Whether you need a bench top or floor model drill press, the advantages a stationary drill press has over a hand-held drill are indisputable. Less effort is required to apply the drill to the workpiece and the movement of the chuck and spindle gives you considerable mechanical advantage. These machines also allow a vise or a clamp to position and lock the material you are drilling in place, making it much more secure. Also, the angle of the spindle is fixed in relation to the table, allowing holes to be drilled precisely. If you are looking for a production model drill press, consider an Ellis model. Ellis has been in business for 60 years and their drill presses are designed for high volume shop work.

Floor drill presses tend to be heavier duty alternatives to bench top models. Floor models typically have a larger drilling capacity and are better suited for high volume work. If you are looking for a drill press that can be used continuously throughout a day, a production floor press is your best option. These large machines will drill though wood and metal with the ease and precision that cheaper options can't match.

A common misconception with bench drill presses is that they are all downsized versions of floor models. There are some light-duty models, but there are also benchtop drill presses that can handle similar materials and capacities as floor mount models. These bench mount models are great for do-it-yourselfers looking for a compact drill press that won't take up valuable floor space, and they're also able to keep up with the demands of professionals as well.

HISTORY OF THE DRILL PRESS: Since its introduction over two centuries ago, the drill press has become an indispensable asset in production, repair, home and manufacturing shops world wide. Originally developed for metal working, drill presses offered unprecedented convenience to blacksmiths and manufacturers whom frequently bored a variety of holes, some of which were impossible to do by hand. The drill press eventually found its way into wood shops, plants, factories and pattern shops where their precision and stability offered tremendous benefits to their work. Boring holes for traditional spindle legged chairs, tables and benches could be done with absolute precision and repeatability in the fraction of the time. Metal workers, particularly machine shops, foundries and plants found the drill press an asset to almost every application, boring castings for bearings, screw holes, pin holes, even tapping is accomplished quickly and easily without worry of stripping the threads with the proper tapping head. Drill presses of today offer more versatility than ever. Units come equipped with step pulleys, Reeves Drive systems, VFD controllers, inverters, gear heads and many more. Units can be purchased with production style tables with multiple heads, standard cast type tables, woodworkers style tables, and many, many more potions than can be listed.
