15 Days with Jet J2530 15 Inch Bench Drill Press

Posted by Henry.Wilsonn on May 17th, 2016

I usually go with JET machines because their drill presses are easy to maintain as JET drill press parts are easily available at many retail and online stores. Talking about JET J-2530, it’s only a fundamental machine. Another basic protestation is transportation harm, so I requested a J-2530 from ToolOrbit and picked it at a neighborhood store, since it's much less demanding to give back a substantial overwhelming thing in individual.

It comes bundled in a twofold thickness cardboard box. The crate could be somewhat bigger to oblige thicker filler material, however by and by; mine was undamaged – with all parts.

This is my fifth drill press and my third bench model. For vast occupations, I have a 20 inch model. The J-2530 supplanted a very much utilized thirteen year old Delta DP350 with a split aluminum pulley. Delta now considers that pulley and numerous different parts "out of date", so it's no more accessible. At the end of the day, you're screwed on the off chance that you purchased one of their machines. That’s not the case with JET machines as JET repair parts are still accessible.

For a bench model, the J-2530 is enormous. On a 40" tall seat hurl base is 63" off the floor. So mounted, a stage stool may be required for machine operation unless you're tall. Gathering the machine is straight-forward, with nice directions.

After using it for 15 days, I’ve found JET J-2530 to be a truly pleasant machine. Key pluses include:

  • Enormous, sturdy and heavy duty machine. The switch gathering and the table wrench handle are plastic. Everything else is solid metal or steel
  • The 0.75 HP twofold metal roller engine is extremely capable
  • The enormous 5/8" chuck holds bits tightly; unlike those key-less chucks on some Powermatic machines for instance
  • 15" swing – a run of the mill size for a respectable floor press – is the biggest accessible for any bench demonstrate that I could discover
  • Table can be raised effectively with a rather weighty 5" cross tight clamp mounted, in addition to it can be pivoted 360 degrees as required for situating
  • Speed changes are fast and simple. Discharge the belt pressure, move the belts according to the outline on inside spread, and re-strain.
  • Implicit globule holder in the cast iron drill head is very much put. A 50 watt brilliant spot globule points light on the work table and out of your eyes.
  • No vibration or belt babble. Machine just murmurs when running, paying little mind to speed.
  • The unit I got has no detectable run-out.
  • JET gives a 5-year warranty on their drill presses; superior to whatever other manufacturer

All of the above features make this drill press a truly amazing machine that you can rely on for multitude of medium to heavy tasks. It is built to last with metal construction, performs well in different conditions and with all kinds of woods and comes with a 5 year warranty for additional assurance. For this price, it is one of those hard to beat pieces of equipment that can’t be resisted.
