a price tag under $1400. I was using drilling jigs to locate holes and found that the thickness of the jig plus the depth of the hole to be drilled was greater than the puny stroke of all benchtop and even many floor model presses. This was the ticket. The spring-loaded return when you release the handle is not as snappy as on a smaller-capacity model, but it's acceptable, and totally worth the trade-off.

The laser is handy for rough work, but I'll always use a dimple or stops for precision drilling, and the light is certainly a nice feature. I knocked it out of alignment during assembly and it was super-easy to set it back up correctly. Overall the unit is not super tall. I have it directly on the floor and while it is stable enough (I did shim it as it wobbles a bit on my wavy concrete), I think I am going to put it on something just to bump the height up a few inches. I am 5'8" and the table height is maybe a bit on the low side--OK but not great. But since I slotted this thing under a heating duct, the short height is a plus.

The idler pulley for releasing tension is OK, but I never really objected to old-school methods of releasing tension. Definitely not as convenient as the variable speed you get on a top-end Powermatic, but then again that's twice the price.

The depth stop takes some getting used to, but is nice and solid. On my last (benchtop) press there was a threaded rod with a stop nut that hit a depth stop made of bent metal. If you pushed hard, you could bend the stop and over-drill your depth. This stop feels bulletproof.

The table is pretty adequate for woodworking use. I will most likely not need to add a supplemental table. The edges are thin and flat so it's easy to clamp to them, and the T slots work with standard toilet bolts, and the overall size of the table is pretty good--much better than the traditional round table or very small square one.

Assembly was simple--would be nice to have a helper but I did manage to do it myself with a heavy lift of the head onto the column. The instructions for seating the taper/chuck are not really the best way. You can find a better method via a google search.

A nice product, and given what else is on the market, very capable for the price.

Just as advertised
I ordered the press to drill both wood handles and holes thru wood handles metal knife tangs. This drill press does a great job. It came with easy to install instructions and is packaged well. The light and the laser beam really allow you to focus on precision work. The table is level and easy to raise up and down. I am surprised how quite the drill press is. The look and feel of the drill press is very good.

Works Well
Still new but the drill press seems like it will do the job. The machining is about average with slight variations in the table top. At several hundred dollars less than the Delta model I think I made the right choice as it will do all I want it to.
