Good boring leverage

High Points:
↑ A flip-down guard prevents accidents around the chuck—a good idea because the chuck key lacks a spring-loaded safety pin.
↑ Long quill handles deliver ample leverage.
Low Points:
↓ Requires two open-end wrenches to tilt the table, but neither are included.
↓ Without a quill lock, you can’t secure the chuck in a lowered position.
↓ You must remove a screw with a screwdriver to open the hood for speed changes.
↓ The battery-powered cross-hair lasers easily bump out of alignment and intersect at a steep angle, making pinpoint accuracy difficult.
↓ The chuck key did not fit in the onboard chuck-key holder.
More Points:
→ Safety lock-out on the power switch engages with each shut- down and is difficult to open again.
→ Mortising with the optional attachment (#70-905, $120) proves accurate, but setup proves more finicky than with other makes.
