The same reliable 'Heavy Duty Industrial Quality Drill Press'  since we started manufacturing them in 1984... but with the benefit of some 21st Century features.

This "Borum Industrial Drill Press" delivers precision and power... and is designed to handle the demands of a professional workshop environment. With a powerful long-life industrial quality 3/4 HP motor (that's fully enclosed in a durable metal hood) double-wide spindle bearings and a precision spindle, this is one very reliable drilling machine. Equipped with 16 drilling speeds from 162 to 3,000rpm and a 16mm drilling capacity this robust and user-friendly drill press is ideal for a busy maintenance workshop or small production factory. Perfect for fabricators looking for a drill press that's rugged enough to handle the demands of light and medium duty production work and accurate enough to consistently deliver precise results.  (Previous models include product code/s; CH16NF)

Intended Use

This device is used for producing holes in hard substances. A selected drill (drilling) bit is held in a rotating spindle and is fed into a workpiece, which is usually clamped in a vice resting on the adjustable table. The drill bit may be gripped in a chuck with three jaws, or it may have a tapered shank that fits into a tapered hole in the spindle. This Drill Press offers varying the spindle speeds and is intended for use with drill bits only.
