Baileigh's DP-1250VS heavy duty drill press has a wide column for extra support to reduce flexing during heavy drilling sessions at maximum capacity, being 1-1/4" diameter mild steel. This machine has a powerful inverter driven head that is controlled through a speed potentiometer dial and digital read out for displaying actual quill RPM. This variable speed drill press features a quality auto reversing tap feature and uses a heavy #4 Morse Taper to transfer the power from the spindle to the quill. To further the rigidity the base and table are made of a heavy casting with very large T-Slots to secure vise or material. The base includes a powerful coolant system that is sprayed out at the quill behind a quality splash and safety guard. The coolant system increases drill bit and tap life. This heavy duty, variable speed, floor drill press is commonly in stock for quick shipments. It offers any machinist or fabricator a great value for the investment.
