More about Drill presser
|A drill presser/press is a tool with a rotating drill bit used for drilling holes in various materials. Drills pressers are commonly used in woodworking, metalworking, construction, and DIY.
A drill press is a fixed style of drill that may be mounted on a stand or bolted to the floor or workbench. A drill press is composed of a base that supports a column; the column in turn supports a table. Work can be supported on the table with a vise or hold down clamps, or the table can be swiveled out of the way to allow tall work to be supported directly on the base.
Speed change is achieved by manually moving a belt across a stepped pulley arrangement. Some drill presses add a third stepped pulley to increase the speed range. Modern drill presses can, however, use a variable-speed motor in conjunction with the stepped-pulley system.
The size of a drill press is typically measured in terms of swing. Swing is defined as twice the throat distance, which is the distance from the center of the spindle to the closest edge of the pillar. For example, a 16-inch drill press will have an 8-inch throat distance.
