Sherwood Bench Mounted EVS Drill Press 750W

  • Sherwood Bench Mounted EVS Drill Press 750W SWDP-38016-BVS

    The Sherwood 750W EVS Drill Press delivers ultimate control and superb accuracy to your drilling setup.

    Featuring true electronic speed control with the power of a three-phase motor, it is built to produce uncompromising precision. The ideal benchtop machine for professionals and serious enthusiasts who demand drilling flexibility without sacrificing accuracy.

    High-Tech Reliability

    The guts of any drill press is the drivetrain. In Sherwood’s EVS drill presses, high-tech engineering meets elegant simplicity. A three-phase motor controlled by a VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) powers a high-precision spindle through a rugged and reliable two-speed v-belt pulley system.

    Speed Control at your Fingertips

    The VFD allows continuously variable speed control anywhere from 0 to 3000 rpm, allowing you to dial in the exact bit speed without having to open the pulley cover and wrestle with v-belts. This is particularly useful when you often work with non-timber materials like metal. 

    Superb Accuracy

    Boasting less than 0.02mm runout at the taper, the SWDP-38016-BVS is a game-changer when it comes to precision. Pair it with quality drill bits and achieve the super-tight tolerances you’ve been dreaming of!

    Smooth and Quiet

    Some drill presses rattle like the loose change in your pocket, and all that noise and vibration impedes your drilling accuracy. The Sherwood EVS, by contrast, is super-smooth and quiet. The majority of what you hear is the air from the VFD cooling fan. And there’s almost zero vibration – just a slight purr to let you know the machine is actually running.

    5-Year warranty

    All Sherwood products feature a standard 5-Year limited warranty. No other drill press in its class is more supported than the Sherwood 750W EVS Drill Press.


    Dial right into the sweet spot for any given operation with fingertip adjustment of the spindle speed across two speed ranges. You’re capable of tiny incremental changes to adjust for variations in timber hardness or bit sharpness. Shift from ultra-fast for tiny bits to super-slow for huge Forstners or steel drilling – all without even having to turn the machine off, let alone open any covers. Watch your productivity explode! 


    The SWDP-38016-BVS achieves its accuracy through a simple recipe: heavy castings, precision machining and quality bearings. Maintenance is straightforward, as all the moving parts are easily accessible. And of course, it is covered by Sherwood’s five year warranty – your mark of reliable service for years to come.


    When you’re using big Forstner bits in Aussie hardwoods you need torque, and lots of it. The SWDP-38016-BVS is powered by a three-phase motor that generates more torque than the equivalent single-phase motor. And the Variable Frequency Drive means that the output torque is constant throughout the speed range, allowing you to make the same cuts but at higher speeds and higher feed rates – delivering a finer finish and more efficient workflow.

    …and More Torque!

    On the high-speed belt setting, the speed is electronically controlled between 0 and 3000rpm. Switch to the low-speed setting to gear the whole machine down and quadruple the torque! Ideal for powering massive Forstners with high feed rates, or for drilling into metals.

    Heavy-Duty Precision

    With less than 0.02mm runout at the taper, the Sherwood EVS Drill Press will allow you to drill deep, clean holes without taper or binding. And the size of the hole will match the size of the drill bit – just as it should!

    Keyless Chuck

    No more lost chuck keys! The SWDP-38016-BVS comes with a precision keyless chuck as standard. The capacity of the chuck goes from 1mm right up to 16mm.

    Laser Crosshairs

    Get the workpiece into position quickly and easily by switching on the built-in laser crosshairs, calibrated to remain accurate regardless of the table height or workpiece thickness.


    Drilling in the dark is like doing anything else in the dark. It can be exciting, but at some point you’ll have to turn the light on and see the consequences. With a worklight mounted right under the main casting, the Sherwood EVS Drill Press will help you avoid nasty surprises!
