A very useful smaller pillar drill for the model engineer, electronics enthusiast or indeed anyone who has the need for an accurate, compact machine for drilling holes up to 6mm diameter. Unlike many other similar drills, the Axminster Model Engineer Series X0 is solidly made and has a hefty cast iron base, making it stable and free from vibration. Features include a choice of two speed ranges with full electronic control within each speed range, digital read-out of the quill travel with zeroing facility and choice of metric or imperial units, coarse or fine downfeed and a quill locking screw. The cast iron base has two T-slots for holding a vice or compound table and there is an adjustable fence bar which clamps to the table to act as a support for the workpiece.

Nice idea spoilt by poor quality motor and drive belt.This is a nice miniature drill-mill that should be perfect for model makers and those that have a use for a small precision machine - and it almost delivers!

Mr S. Newbury School DT tech.The school had purchased the drill prior to my employment, having now used the drill I agree with other reviewers about motor speed control issues. I also found it very noisy.
