In Detail

Hobby Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

This is a truly universal drilling machine that will be an asset to any home workshop. Perhaps the most outstanding feature of the machine is the variable drilling width capacity of between 210mm and 420mm, measured from the centre line of the chuck to the front face of the column. This allows a maximum drilling width well above normal drill press capacity which, coupled with the ability to vary the drilling angle, gives the machine a high degree of versatility. 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. The 370W induction motor drives the drilling head, equipped with a 3-16mm keyless chuck through a V belt and a choice of five pulleys giving a speed range of (5) 500-2,450rpm. In other respects this drill press 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. 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.

Very good value

Given the budget price this has been very impressive. It sounds a bit rattly, but the accuracy is spot on (for wood, engineering might be another matter). Easy to set up and very versatile, it has done everything I've asked of it. It is actually a very flexible piece of kit, with the clever cranked support for the table, which you can use or leave aside, depending on application. Because of the radial function, it can be a power source for sanding, buffing, all sorts of stuff apart from a pillar drill.

well impressed

Ive been eyeing this up for ages and finally took the plunge and I wasn't disappointed. Next day delivery as stated and well packaged on a mini pallet. The glossy manual is very detailed but if you have a mechanical mind its intuitive to put together. A good sturdy machine and very solid castings. It runs true and square straight from the box for me. By the very nature of it being a radial drill it can over balance so screwing it down to the workbench is recommended.
