  • Avatar tegulevi Does anyone have experience with a grizzly G9969 radial drill press? im looking for reviews?

    Just looking for some user reviews.

    • Yes. I have experience with that machine.
      You can find reviews online, however most of them are written by salesmen, i.e. "editors' that work for woodworking magazines or "tool-fool" publications. My review is honest simply because I have nothing to gain or lose from the tr …ounted to a heavy work-base. When the radial arm is fully extended, the slightest weight or working-pressure makes it front-heavy. Therefore, I recommend that you attach it to a massive bench or table. Otherwise, it's a good tool, well-built and engineered to last far beyond its warranty-period.
