    I have never tried power tapping, but I will try and tap with the drill press and turn by hand to start with to get 90 degree.

    Are you going to chuck up the tap?

    Yes I will put the tap in the chuck and turn by hand.

    Will these type units say drill very tiny holes like say in a custom made hardwood button?

    I think it would do a fine job.

    Sounds tough, Good luck turning it AND applying the right amount of down pressure with the other hand all at the same time LOL

    For a cool $3500 + transport, this Bridgeport could be in my basement… lol

    I mean, it looks like a beast of a machine, but it is not for me.

    I’ve seen the tapping chucks, They don’t work with just any regular tap. You have to use a spiral fluted type but honestly I’m still sceptical on the idea, I guess I’m old fashion and learned to do it by hand. Of course there is professional grade tapping equipment like in a big factory that’ll zing threads in a hole or on a stud quickly but that’s a whole different ball game, I found this video. Ain’t no way I’d do it this way either, Even with a mill like he has. It’s just so crazy http://youtu.be/I95YrmVUL18

    I used a power tapping head on one of the LARGE milling machines I ran. The head got chucked, the tap got chucked in the head. The head would let the tap self feed and it had a clutch in it so if the tap bound up you wouldn’t break it. We also ran coolant which helped flush the chips

    absolutely hilarious you two 🙂 lol

    It is definitely not anything I could use right now, nor do I have any justifiable reason to get it at this point besides you guys trying to convince me on it lol. Maybe someday…

    haha it is definitely a philosophy easy to adapt with regards to my desire for more tools…. but I gotta draw the line somewhere.

    Has anyone bought any of the really, really cheap benchtop drill press models with any sort of success? Ryobi, Wen, etc

    I have used a friends cheep Harbor Freight bench top drill press. It did drill everything thing I wanted it to drill. Not the best power but for what he uses it for its OK.

    I bought a benchtop Ryobi a number of years ago. It performed admirably over time and is still in my basement workroom. Sunday I had a friend take me out for a little pheasant hunting. The lodge had a gunsmith in their store. I found it interesting the gunsmith had the same drillpress in his work area. I always thought it was a great purchase.
