Skil Drill Press 3320-02, 10-Inch

This Skil drill press, although a smaller drill press than others on the market, is well built and does the job. The Skil 3320-02 has a 5-speed 120volt, 60Hz motor allowing it to drill a number of different materials, however, it’s perfect for woodworking. A 45 degree tilting worktop surface allows for angular drilling, and a laser (powered by two AA batteries) adds to the accuracy.

This press comes with many additional features, some of which are outlined below:

Product Features

  • A two-beam laser for precise and accurate hole alignment.
  • Variable 5-speed motor; practical for drilling metals, plastics, and wood.
  • Changeable Depth Stop for accurate repetitive drilling.
  • Cast iron base and work surface for durability.

The Skil 3320-02 is easy to use, and the motor is very quiet and runs smoothly. Although the lasers run off two AA batteries, they are easily replaceable, or you can use rechargeable ones. This unit is also relatively easy to setup, and quick to get going.

The lasers (a must for deadly accurate precise drilling) and added features such as the angular 0-45 degree tilting work surface and the adjustable Depth Stop were also very welcomed by users of this product. Here are some additional comments

“…The drill assembled easily and the instructions were good. The unit operated without any problems. I’m very happy with it and would buy from Skil again.”

Conclusions

The Skill 3320 is a fantastic drill press ideal for home use or small workshop use for hobbyists. Easy to assemble and with clear and easy instructions. A fantastic machine for the price.

The features of this model are very welcomed, and personally I wouldn’t buy a drill press without such features these days as it makes the whole drilling process more more easier and more precise. Skil have got it spot on this time. I would recommend this product.
