Suggestions for a drill press for a gaep finisher

Post by ehgbyf » March 18th, 2018, 1:25 pm

My new house has room for a small drill press. Can anybody recommend one for using with a gaep crimp finisher?

Harbor Freight has one that is about 70.00, it is a bench top model with 5 different speeds and works great for roll crimping, here is a link.

I think they routinely run these on sale also.

Is about 1050 rpm's where you want to be when using the gaep crimper?

If I run my harbor freight at 1650 it gives ridiculously good looking crimps.
