Ecoplus TS-20 Drill Press

Description:

A drill press is a style of drill that may be mounted on a stand or bolted to the floor or workbench.

Major components include a base, column (or pillar), adjustable table, spindle, chuck, and drill head, usually driven by an electric motor. The head has a set of three handles radiating from a central hub that are turned to move the spindle and chuck vertically.

Safety

  • Use always glasses and if you're drilling metal, gloves are required.
  • The ro­tation of the drill bit may try to spin the wood or metal workpiece, so it must be clamped to the worktable.

How to use

  • Tool to drill wood, metal and plastic
  • One speed. You don't need to set the speed.
  • Fit the Bit. Open the chuck, slide in the bit, snug the chuck by hand around the bit’s shaft, then tighten.
  • Adjust the Table. Release the clamping lever on the back of the platform and turn the crank on the right side to adjust the table height.
  • Gauging the Depth.
  • Secure the Workpiece with clamps
  • Drill
  • Drilling.

Advantages

A drill press has a number of advantages over a hand-held drill:

  • Less effort is required to apply the drill to the workpiece.
  • The movement of the chuck and spindle is by a lever working on a rack and pinion, which gives the operator considerable mechanical advantage
  • The table allows a vise or clamp to be used to position and restrain the work, making the operation much more secure
  • The angle of the spindle is fixed relative to the table, allowing holes to be drilled accurately and consistently
  • Drill presses are almost always equipped with more powerful motors compared to hand-held drills. This enables larger drill bits to be used and also speeds up drilling with smaller bits.
