The 18-inch Laser Drill Press (18-900L) has a 16-speed (170-3,000 rpm) heavy-duty 3/4-hp motor and an adjustable twin laser that projects a bright red crosshair at the point of bit contact. Its auto-tensioning belt drive provides for fast, easy speed changes while maintaining consistent belt tension and motor alignment, says the maker. The unit's 6-inch quill stroke allows for deeper drilling applications, and micro-adjustable depth stops and an independent depth scale let users quickly zero setups for repetitive drilling. A 14-by-20-inch slotted adjustable worktable, nontip base, and flexible LED work light are included. Price: $829. 888-223-7278. www.deltaportercable.com.
