Time To Drill:

Recommended Posts

Bought a magnetic drill a couple of months ago so finally broke down and spent the money for the bits. These are all "Jancy" brand, (USA) and 2" depth of cut. Should last a good long time. I wanted to go with the "Rotobroach" series from Hougen but the cost for the same set was a couple hundred dollars more and no better in quality, (my opinion).

The drill is a 505 series "Hougen". It has coolant feed available through the spindle via an external pressure bottle. That should help the bits to stay sharp a good long time.

Now I need to get the special "body bound bolts" for locating the air ride suspension under my daughters truck as my excuses for putting the truck off are running thin.......

I debated heavily between this one and the Milwaukee brand I was looking at as per Thads' suggestion. This drill is considerably lighter in weight, and is two speed. I really like the option of hooking a bug sprayer up to it to use coolant when drilling in the horizontal position.

The next purchase for this thing is to be a reversable tapping head. Good friend of mine is a tool and cutter grinder and will make me the correct size broaches for any size hole I will need.

I'll tell you it literally "walks" through mild steel.

Thanks,

Rob

I have a drill exactly like that except mine's is a quadruplex instead of a Powerglide. I get my bits at Dollar General.

Thanks for posting that. I now have a better understanding of how to use this tool and properly match the speed to the effective hardness of the baseplate material in which I am attempting to bore a hole into. It should serve to extend the service life of the multipoint tool in current use.
