Titan Drill Press
10 Aug 2013
By kevkits

"Excellent bit of kit for the price, good value for money. Only minor nuisance is getting a vice to fit it, I haven't got one yet and may have to design/build one.
Works well, speed easily altered, no problems at all with chuck falling as others have experienced, had for 2 months now and no complaints.

Just the job!

"A good entry-level pillar drill for small DIY tasks. It has everything I need in a pillar drill and has made drilling straight holes a doddle! I have been using it to fix an old electric guitar, but can see myself using it on all sorts of future jobs."

"Bought this to work mainly with wood, very impressed so far. Was a dubious at first but has worked well producing accurate and neat holes without fail. Great value considering the free postage as well, its a heavy item."

Titan Bench Drill

"I did some voluntary work to repair a damaged gate and I had to ask a friend to use his pillar drill to complete the Task. When the task was finished I was given an envelope which to my suprise contained money I have always wanted an accurate pillar drill which makes life so easy when you need to do accurate work this tool meets all those objectives and now takes pride of place in my workshop I should have bought one years ago like the many tools I have purchased at bargain prices from Screwfix since retirement."

Buy a more expensive model

"Gears seized up after little use and require regular greasing. Return spring failed also after little use. Spindle has too much play. Good if you are on a budget and only require for the odd job and are not fussy about tight tolerances or the cleanest of finishes."

Disappointing
4 Apr 2011
By britkiwi
, Exeter
"Lack of information on what speed to use for what job. Chuck insecure on a taper hold; chuck comes away under heavier loads. Vibration leads to inaccurate location with smaller size bits. Adjustable table not rigid enough when applying heavier loads leading to further inaccuracies in locating hole."

Innacurate and poor drill
13 Jul 2012
By BoingsaidZebadee
, Cornwall
"Massive visable runout on the chuck, which I reseated 3 times to check. A huge chunk out of one of the drive pulleys which unbalanced the drill! The vibtation was almost as bad as a wacker plate. A 3mm brad point bit produced a 4.5mm Triangular hole in a light hardwood sheet! Staff where very helpfull, (as always) and provided a refund with no fuss."
