This 16-1/2-inch drill press has the muscle to handle a wide range of applications. The powerful 3/4-horsepower induction motor provides long-lasting, smooth performance and can also be wired for 230 volts. It offers 16 spindle speeds from 215 to 2,720 rpm to match a wide variety of drilling applications and the chuck accepts bits with shank diameters up to 5/8-inch. Changing speeds is easy with a tension-release handle and charts inside the pulley cover that diagram how to select and set the speed based on the bit size and material to be drilled. The large 14-by-14-inch table tilts 45 degrees left or right for angled drilling and has table slots and side ledges for easy attachment of clamps and vises. A rack and pinion table raising and lowering mechanism makes height adjustments easy. The long quill stroke of 4-7/8 inches allows drilling of deep holes without re-positioning the workpiece or table. For repetitive drilling operations, an external micro-adjustable depth stop locks in place quickly and can be fine-tuned for more accurate drilling. For improved visibility, the cast-iron head has a built-in mount for an optional flexible lamp attachment.
