Tool News – Delta 18" Drill Press
Delta just introduced the new 18" Laser Drill Press (model 18-900L). It features a patent-pending Auto-Tensioning Belt Drive System, an industry first that allows for fast and easy speed changes while maximizing efficiency with consistent belt tension and motor alignment. A simple chart located inside the hood shows bit speeds for each of the 16 possible belt configurations.
Furniture makers, architectural woodworkers, toy makers and machinists alike will find added versatility with a full 6-inch quill stroke that will allow them to drill or mortise through 6-inch by 6-inch lumber. A patented oversized woodworker’s table provides users with an ideal material support surface for larger material. The table bevels up to 90 degrees left and right and tilts forward up to 48 degrees to give the woodworker the ability to drill compound angles. The table also features t-slots for clamping and a removable center insert for through-table drilling and sanding.
