In this bench drill, a universal motor replaces traditional belt drives, allowing the continuous adjustment of speed. Users can read the selected speed and drilling depth on the digital display. The drill bit is lowered by a setting wheel, while the position of the hole is indicated by a laser crosshair. An LED light provides good illumination conditions. The V-groove in the base plate ensures a secure position, even for round work pieces like pipes, which are fixed by a quick release clamp.
