Product Overview

Details

This PM2800B Drill Press was designed with the woodworker in mind. The design has many convenient features that other so called woodworking drill presses do not offer. The twin LED lights are designed to not cast shadows on the work piece and twin lasers help to pinpoint exactly on the work piece. The expandable work table is the largest in the industry and class. The single handle speed change allows you to run the full range of speeds without ever touching a belt. The front-mounted digital readout displays the exact speed of the running spindle. Also features a larger motor than any other drill press in its class - convenient for handling the heaviest jobs.
Features:
  • Mechanical variable-speed allows for full range of speed with no belt changes
  • 6 in. of quill travel with just one revolution of the handle
  • Fence system is adjustable for a perfect 90 degree angle to the table
  • Adjustable material stop makes repetitive actions accurate and quick
  • A digital RPM readout meter allows users to optimize the spindle speed to the application
  • Laser guides provide an accurate indication for tool point of entry
  • Easy to use keyless chuck makes bit changes fast and simple
  • Reversible handles can be mounted on either side of the machine to provide more comfort when working the quill
  • Two independent LED work lights eliminate shadows and provide a clearer view of the work piece
  • Work table can be rotated a full 90 degrees to adjust to application and operation
  • Replaceable square table insert with leveling screws make it flush with table top
  • Oversized cast iron base for added stability and security
  • Safety key prevents accidental unit starts for enhanced safety
Includes:
  • PM2800B 115/230V 1 HP 1-Phase 18 in. Variable-Speed Drill Press - 1792800B

    • A:

      My drill press is stamped "Made in China," which was a little disappointing since the other Powermatic tools I have were at least made in the free country of Taiwan rather than the PRC. Still it seems to be a quality machine.
