Arghhhh. Will not need one for months. Wait for a potential deal on a 4214? It has been years since that was last seen on deal but have been so upset I had not pulled the trigger at the time (did not have the storage space).

Thanks!
Does the $15 cashback show up after checkout, or after you've pick up the item?

I've been looking for a solid drill press and almost jumped on this one at this price. From everything I've read if you get one with no defects or issues its a solid product. That being said if you need replacement parts Sears doesn't have them anymore and apparently no third party makes them either. Also, I've read reviews on several sites where people found it defective/damaged out of the box, tried to do an exchange in store and were told "sorry, the price is $300+ now and you paid less so you'll have to pay the difference to do the "exchange" ".

Based on no replacement parts and what sounds like Sears unwilling to do an even exchange if you get a DOA unit I'm passing. Just my two cents.

A very valuable 2 cents. Thank you.
I will pass too. Just absurd the lack of parts. We are turning into a disposable economy and killing the environment in the process.

I think the lack of parts is not so much about disposability as it is the Craftsman brand changing hands and not having the same reputation and support it once had. I'm just really bummed because this press does look phenomenal for the price but I don't want to deal with having to toss it if any little thing goes out of tolerance or breaks.

Extremely valuable info that is not easy to come across. Makes me feel better about passing for right now, especially given fight now I am physically incapable to even try to put it together and it would have sat in the box.

Here is bad part - it only has a 3.5 amp motor. No where is it enough on a 12". Its under designed. Not sure why this is so popular.

Thank you, this changes this from a solid yes to a solid no for me.

Anyone with recommendations out there for good drill presses for the home handyman?

Regular site says "temporarily unavailable." Might be a price mistake or out of stock.

This is really more exclusive to Sears. They are discontinuing a lot of Craftsman products. Sears is bankrupt after all and sooner or later it will close for good. Ensuring proper inventory of replacement parts makes no business sense for them right now. Craftsman is now getting carried at Lowe's and over time that will be the only place to get it.

Craftsman is also available at Menards and Ace Hardware so it's not exclusive to Lowe's.
