About this deal

The laser cross is pretty accurate, and accurate enough for quickly locating where to put the wood or center punched metal and then make fine adjustments to make sure the bit goes in the right place. So much for the appalling packaging (I should really have refused reception for it to be sent back directly - sound familiar?

in the box, the product is nicely presented and i was able to set it up and start using it immediately without reading the instructions. When you say "large" forstners, what diameter do you mean by that (a large forstner to me is 40mm+).The Bosch PBD 40 is a powerful and precise bench mounting pillar drill with a digital display of drilling speed and drilling depth. All you need to do is attached the base plate to the drill, tighten up the allen screw, and you're good to go. The same also happened with some metal bits when a touch too much pressure was applied the bit would slip. He now has a Nova Voyager, but kept his Bosch, because why not - for most tasks it’s faster to set up than a basic drill press with belts. I was looking at drills for a year, and was sceptical to drop twice as much money on this rather than a bog standard pillar drill.

You can consent to the use of such technologies by using the “Accept” button or manage your options using the “Customise” button. We’re very impressed with the machine, which, despite having an official maximum drilling diameter of 40 mm in wood, was more than capable of drilling a 90 mm Forstner bit into hard oak (but always take care when pushing a machien beyond its stated limits). The biggest problem I see with large bits is the potential for uneven cutting pressure around the perimeter of the bit causing the lighter construction of the column and drill head mounting to tweak slightly, the results should be obvious especially at the start of a cut.These trackers help us to provide a personalized user experience by improving the quality of your preference management options, and by enabling the interaction with external networks and platforms. We will exchange or refund within the first 30 days if a manufacturers fault is found with this product. Every small bench top drill press I have seen requires the DP to clamped or bolted down, I have to wonder if these reviewers have ever reviewed / used a similar sized standard DP? Some slight movement of drill chuck when drill engages work but less than many i have used in the past. Quiet enough to have a conversation or listen to music (obviously not recommended for safety reasons, you should be paying attention to your tool and material), and likely won't disturb other people.

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. Likewise, the plastic locking ring on the chuck is very well protected and will most likely last the life of the drill press because of that.These trackers enable basic interactions and functionalities that allow you to access selected features of our service and facilitate your communication with us.
