In Detail

Engineer Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

The RDP-20B radial floor pillar drill is an extremely robust 16mm drill. It is very different in design, following the principles of radial drills designed for hobby use but in a much larger, robust fashion. The main attraction of a drill design such as this is the sheer versatility of it. With a column able to be moved both vertically and horizontally plus swivelling through 360°, this machine can place a hole in the centre of a 1.5m workpiece. With the ability to incline the drilling head, precision angled drilling can also be accomplished, which is normally only ever done on a mill/drill. This machine is fitted with a 325mm round work table which is easily removed if required, allowing the large base to be used as a work support. This has T-slots machined into it to take a clamp kit. Very heavily built and manufactured to exceptionally accurate tolerances, this drill press will stand up to hard work every day. The headstock has been machined to precisely match the quill housing, virtually eliminating any spindle run-out, even at full quill extension. Because the column is surface ground, the table rise and fall is super smooth in operation, making table height adjustment a light task. The high torque 375W motor drives the spindle via a 9-speed belt drive, with machined steel pulleys eliminating vibration. Safety is provided for by a solidly made chuck guard, electrically interlocked, as is the belt cover. A large emergency stop button, which locks closed automatically, completes the picture. Lighting is provided by an LED lamp with a flexible stem for ease of placement. This is a high quality floor drill press, designed to meet the demands of education, medium engineering and production workshops. Floor stand included.
