The top link, they suck. The middle link leeds to a tire company. The 3rd link is a Craftsman, they are middle of the road, ok for the price.

Start naming your links: [url=link]name here[/url] leave out the space inbetween the ] and the word name. Try it it's fun to name your links with a discriptive word.

Mastercraft tends to be good quality, I have some stuff from them and it's great. I've never used a Mastercraft drill press though, so Idk how well it translates.

Try Harbor Freight tools. I got my press for $40 on sale. Plus, they carry a $50 mill vice for drill presses so you can use it as a mill. I'm getting that for Christmas. :D

Have you tried Busy Bee Tools?

http://busybeetools.ca/cgi-bin/product1 ... 4082167653

They sell the "Craftex" brand of tools.

My dad purchased a 12"X36" gear head lathe, and a 1 1/2hp Knee mill a couple of years ago. (If only he lived closer eh!)

The machinery is heavily built, (read light industrial) and very good value for the dollar.

IMHO lightweight tools are fine for occasional hobby use, but heavy tools do a much better job, and last a lifetime or more.

I'll take good old cast iron over aluminum any day. :)

Hey, when I first heard about "Harbor Freight", I thought it was a shipping company :P
