Shop Fox W1668 review

Shop Fox W1668 13-inch Drill Press review

 


 

The Shop Fox is a breeze to use and operate for the everyday DIY task or for the more advanced jobs. And this DP definitely does have sufficient power and speed.
The W1668 is also a very versatile piece of equipment able to comfortably tackle a large variety of tasks because it is powered by a 3/4 horsepower motor and has 12 different speed (RPM) settings, so you’ll be able to adjust to whatever material you’re currently working on.

 
Pros:
– it features a variety of speed options for all tasks from 250 – 3050RPM

-The Table can swing a complete 360 degrees which lets you tackle big jobs with ease

-this product has a sturdy high quality build

– robust steel construction

-Comes with kit to make it double as an oscillating sander too, so you get more than just a great drill press, you get a tool which is great for efficient contour sanding too.

 
Specifics:

– this DP has a 13″ swing capacity

– 5/8″ drill chuck

– 3/4 HP, 110 volt electric motor

-Overall height: 38 inches

– Maximum table tilt (left/right): 90 degrees.

-Dust port size: 2.25″

 
Summing it up:

Anyone who needs a high quality versatile drill press for their work space will not be let down by the shopfox. Because of its great speed settings and high power motor it can easily suit drilling into most materials you can think of. Although this product might be towards the high end for some peoples budgets it does feature a whole array of bells and whistles that in my opinion make it worth every penny.
So considering it is very high quality and full of features I think it’s a good choice for some, but you should consider your budget and what your needs are… as depending on your circumstances a machine like the WEN 4208 could actually be more suitable.
