Description

I absolutely love it and wish I had spent the money years ago as it would have made my life much easier a long time ago. If the item comes direct from a manufacturer, it may be delivered in non-retail packaging, such as a plain or unprinted box or plastic bag. One thing I would point out is I have to tighten the pillar lock as hard as I can to prevent any wobble. The perfect speed adjustments, and it''s easy to dial in exactly what you need from 200 to 3,000 rpm.

The Chuck is easy to use, lock and unlock but - my assessment of what happened - prolongued use, and thus Bit heat at high (max) revs, doing fairly tough demanding work, causes sufficient expansion of BOTH the Chuck and the Bit to 'fuse' to a minor extent - certainly enough to prevent easy, 'designed' release of the Bit once unlocked. What gives this drill an advantage for me is the fact that apart from the 90mm travel, if you release the stop, the head will continue down, giving you the ability to drill from the top of the column to the bed. Some manufacturers will offer a direct repair or replacement service (as applicable) which will often resolve your problem more quickly. I've not had this fine machine a week yet so I can't comment on its longevity but it does have a three year warranty. Chuck play:The chuck does have a bit of play, meaning it can move very slightly sideways if I push it.as real users, posing a threat to a site’s security, so the site sometimes runs random security checks. 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 Bosch PBD 40 is a powerful and precise bench mounting pillar drill with a digital display of drilling speed and drilling depth. IMHO the lack of strength compared to a lump of cast iron is far outweighed by the features of this nifty DP with variable speed, fabulous digital depth readout and quick setup. 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.

For most jobs it seems to grip the bit just fine but when fitted with a 35mm forstner bit, and drilling into 18mm ply the bit had a tendency to slip in the Chuck which is less than ideal.The laser marker is accurate and the power of the unit seems more than adequate for a DIYer like me.
