Individuals using the SKIL 3320-01 120-Volt 10-Inch Drill Press repeatedly found themselves not really making use of the three speed option, instead spending around 95% of their time in the second setting. In addition, one of the biggest complaints regarding this drill is not in its primary function (for which it is very well rated) but for its laser lights that sometimes stop working and have to be replaced.

Where Does That Leave Us?

The SKIL 3320-01 120-Volt 10-Inch Drill Press has a great deal going for it. A solid option in both the drill press and battery-powered drill press categories, SKIL has done it again with this reliable product that performs well above its cost. With an average price in the $100 to $200 range, you should strongly consider getting this drill press.
