At the threat of specifying the apparent, I want to explain that the function of a drill press is to drill regularly straight holes precisely into plastic, wood or metal. The purpose of a drill press with a fence is to drill recurring holes in a work piece at a consistent distance from the edge of a work piece. The function of a drill press with a fence and one (or 2) stops is to drill holes at a constant range from one or both ends of a work piece or work pieces. The purpose of a drill press with a tilting table is to drill precise and repeatable holes at a specific angle into the work piece. The purpose of an electrical drill is to drill holes only where utilizing a drill press would be impossible or impractical.

There are many things to think about when comparing drill presses such as motor size, table size and features, quill stroke, task lighting, laser accessibility, rotation speeds, ease of speed change, number of speeds, reversible feed handle (for lefties) as well as the size of the base (for maker stability).

With regard to motor size, experience informs me that 3/4 horse power has to do with the tiniest size motor I 'd like to see on a drill press. Some models try to get away with a 1/2 horse power motor. There are times, particularly at higher belt speed ratios that a half horsepower motor will prove to be inadequate.

I just recently completed 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 considered are competitive with each other and list for about half the price of the Powermatic. I am going over the 2800 PM as an example of exactly what a drill press could be if loan were no item. The other drill presses I examined were both really capable machines and would absolutely do the job in a typical woodworking store.

The person who created this thing clearly understands a lot about drill presses and woodworking from individual experience. If money were no item it would be the drill press I would buy.

Like any Powermatic machine, this drill press has premium, smooth operation and features to crave. It likewise has a rather significant price tag when compared with other comparable devices. That stated, let's take a look at exactly what you get for your loan so you can decide if it deserves making the dive.

This drill press features twin LED lights, mounted in the head that do not cast shadows, head-mounted twin lasers that identify the drill point, a 16" x 14" table with twin T-slots that expands to 16" x 26" when had to support big work pieces. The table tilts left or best 90 degrees with a positive stop at zero degrees. A large deal with makes raising or reducing the table easy. An additional, special feature that is included in the cost of this device is an adjustable split fence with a dust collection port. If you do not purchase this machine, a fence is necessary to production work so plan on buying or making one.

Speeds are quickly changed from 400 to 3000 RPM with a manage on the upper left side of the head, suggesting that you do not need to concern yourself with belt and pulley gain access to. And, you can inform how quick or slow the maker is running by taking a look at a digital speed sign right on the front of the head. Likewise in the front of the head is a lighted on/off switch with a key.


At the danger of stating the apparent, I 'd like to point out that the function of a drill press is to drill consistently straight holes precisely into plastic, wood or metal. 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. The purpose of a drill press with a fence and one (or 2) stops is to drill holes at a consistent distance 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 accurate and repeatable holes at a precise angle into the work piece. The purpose of an electric drill is to drill holes only where using a drill press would be impractical or difficult.
