Drilling holes is something most of us have done whether as part of a hobby or for our jobs One of the basic tools for the homeowner the handyman or a contractor is an electric drill While hand-held power drills are some of the most used tools in the box they are not necessarily the most accurate When you need an exact hole drilled at a precise angle or maybe a hundred of these holes then the tool you want is a Drill Press The drill press is a larger version of a hand drill with additional features The main difference is the amount of structure with a hand drill it is difficult to be sure that the holes you are drilling are exactly perpendicular to the piece but this is not a problem with the drill press Drill presses are stationary shop tools that are designed to drill precise holes The operating principle is the same as for a hand-held power drill a motor turning a drill bit but the emphasis here is on accuracy as opposed to utility The drill press is not a very large machine but it has quite a bit of flexibility built into it Using the table you can work on a part that is two or three feet long But the table can be moved out of the way if you have parts longer than that You will notice that the table has T-slots on it On most drill presses there are similar T-slots on the base so you can move the table out of the way and you have what is a second table but placed much lower and giving you a lot more room A useful feature your drill press might have is a XY table Normally when you are working on a part you need to be sure the piece is placed on the table in an exact location before you clamp it down
