Drill Press

Perform accurate and efficient drilling for various bit sizes to suit numerous types of materials and thicknesses.

Some machines are set to a slow speed (for metal) or a fast speed (for wood). Local signage will confirm.

For machines that can accept Metal or Wood variable speeds are achieved by manually changing a pulley system.
