This is a slightly larger bench pillar drill for hobby use. Robustly made from cast iron and machined steel for stability and strength. It has a true running chuck spindle and a good fit of the quill assembly into the headstock casting to ensure consistent drilling. Powered by a 375W induction motor, there are 12 belt speeds between 210-2,580rpm. The down feed is fitted with soft grip handles and there is a convenient drilling depth control. A quality 3-16mm keyless chuck is fitted. Table height is controlled via a rack and pinion system, the whole table assembly can be swivelled away to allow the base to be used as a work support. A front mounted NVR switch and the adjustable chuck guard add to the convenience of use. The belt cover has a safety switch to ensure safe speed changing. This compact drill offers just that bit more but is still compact in size. A great choice for any hobbyist's workshop. Please note: the morticing attachment is not suitable for this machine.

Let down by the chuckThe summary says it all - the drill is quiet, accurate and well made (for the price), and has good features, but the chuck is junk.

Smart Piece of KitFour stars for quality? Well, no instruction manual in the box. The quill doesn't exactly line up will the hole in the table, essential if using a forstner bit. A knob in the box had me baffled until I spoke to technical support. The belt configuration also takes some deciphering. Having said all this the general build quality is very good, ( made in China), plus the drill is very quiet in operation. A working light would have been a boon.
