FULL-FEATURED 17-INCH DRILL PRESS WITH 5
INCHES OF SPINDLE TRAVEL
LaVergne, TN – When JET® developed
their new 17” Drill Press (JDP-17), they combined superior design with features
that every woodworker needs. This drill press is designed to perform.
The spindle travels a full 5” with one revolution
of the handle. The integrated depth stop makes repetitive drilling quick and
easy, while the laser etched downfeed scale is an easy-to-see method of
determining drilling depth.
The large 14” x 19” precision ground work table
features twin T-slots and four table slots to accommodate jigs and other accessories.
The table has a tilt adjustment of 90° left and right. The edge of the table is
specifically designed to make clamping easy.
JET’s exclusive Xacta-X laser
system easily identifies the drill center on workpieces. The built-in, pivoting
LED work light provides direct light while reducing shadows. The drill press is anchored by a large cast
iron base for rigidity and stability.
“We set out to design and build a drill press
that would meet the demands of woodworkers,” said Joan Duvall, Director of
Product Management – Wood.
The drill press provides one-handed belt
tensioning for quick and easy speed changes. The new belt tensioning system
involves a cylinder stationed between the belt pulleys. The user simply loosens the cylinder’s head and
slides it back to release belt tension. Once
the belts are readjusted to the desired speed, the cylinder is moved back into
place and tightened.
The 16-speed drill press is powered by a ¾
HP, single phase, 115 volt, TEFC motor with a poly-v belt drive system to reduce
vibration while providing a smooth transfer of power. The 6.8 amp motor is designed to be used with
a 15-amp rated electrical outlet. This drill press is CSA certified.
