About this deal

the clamping bracket tends to fall to the table when you remove the workpiece and can get a bit stuck, requiring a bit of a fiddle to lift it. With that done, it so far (very little use as yet) does seem to do that job exactly as I had hoped - clearly, however, I must confine operations to 'small bursts' to avoid excessive heating of cutting bits, which will be frustrating when working on 2 metre lengths of moulding, for example, which would normally require about 5 minutes per cutting operation. Read more about the condition New: A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item in original retail packaging (where packaging is applicable). A : Hi Tom, I'm not sure what application you have in mind, but the Bosch PBD 40 can't be used for milling in the usual sense of the word as it is only designed to go up or down on the vertical axis.

In that review: I have no idea what he means by having to undo and re-tighten two hex screws to move and lock the drill head? To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.it has a röhm chuck, which at close inspection appears to be much more precisely made than the jacobs 4000 chuck on my bosch psb 850-2 re and pretty much every chuck on a hand held drill i've seen in the consumer-oriented market. It was clear that Bosch had reinvented the pillar drill, as their offering is different from the competition in a number of ways.

Read drilling speeds and depths on its digital display or turn the knob underneath for stepless speed adjustments. We’re very impressed with the machine, which, despite having an official maximum drilling diameter of 40 mm in wood, was more than capable of drilling a 90 mm Forstner bit into hard oak (but always take care when pushing a machien beyond its stated limits). 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. Taking the machine out of its box, I noticed that it felt quite weighty - usually a good sign of a well engineered product.A key objective of our site and telephone support facility is to provide you with all the information you need to make a fully informed decision whenever you make a purchase. It was a 30second job and now the drill bits don't slip and I can get a decent amount of grip on anything I put in the Chuck. A : I checked with Bosch to see if they could provide any more specifics on the drilling capacity of the PBD 40 and they advised that with the drill head at the very top of the column there is 285mm between the front face of the chuck and the bed. The Bosch PBD40 is half the size of that monster - but it has a plunge depth of 90mm - AND it changes speed by turning a knob, as simple as turning up the volume on a radio. The clamp is also a very handy feature but if too much pressure is applied this also pushes the pillar back and can put the bit slightly out of square.

So much for the appalling packaging (I should really have refused reception for it to be sent back directly - sound familiar? Save space when storing thanks to the workbench's easy-to-fold design that also makes it easy to transport. What’s lost from an adjustable baseplate is compensated for by the built-in clamp and adjustable parallel guide fence. Getting used to moving the drill head to set the position is easy, just remember to release the depth stop (or put it high) so that you can then move it to actually drill.With 2 gears, load compensated electronic speed control, laser, LED light and so on its great to work with. They say it's great for drilling accurately and repeatedly, it' s very simple to install, and the speed control is really easy to use. The new PBD 40 Bench Drill from Bosch is the perfect solution for the DIY enthusiast looking for maximum precision coupled with complete ease of use. The same also happened with some metal bits when a touch too much pressure was applied the bit would slip. The PTA 1000 workbench provides flexibility on the job, especially for projects with large workpieces.
