I hate to brag, but this mag-drill is better than sliced bread!
This thing is the cats meow of portable drill presses.

I used the 1/2" steel plate with my press bed as a portable drill press.

I have a floor standing 16-speed morse taper drill that has been put to "shame" by this mag-drill.
It has infinite speed control and direct drive.
Goodbye belt slipping!

Sorry, I can't resist.
And no, I can't afford one for myself, it's my bosses!

Cheers,

Greg

Happy New Year to you too Bob.

I'm trying not to think about all the bad that is going on.....
Just got back from fixing up my late father-in-law's grave site with an American Legion marker/flag holder.

I think I can face another day much better after thinking of him.

Thanks for listening,

Greg

Thanks for the expo Greg.
For those who are unfamiliar with a mag drill the base is a heavy electromagnet. So you can clamp them onto most anything steel. Right side up, sideways, even upside down. Get them in place and push the button and it gloms onto the steel and is a very sturdy mount.
That one looks like it's nearly brand new.
They start at like about $1200 for a 1/2" and go up to $2K+ for a 3/4".
I see you have a good sliding clamp there too.
They are the best.
I have two pairs of those - 12" and 16".
I bought them at a machine shop auction a couple of years ago. I bid on a couple of mag drills there too but they went way out of my price range.
These are Bessey. Made in Germany.
Good tools and good tractors - you gotta love em.

The mag-drill is a great tool when you need a portable drill press. But for general metal work in the shop trade in your floor drill press for one of the ubiquitous Taiwanese bench top mills. It will put the mag-drill and drill press to shame on anything you can fit on the table. Half the price or less of the mag-drill and far more versatile. Down side is you can't clamp it onto the frame of your truck or the roof of a building.....

I saw an RF-45 for around $2000.

You have a recommended source, any cheaper?

Unless I strike Texas Tea, I'm borrowing the bosses :)

I"ve used mag drills many times over the years in industrial construction. One thing you always need to keep in mind (especially when drilling upside down)is that electricity supplies the magnetism. If it"s interrupted for any reason, and the machine is not chained or tied, IT WILL BE COMING DOWN..

You should be able to get a basic geared head machine for quite a bit less than that. Best price new is usually Enco although they show up used on eBay and Craig's list all the time. Mine is the Enco branded version of the RF-40 and I paid ~$1200 for it complete with stand, some tooling, and free shipping. Watch their Hot Deals monthly offers - they come up regularly with a discounted price and free shipping. My only regret is I bought the round column model. It's impossible to crank the head up/down without losing position and because of the limited quill travel you need to do that on almost every tool change. The square column is a lot better because it stays in place but also more $$$. Or if you get lucky on CL or eBay you might find something a bit larger for a good price. I found the old Cincinnati on the right of the RF-40 just 5 minutes down the road for $1300 including the rotary table. You might have to put a machine-in-law addition on your shop though Wink I've toyed with the idea of selling the RF-40 now that i have the larger machine but it is so convenient and easy to use for little stuff that I can't part with it.

Hey, TOH! Does that PVC conduit move often enough
that you need to monitor it with the level?

If it's just OCD, you have reached the level of my
wife! (no pun intended - not!)

Alright now,

Maybe in the next life.
I think I'll just enjoy life and take it easy for a while.

Thanks for the info Dan, as always,

Greg

Phase converters are very picky and require an aboslutely level exit path for the electrons Rolling Eyes

Actually the picture was taken the day i was installing the mill. Things were nice and clean - now it looks like this. Level is gone and so is a lot of the floor paint.
