    Powermatic PM2800B 18" Variable Speed Drill Press

    The Powermatic® 18" Variable Speed Drill Press was designed with the woodworker in mind. Its design has many convenient features that other so-called woodworking drill presses do not offer. The twin LED lights are designed to eliminate cast shadows on the workpiece often produced by conventional lights. The twin lasers will pinpoint the bit entry on the workpiece. The expandable work table is the industry's largest in this class. The single handle speed changer allows you to run the full range of speeds without ever touching a belt, and the front mounted digital readout displays the exact speed the spindle is running. It also features a larger motor than any other drill press in its class for maximum torque.

  • Powered by a heavy duty 1HP, 1Ph, 115/230V TEFC motor for maximum torque
  • Mechanical variable speed allows for full range of speed with no belt changes
  • 6" Quill travel with one revolution of the handle
  • Fence system adjustable for a perfect 90 degree relationship to the table, for rapid stock alignment
  • Adjustable material stop makes repetitive actions accurate and quick
  • A digital RPM readout allows user to optimize the spindle speed to the application
  • Laser guides provide an accurate indication for tool point
  • Keyed chuck makes bit changes easier
  • Reversible handles can be mounted on either side of the machine for more comfortable working of the quill
  • Two independent LED work lights eliminate shadows
  • Work table can be rotated to a full 90 degree position
  • Replaceable square table insert with leveling screws make it flush with the table top
  • Oversize cast iron base for added stability
  • Safety key prevents accidental starting

  • Swing: 18"
  • Spindle Travel: 6"
  • Spindle Distance to Table (max): 27-3/8"
  • Spindle Distance to Base: 46-1/4"
  • Spindle Speed: 250 - 3000 RPM
  • Spindle Taper: MT-2 / JT-3
  • Chuck Size: 5/8"
  • Chuck Distance to Table: 24-1/2"
  • Chuck Distance to Base: 43-13/32"

Very Nice Drill Press

Comments On Mar 24, 2017:I purchased this to replace a 20 yr old Delta 14" unit. This requires assembly and another person to help stand it up. I found it easiest to assemble while still in part of the packaging.
Just so you know, this is made in China.
Has Lasers to mark where center of drill bit should be, but they do not work for me if trying to drill pen blanks. Lasers are adjustable. Unit is always 'on' in that the digital display is always lit (shows all zeroes)
Otherwise, a good unit.
