The TB-16 bench pillar drill is truly designed for engineering and production use. Very heavily built and manufactured to exceptionally accurate tolerances, this drill press will stand up to hard work every day. The headstock has been machined to precisely match the quill housing, virtually eliminating any spindle run-out, even at full quill extension. Because the column is surface ground, the table rise and fall is super smooth in operation, making table height adjustment a light task. The high torque 0.375kW motor drives the spindle via a 9-speed belt drive, with machined steel pulleys eliminating vibration. Safety is provided for by a solidly made chuck guard, electrically interlocked, as is the belt cover. A large emergency stop button, which locks closed automatically, completes the picture. Lighting is provided by an LED lamp with a flexible stem for ease of placement. This high quality bench drill press is designed to meet the demands of engineers, educational establishments and light production workshops.

Great DrillAfter a problem with a cheaper Axminster model I decided to go for this drill. It's a real lump of a machine weighing 90kg which for a new drill is something. I struggle to get it up onto the bench I had built for it but soon sorted this with a block and tackle. Took quite a while to clean off all of the shipping protection grease. The stuff was everywhere. Got a layer of protection straight back on once done.

Buy one !After a couple of false starts with another manufacturer, Kevin in sales suggested this machine. Brilliant piece of kit. Built like a tank and a treat to use. Do yourself a favour spend the extra few quid and buy one. But make sure you have help to move it !!
