In Detail

Engineer Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

The TB-16 bench pillar drill is truly designed for engineering and production use. Very heavily built and manufactured to exceptionally accurate tolerances, this drill press will stand up to hard work every day. The headstock has been machined to precisely match the quill housing, virtually eliminating any spindle run-out, even at full quill extension. Because the column is surface ground, the table rise and fall is super smooth in operation, making table height adjustment a light task. The high torque 0.375kW motor drives the spindle via a 9-speed belt drive, ( 190, 340, 400, 550, 650, 680, 1550, 1770 and 2800 rpm), with machined steel pulleys eliminating vibration. Safety is provided for by a solidly made chuck guard, electrically interlocked, as is the belt cover. A large emergency stop button, which locks closed automatically, completes the picture. Lighting is provided by an LED lamp with a flexible stem for ease of placement. This high quality bench drill press is designed to meet the demands of engineers, educational establishments and light production workshops.
