Sherwood's new generation drill presses have arrived and are simply outstanding - put it against any other drill press of a similar spec on the market and you'll likely agree with us that these are best drill presses you can get for your money. Upgraded features above and beyond the original Sherwood light-duty bench drill press are -
- 4-Pole 1,400rpm motor produces double the torque of standard 2-pole motors
- One-piece drive spindle design (instead of using a tapered drill arbor) improves drive transfer and concentricity
- Industrial keyless chuck included as standard equipment
- Micro-switch built into pulley cover means it can't be accidentally turned on when changing speeds
Consider the Advantages of the greater flexibility this Drill Press offers.
The ability to drill in the centre of larger sheets. Drilling a series of holes in line without moving the work. Or what about drilling on an angle while the work piece remains flat and easier to handle?
Combined with the use of forstner-style bits this becomes so easy. Think of the compound angles or the addition of various attachments to take advantage of the adjustable head - such as drum sanders or the mortice attachment kit. Radial drill presses are recommended for woodworkers for all of these reasons and can make your work easier and more accurate.
