Powermatic 1792800B PM2800B Drill Press, 1HP 1PH 115/230V

There is only one thing at Powermatic that drives our design process and that’s woodworker’s intuition.  In engineering the Powermatic drill press, convenience and intuitiveness were major components in what we wanted the finished product to be. Mechanical variable speed with no belt changes enables a full range of speed. With adjustable material stop that makes repetitive actions fast and accurate, and an oversized cast iron base for added stability, our efforts were culminated in the PM2800B drill press. Get the most accurate indication for tool point with a state of the art laser guide system and an adjustable fence system for a perfect 90 degree relationship to the table for rapid stock alignment. Sound impressive? We thought so too.
