A compact and well engineered pillar drill for the home workshop. One of the most notable features is the extension wings fitted to the cast iron machine table, these give extra support to longer workpieces, especially when drilling near an edge. The maximum drilling capacity in steel is 13mm, impressive for this size of machine. It is powered by a quiet input 350W induction motor. Making life that little bit easier on the eye is a 12V halogen lamp. The depth gauge is micro adjustable, ensuring accuracy. N.B. Morticing attachments will not fit this machine.

Jet JDP-8I've had this about a year and found it very useful but it's noisy, there is a lot of play in the chuck/quill when extended and i'm disappointed with the quality. I would have sent it back (for a replacement) if I'd realised I didn't have to pay for the postage.

Pay what you get for!Gambled that £100 would buy a little better quality than a normal Chinese made drill. Frankly, it's no different, high runout at the chuck(.006") and drasticly loose quill(.010") when extended. Much noisier than a cheap NU tool version. Still not bad, does the job, but just looks more flash.
