Many years ago I bought a new floor drill press from a store that was going out of business.
I added a work light and a foot switch to it. The foot switch is only active when the light is on.

I have their 10" table saw, 14" planer, 9x27" gear-type mill, 18" band saw, 1 1/2HP vacuum, 1 HP vacuum, planer blade sharpener, air pop riveter, micrometers, steel rule, 2 HP buffer, 7 1/2 HP air compressor, and several small accessories. With the exception of a small jig saw made in China, I have found their tools excellent quality. Most are made in Taiwan. I toured their showroom in the late '80's, was impressed with their tools, and took a chance on my first purchase. I was impressed by the quality and their customer service. Since then they are my go-to for new machinery. I highly recommend Grizzly tools.

I have it’s mate. I bought it 30 years ago aa an auction. A friend and his buddies thought the old flat belt was funny until they needed a hole drilled. They couldn’t believe how easily it drilled a hole in sg tube for a hitch.

Estate sale?
Maybe the frustration of trying to adjust the thing is what killed the previous owner.
Wink...

Years ago I bought a Grizzly cordless drill motor. I think it had a 1/2" chuck on it. It worked great for a few years until the battery would no longer hold a full charge. I called Grizzly to get a new battery and they said "sorry we don't make those batteries anymore". So, there I was stuck with a drill motor and battery charger that was useless. No more Grizzly stuff for me.

Now, about vibration, I purchased a 14" Rigid band saw that had vibration in it. I got it to slice off .019" cuts off the side of a 4" X 4" piece of myrtle and they were consistent from start of cut to end of cut.

The first thing I did was get rid of the belt and put one of those segmented belts on it. Yes, they do get rid of vibratiion. I also put a machined, balanced pully on the motor and bearing blade guides on the saw. I replaced the blade with a "Woodslicer" blade. What you see in the pic below is pretty good for a cheap Rigid band saw.

I've got the tablesaw.. It's OK but not a real precision piece. Not at all satisfied with the fence.. Thin stock goes right under it and jams.

Forget the grizzly crap. There is plenty of excellent quality American made used equipment out there. Delta comes to mind. Start checking Craigslist, etc for your drill press. Got my Delta drill press on Craigslist. It is in excellent condition.

Delta hasn't been made in the USA for a long time.
Grizzly is a way better tool than Delta is now
