Drilling Machines

Searching for drilling machines, but yet to find the perfect one for your workshop?

A drilling machine, sometimes called a drill press, is a device that’s designed to produce holes in hard substances. It is typically held in a rotating spindle and fed into the workpiece which is usually clamped in a vice.

A comprehensive range of drilling machines

When shopping for a drill press, there are a number of options available. Do you need a heavy or light duty machine? Have you got room for a floor standing pillar drilling machine or is a bench drill preferable?

To help you make an informed decision, let’s take a look at the two types of drilling machines we supply here at Kendal Tools:

  • Floor standing drilling machines

A pillar drill is a free standing machine that uses a motor to rotate a drill bit and has a long column which stands on the floor. It’s perfect for cutting holes of different diameters into a range of materials, i.e. wood, plastic and metal.

As such, these drilling machines are able to bore precise horizontal holes – offering more accuracy than any handheld tool. And because of their sheer size and stability, they can drill larger materials and produce bigger holes.

  • Bench drilling machines

Where space is at a premium in the workshop, a bench drilling machine is ideal. Basically a smaller version of the pillar drill, it is fixed to a workbench to ensure materials can be drilled safely and efficiently, without taking up valuable floor space.

Although very popular amongst DIY woodworkers or hobbyists who need to drill light pieces of material, the bench drill is very robust and simple to use – making it ideal for school workshops too.

Regardless of which you opt for – be it a pillar or bench drilling machine – we assure you that all our products are priced competitively. So, even if money is tight, you needn’t worry about finding something suitable here at Kendal Tools.
