Large Magnetic Based Drill Hire (50mm)

Magnetic Base Drill Presses are commonly used for drilling fixing holes or holes for services in steel beams or columns. Universal beams UBs and Universal Columns UCs and other heavy duty steelwork can be drilled with relative ease. The magnetic base is clamps securely on to steel at any angle from horizontal to vertical and even upside down (Appropriate safety measures should be used if cutting upside down). For vertical and upside down cutting with the magnetic drill base, lubricating gel or paste should be used instead of normal cutting oil.

Normal twist drills can be used for smaller holes but the main advantage of these machines is the capacity to cut large diameter holes using broach cutters. Specially designed cutters in the magnetic drill press mill a circle through the steel leaving a hole and a round "slug". These annular cutters only cut material at the periphery of the hole as opposed to normal drills that cut the entire hole in to swarf. This results in less time and energy being required to cut large diameter holes.
