  • milwaukee electromagnetic drill

    this is a beast of a drill. weighs in around 90# with its massive 11.5 amp 2 speed gear box and magnetic base. the great thing is the ability to tap and instant reversing without stopping. the 2 speed gear box then also has a variable speed controller from 0 rpm - 750 rpm. the magnetic base will hold over 1600# pressure at the drill point using a 3/4'' chuck or #3 taper.

    use it today to do precision drilling and tapping on 1.5'' square tubing using 3/8'' x 24 tpi grade 5 bolts. not much of a challenge for the monster drill.

    Hey Rick in that first photo were you drilling on the ceiliing or is the photo 180 deg out?
    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

      both photos, drilling and tapping are horizontal position. fortunately the magnetic base has an adjustable shoe. it allows for about 1'' of movement once magnetized. otherwise it would be next to impossible to align a hole in the horizontal position with the weight of the drill and base.

      i have another pretty basic non magnetic setup for drilling pipe. it chains to a pipe, very similar to a ridgid chain vise and uses a 1/2'' h.d. drill motor. i use to use this for the job i just did, but not tapping and no where as precision.
