About this deal

I've lost enormous amounts of sleep reading about chuck wobble on drills but one thing i have recently discovered is that none of my drill bits are perfectly straight either. Just to add to that excellent reply, I would say the biggest plus for me is the ability to drill to the "exact" same depth every time with different bit and timber changes using that big clear and almost instant setup function of the inbuilt digital depth gauge. There is little side to side movement in the drill shaft, and the movement in chuck spindle is horrendous. Likewise the two white led lights only light the workpiece from one side, not good if the workpiece is not totally flat and they are also not very bright.

When I had a business I purchased a heavy-weight, geared (not belt) drive unit for that kind of work. That is, drill the first part of the hole to say 80mm depth, and then move the head down with the bit registered at the top of the hole, and then complete the drilling (for say another 20-30mm). The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products.I like the simple but practical parallel bar which is easy to move and has a flat upright which means you can clamp to it in addition to using the hold down clamp.

Integrated laser to assist with drilling for easy, precise drilling at exactly the required position. Whether by design or not, it probably helps more than it hinders, given my experience of bits never being perfectly straight either. To claim the full warranty a registration form may need to be completed - please check the paperwork enclosed with this product when purchased.On the other hand, the Bosch's clear speed readout, ease of setting exact, repeatable speeds and the excellent laser cross hairs suit my purposes very well - they may not be what everyone needs. The reason I gave it a lower value for money is that it is quite noisy and I would have thought for the money this could be better. The automatic retightening drill chuck maintains a strong clamping force even during tough projects.

What’s lost from an adjustable baseplate is compensated for by the built-in clamp and adjustable parallel guide fence. It is compatible with the PBD 40 bench drill, PCM mitre saws, and the AdvancedTableCut 52 table saw, which can be attached directly with the universal tool holder included with this saw stand. as real users, posing a threat to a site’s security, so the site sometimes runs random security checks. With 2 gears, load compensated electronic speed control, laser, LED light and so on its great to work with.

However in use, it works well, and as you can see from the attached video, on my drill the run out accuracy is around 0.

My only "complaint" would be that the wheel is not as efficient as a 4 handled star, in that if you are drilling deep you have to reposition to continue. Its roller support makes it easy to slide materials towards and away from the tool when sawing lengthwise while its ball support makes it simple to turn workpieces to the ideal angle for cutting. This took another week to arrive and once again the bosch seal had been broken but the drill and packaging looked ok so i accepted it. I lock the column up tight with the lever to remove any horizontal movement, I'd have to really lay into / abuse that lever for no good reason to have a chance of breaking / stripping it.The depth guage is great, the electronic speed control works well, the clamp is useful and the size, reach, depth and chuck size all adequate. Maybe they need more power, holes of accurate and repeatable depth, or to make holes using larger Forstner bits than their power drill can handle.
