At the danger of mentioning the obvious, I want to point out that the function of a drill press is to drill consistently straight holes precisely into wood, plastic or metal. The function of a drill press with a fence is to drill repetitive holes in a work piece at a constant distance from the edge of a work piece. The function of a drill press with a fence and one (or more) stops is to drill holes at a consistent range from one or both ends of a work piece or work pieces. The function of a drill press with a tilting table is to drill repeatable and accurate holes at an exact angle into the work piece. The function of an electric drill is to drill holes just where utilizing a drill press would be not practical or difficult.

There are numerous things to consider when comparing drill presses such as motor size, table size and features, quill stroke, job lighting, laser availability, rotation speeds, ease of speed modification, variety of speeds, reversible feed manage (for lefties) and even the size of the base (for device stability).

With regard to motor size, experience informs me that 3/4 horse power is about the smallest size motor I wish to see on a drill press. Some designs attempt to get away with a 1/2 horsepower motor. There are times, specifically at higher belt speed ratios that a half horse power motor will prove to be insufficient.

I recently finished a side-by-side contrast evaluation of 3 drill presses from three different manufacturers. The Powermatic 2800 PM was, without a doubt, the most pricey I evaluated. The other 2 drill presses I thought about are competitive with each other and list for about half the cost of the Powermatic. I am talking about the 2800 PM as an example of exactly what a drill press could be if cash were no things. The other drill presses I examined were both extremely capable devices and would absolutely do the job in a typical woodworking store.

The individual who designed this thing clearly understands a lot about drill presses and woodworking from personal experience. If cash were no things it would be the drill press I would purchase.

Like any Powermatic machine, this drill press has premium, smooth operation and includes to crave. When compared to other comparable makers, it likewise has a rather large price tag. That said, let's take a look at what you get for your money so you can choose if it's worth making the dive.

This drill press includes twin LED lights, installed in the head that do not cast shadows, head-mounted twin lasers that pinpoint the drill point, a 16" x 14" table with twin T-slots that broadens to 16" x 26" when required to support big work pieces. A fence is important to production work so strategy on purchasing or making one if you don't buy this maker.

Speeds are easily altered from 400 to 3000 RPM with a manage on the upper left side of the head, suggesting that you do not need to issue yourself with belt and wheel gain access to. And, you can tell how quick or slow the device is running by looking at a digital speed indicator right on the front of the head. In the front of the head is a lighted on/off switch with a secret.


At the threat of mentioning the obvious, I 'd like to point out that the purpose of a drill press is to drill consistently straight holes properly into metal, wood or plastic. The purpose of a drill press with a fence is to drill repetitive holes in a work piece at a consistent range from the edge of a work piece.
