Drill Press

I am looking to buy my own drill press later in the summer. What type would be recommended for Copper milling and other case mod usages?

That one looks a little light weight for what you guys want to do. 1/3 Hp ain't going to last long. That thing is made for drilling pine and other soft wood. Get somrthing with some NUTS and bolts to it.

grizzley tools are notorious junk...

if all you want to do is play around with waterblocks and small things like that there is really no point in getting a big old floor standing one.

If you buy something good, the bench model will do fine (read jet not ryobi or rigid).

if you want something that will kick ass look at powermatic.

Cheap tools are ususally cheap for a reason.

If you intend to use a pilar drill for milling you will need a good one. If there is too much play in the chuck bearings or too much "float" then your bit will "chatter" loads and you will either break your mill or damage your copper (or just be totaly unable to cut)

I used a medium quality drill when i milled my block and it was far from satisfactory, the ammount of float in the chuck didnt matter when drilling but when milling it was critical as the mill would bounce.

Im not saying dont buy that $70 drill, but if your buying it solely for milling then its best to get a good one than something you cant use (or that you break)

You will also need a X-Y table that might be expensive.
