If you are looking for an economical drill press, Ryobi might be the way to go. There are a lot of drill presses on the market. The main item you need to think about before you buy a drill press is what size you want, or better yet, what size do you have room for. You can either get a table top (Moveable) press or a free standing drill press. The free standing takes up a lot more room. My guess if your looking at Ryobi tools, chances are you are a home user with limited space, so the Ryobi table top might be the way to go. If I am wrong and you are looking for a free standing drill press, take a look at either Delta or Jet, just to name a couple of the top brands.
A table top drill press is nice. If it is not used everyday, you can store it in other places and out of the way.
Ryobi’s drill press has some nice features, such as a laser light, and a rack and pinion adjustable table. They have a couple different presses that all seem the same for some reason. The most common press I see is the 12″ table top press that has variable speeds of 500- 3000rpm. If you are looking for an economical drill press for home use, I think this is a very good press to get. It has most of the features of a professional press, but takes a lot less out of the pocket book.
