This is a very substantially built pillar drill with several notable features, having variable speed to the spindle giving a stepless range of 330-2500 rpm, a large, precision ground work table with extension wings, ability to be configured for left or right handed operation, a telescopic rear fence with work stop and dust extraction outlet and an LED work light. Powered by a 1.3 kw induction motor there is ample power for the job in hand. A 16mm keyless chuck is mounted into the MT2 spindle taper with a digital read-out of the spindle speed. A cross laser and LED work light makes precision work positioning easy. Supplied with a flip-down chuck guard for safety, this is a great machine for those looking for a pillar drill a good deal better than the average offering.

Good drill, used alot and still accurateVery good pillar drill, bolted to the floor as intended, very little to no vibration. Slight flex noticeable when using large and cumbersome lumps of wood or dull large diameter drill bits, to be expected really. Variable speed adjustment is extremely easy to use and very effective. Laser sight is a great feature which has been extremely useful on many occasions. Used in a training environment where its receives frequent use in a variety of applications. Axminster staff very helpful in going through how to use the features. Even delivered it to the exact resting location. Recommend the product and service strongly.

Vibrates like a donkeyVibrates and noisy very dissatisfied with what is an expensive bit of kit for drilling holes in wood. The comments about the table flexing under pressure are true. The lazer is nice however the chuck guard badly designed and a nuisance.

Nice drill but....It's a well built drill press with adequate power. Laser guide and work light are excellent features!But table tendes to bend during drilling, especialy when usind larger diameter drill bits or forstner bits,where vertical force increases. Also it can turn left/right during operation since table clamping is not strong enough to prevent horizontal table movement!! I would expect more from Jet in that part.. Nevertheless Axminster delivered another heavy item to Greece securely and in time!!!

Jet Pillar Drill 800vsexcellent drill, laser guide is really good and repeatable the variable speed control is so easy that you always have the right speed at the flip of the lever. Obviously a bit more than most others because of the speed control but well worth it
