The DELTA 15-232 6 Speed Drill Press includes a 3/4 HP single-phase motor that has a 24-volt push-button, magnetic starter. It provides six speeds varying from 425 to 5500 RPM, and is able to all drill jobs on different materials. The drill maintains proper belt tension mechanically so you’ll be able to all the time have full power transmission. A snubber feature holds speed settings constant no matter the load conditions. The quill is large with a two-inch diameter, and a long quill shuttle allows you to do deep-hole jobs such as skip and gang drilling. The drill features extra-large spindle bearings “6 PLUS 6” and “VS6” spindle and spindle pulleys which might be supported by lubricated-for-life ball bearings. The table tilts 90 degrees in both directions and measures 11 x 14 inches. Included is the table, motor and controls, belt and pulley guard, belt and motor pulley, self-locking depth stop, depth gauge, self-ejecting chuck key.
Extra-large spindle bearings 6 PLUS 6 and VS6 spindle and spindle pulley are supported by four over-sized, pre-loaded, lubricated-for-life ball bearings. Massive quill is a full 2-inch diameter.
Wide, test-proven speed range gives a true 10-to-1 speed ratio.
Quick belt tension release is provided by the pivoting motor mounting plate which has a reverse, self-locking taper at the spring-loaded, rubber-tipped plunger that quickly restores correct belt tension
Extra-long quill shuttle gives the extra depth you want for deep-hole jobs like skip and gang drilling.
