In Detail

Craft Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

This floor standing radial drilling machine will be an asset to any home workshop.

Perhaps the most outstanding feature of the machine is the variable drilling width capacity of between 220mm and 420mm, measured from the centre line of the chuck to the front face of the column. This gives a maximum drilling width well above normal pillar drill capacity which, coupled with the ability to vary the drilling angle, gives the machine a high degree of versatility.

There is a two part table assembly which is more versatile in use. The horizontal movement of the head is controlled by a rack and pinion system which can be firmly locked in position. Tilting is easily achieved by undoing a locking knob at the top of the column, setting the required angle against a scale and re-locking the knob. There is a positive locating pin which runs in a keyway on the horizontal bar to ensure that the head returns exactly to the vertical. A 375W induction motor drives the drilling head, equipped with a 1-16mm keyless chuck through a V belt and a choice of 5 pulleys giving a speed range of (5) 460-2,480rpm.

In other respects this pillar drill is similar to the standard models, with a true running chuck spindle and a good fit of the quill assembly into the headstock casting to ensure consistent drilling. The drill comes fitted with rubber down feed grips, NVR switch, chuck guard and belt cover safety switch. One word of warning - the chuck is located in the drive quill with the conventional Morse taper which requires an axial loading to keep it securely in place; if the head is used in the horizontal position together with a sanding drum or polishing mop there is a risk of the chuck coming loose.

Please note: the morticing attachment is not suitable for this machine.
