If you have two drill presses that are equal in every aspect except for mass, always go for heavier one. As with most stationary shop tools there is an advantage with weight. The weight absorbs vibration from drill press allowing machine to run more smoothly.
There are some accessories and attachments that can improve use of your drill press. Something to look for is a drill press clamp. This keeps your material firmly in place while you are working. You should always avoid holding project by hand when you are working with a drill press. Fences are also useful attachments that help keep project in position during drilling.
A drill press can be used for a lot more than drilling if you have right attachments and accessories. These extra uses include sanding, grooving, and mortising. Mortise attachments are very popular, allowing you to drill precise mortises with your drill press.
