DP58P Floor Standing Drill Press
Record Power have a high reputation for quality drilling machines and we believe that when these machines are compared with others in the market the high quality of these shows. We have a pre-rack and pinion model in our course workshop which has none of the head play and rattley pulleys found on most cheaper models that seem to have similar specs.
When it is critical to drill a hole at a certain angle or the hole needs to be stopped at a specific depth, there really is no substitute for a dedicated drilling machine. By setting up the work piece and clamping it to the table all guesswork is eliminated and accurate and repeat drilling becomes simple and easy. Likewise, drilling bowl blanks for screw chuck mounting or using sawtooth bits is just a doddle.
Tilting table feature with measurement guide for drilling angles. Making extensive use of steel and cast iron and driven by powerful induction motor this drill can be expected to give reliable service for many years to come.
The headstock in particular is made from a large casting to give rigidity and absorb vibration. As with all Record Power drilling machines the hand-wheel is made from an ergonomically designed one piece casting for user comfort and to provide additional weight in the headstock. The tables have been made much larger and heavier than in previous models and in recognition of this, the oft requested addition of rack and pinion rise and fall has been made.
This machine has twelve speed pulley system with belts easily moved using a cam-lever mechanism. making it suitable for drilling metal as well as wood.This is particularly useful as most woodworkers have the occasional need to drill metal for hinges, brackets and plating etc. and it can be very frustrating to have the right machine for the job but not the right speeds.
