In Detail

Craft Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

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.
