2-3/16″” Magnetic drill press for tube and pipe applications. No more bulky adaptors to drill holes in tube or pipe. Also ideal for slight curved materials to flat materials as well. An incredibly strong magnet will hold as thin a material as 1/8″ and tube/pipe as small as 3-1/8″. The magnet requires no electrical power so all the power goes to the motor. This is added safety as a result of the unintentional loss of power. The lightweight drill at only 39 lbs. allows you take onsite to the workplace with ease. Partial power is allowed on magnets to enable precise hole alignment or to release one side of the magnet for inspection or debris removal. The drill is equipped with reverse and variable speed ideal for tapping applications. This drill allows you drill your hole with a twist drill bit or annular cutter, then while you are 90 degrees over your hole, simply insert your tap and thread your hole up to 1-3/16″. In under 2 minutes you can drill and tap your hole. Intelligent electronics sense the hardness of the cutting material and deliver the proper feed ratio with the RPM’s the drill is set at. This will ensure maximum life for your HSS and/or carbide annular cutters. Speaking of safety, this drill has an integrated load sensor and will shut off the drill if to much pressure is applied by the operator. There is an indicator/display on the top of the drill to provide feedback to the operator. In addition, a gyroscope sensor turns the drill motor off if it senses dangerous moment in the material, vibration, or adhesion to the magnet to ensure operator safety.
