Nova Voyage DVR Drill Press 58000 Review:
The most common question which comes up when it comes to buying a new drill press is what type of material do I need?
There are two types of drill presses available today; steel and aluminum. Steel drills have been around longer than any other type, but they aren’t cheap. Aluminum drills are cheaper, but not necessarily better quality or durable.
What’s the best choice for me?
There are many advantages to choosing an aluminum drill press over a steel one. For starters, aluminum is lighter than steel and therefore easier to move around your shop. Additionally, aluminum is stronger than steel and thus less likely to break if dropped from time to time. Finally, aluminum is much more affordable than steel. You will pay $200-$300 for a good quality drill press made out of high grade alloy (aluminum). A lower quality drill press might cost you $100.
If you want to save money, then steel is probably the way to go. However, if you’re looking for a drill press with a long history of use and durability, then aluminum may be just right for your needs. The cheaper price tag is just a nice bonus.
How to Use a Drill Press?
A drill press is a stationary power tool used for drilling holes in different materials like wood, plastic, and metal. The multiple uses of a drill press range from carpentry to manufacturing. Drilling holes in pieces of wood or metal is required when building model cars, houses, or buildings. Larger drill presses are used in factories to create holes in metal pieces for various reasons. A drill press is versatile because it can drill bits of various sizes. This type of tool is different from a hand drill in that it stays in one place while the material being drilled spins on a drill press table. A drill press is preferred when drilling holes in metal or wood because it holds the material steady and allows the user to place the hole exactly where it is needed. A drill press has two handles, also called triggers, that are used to clamp down on the material to be drilled. The two handles are located on top of the drill press.
How to Use a Drill Press to Cut Holes in Wood
A drill press is a handy tool to have in your workshop for drilling holes in all types of materials like wood, metal, and plastic. Using a drill press to make holes in wood projects is an easy task once you know how. It is important to choose the correct type of bit for the type of material you are drilling into. For example, you should select a wood-boring drill bit for drilling in wood and a brass drill bit for drilling into metal.
Drilling in a straight line is easier with a drill press, but you can still use one to drill holes at an angle.
