    Have a Dremel 8000 and thought adding a dremel work station drill press. Need something small and precise for the small work one does in clock repair. Purchased at Loews this morning and 2 hours later returned it. Flimsy, inaccurate, plastic.

    I found this website with a very nice American made press ...

    and they also make this combo milling machine using dremels....

    The price is bit more expensive but the quality is there and would be supporting an American business.

    My Sears Craftsman is just too large for the smaller work I do and these look very good.

    If I didn't already own a UNimat 3 with the drill/mill setup, I'd go for that milling rig. When I broke a drill bit many years ago, my father said to me, "You can drill with a mill, but you can't mill with a drill." :D
