JET J-2550 20-Inch 1-HP 115-Volt Single Phase Floor Model Drill Press review
This Jet model is built to be precise and designed to last you a life time. It’s engineered so that it is durable and has enhanced flexibility. Precisely these two features make it ideal for both commercial and maintenance operations. Unlike other machines of this class, this 3/4 HP floor model drill press (model J-2550 / 354402) offers a greater range in spindle speeds.
And the best part is:
The head casting features a permanently lubricated ball bearing spindle assembly, using four heavy-duty ball bearings mounted in an enclosed quill for extended life.
What’s in the box?
No surprises here, a JET J-2550 20-Inch 1-Horsepower 115-Volt Single Phase Floor Model Drill Press awaits in the box, along with your assembling assistant – the manual.
Dimensions and specific features
The overall dimensions for this jet model is 33 1/2″ x 18.5″ x 67″ in weighs somewhere in the ballpark of 300 pounds. This model has the same 12 speeds ranging from 150 to 4200RPM that the other two JET models had as well, which will tackle each job with efficiency.

Conclusion and review
I have recently purchased this model. I have to say I was taking a risk, being that there are not many customer reviews online. But, when the drill came and I unpacked it and used it for the first time, I have to say it was flawless. This industrial floor-mounted drill press is reliable and efficient, with its permanently lubricated ball baring spindle and a 1-horse power motor. I have to admit that I needed some help in assembling, but that’s what best friends are for!
To sum up:
I highly recommend this unit for your workshop, you won’t regret it!
