Checklist For Bench Drills

Einsatzmöglichkeiten
  • With the table drilling machine, it is finally possible to drill holes with pinpoint accuracy and absolutely straight. Both for smaller handicrafts and in furniture construction, thanks to the bench drill, work can be done with higher precision, which leads to a more beautiful result.
Motorleistung
  • The required motor power depends on the selected material. Generally, you need less power for drilling in soft materials such as wood than for metals.
  • A good guideline for drilling in wood is a motor power of 350 watts over 15 minutes.
  • For hard materials, such as metals, it should be about 700 wat ts of motor power or more to be able to work without interruption.
Drehzahl
  • Speed ranges up to 2500 rpm provide fast, precise drilling in wood, metal, plastic and many other materials. For ideal, smooth drilling, the speed should be infinitely adjustable by controller.
Zusatzfunktionen
  • Models with precisely readable drilling depth are ideal when it comes to making row holes, for example, for a piece of furniture.
  • For optimum illumination of the drilling area, the bench drill should have integrated lighting.
  • Drilling becomes even more precise if the bench drill has a built-in aiming laser that precisely marks the center of the hole.
  • A tilting or swiveling drilling table provides even more options. This way, you can even drill your holes at a specific angle.
  • To prevent accidental drilling through the workpiece, you should look for a bench drill with a depth stop. This stops the drill automatically and thus protects the workpiece.
Lieferumfang
  • A quick-action chuck makes it easy for you to change the drill bit in just a few steps and allows you to work smoothly.
  • Quick-action clamps are ideal for holding small, flat workpieces. Therefore, when choosing a bench drill, look for this practical extra on the drill table.
  • Some models already come with a rip fence. If you don’t already have one in your workshop, you can save yourself the trouble of purchasing one separately by choosing an appropriate bench drill.
