20" Gear Head Drill Press A Baileigh DP-1500G gear head drill press is rigidly designed for heavy drilling. The column is a massive 5-1/2" diameter to help reduce possible flexing during heavy feeds at maximum capacity, which is 1-1/2" through mild steel. The base and table are made from a heavy casting and both have large T-slots to ensure a proper hold of the material being drilled. The DP-1500G has a heavy industrial grade gear system that allows for an array of speeds to work with many different materials for drilling and tapping. To properly transfer the power from the gear head drill press to the material we have as standard a # 4 Morse Taper. The DP-1500G comes standard with a coolant system, guarding, a chuck and a halogen light. This Baileigh Industrial drill press offers a lot of power at a very economical value to the machine shop or fabrication shop owner.
