Impressive Build Quality and Service

I purchased this pillar drill about 2 years ago and it has been a real work horse since the day I brought it home. I use it for both drilling and drum sanding with great results.

The quality of the components is second to none and it does exactly what it says on the tin. The adjustable table is solid and stays put and the multiple speeds are quick and easy to change.

Regarding quality of service, within 3 weeks of purchase I received a recall notice due to a small issue with the wiring of the motor. I immediately brought the drill back to store where it was swapped, no questions asked for a new, pre checked replacement without the fault. This tells me that Axminster cares about their customers and I shall continue to shop there for many years to come.

Good value

I bought this drill setting out to do both woodwork and metal work. The assembly was straightforward and created no problems. The general quality is good and there is very little play in the quill or chuck which gave some confidence. I had little difficulty in drilling wood but drilling metal was a bit less easy. I spent some time levelling the drill so that I could use an electronic angle indicator to set my work pieces (metal) accurately. Being at the bottom of the range there were a few drawbacks. The table is quite tiresome to adjust the height when using a heavy metal vice whereas the more expensive models have a rack and pinion mechanism which must be easier. The guard was a bit flimsy and caught on the emergency stop button. This button, fitted simply to comply with safety standards, just operated the normal stop button underneath and made restarting very awkward having to unclip the cover so a separate emergency stop would be much more practical as provided on the trade models. I removed the emergency stop cover due the above problems without compromising safety I think. The guard and depth stop were mounted on a plastic moulding clamped to the drill. This was a bit flimsy and soon broke leaving it loose and I think could do with a rethink.

You get what you pay for and maybe a little better

This arrives flat packed so there's a bit of assembly required. The base plate casting is attached to the flange at the bottom of drill column by three bolts. The pre-threaded bolt holes in the base plate were "dirty" so it took some effort to get the bolt to screw in. There is no guide notch to centre the drill head to the top of the column. Neither is there any bar to centre the drill table to drill head. The depth stop is a little cheap. So these are the some nitty little points which could be improved. The big bonus point is that there is very very little play in the chuck which is what I need. Plenty of different speeds and the whole machine fairly good quality. It fits my requirements
