Bench Drills Information

A Bench Drill is also known as a Drill Press or Pillar Drill (though this term also refers to a larger floorstanding machine which can be found in a separate category on our website). Bench drills are designed to be bolted down to a workbench and they enable components and materials to be drilled with much greater accuracy and precision than can usually be achieved with a handheld drill. As a general rule all entry level bench drills are suitable for working with wood and plastic but if you intend to use the machine for metalworking applications it is worth spending more on something with increased power and more speed settings.

Bench drill safety:

When using any type of drill press you should always ensure you are not wearing any clothing which could become snagged, especially gloves. If the drill bit jams in the material it will try to spin it around at high speed so always clamp the workpiece down and don't attempt to hold it by hand (a drill press vice is commonly used for this purpose). As with all drilling machines, eye protection should be worn at all times.
