For precision, this drill press includes an X-Y axis laser and a locking depth-scale.
The B13F's integrated Class III-A laser-beam adjusts along the X-Y axis for pinpoint accuracy when drilling. Easy laser adjustment knobs allow for easy calibration of the drill press.
Additionally, the B13F lets you lock in depths for precise drilling. The depth-scale ring, located at the base of the feed handle, means you can make quick and easy depth adjustments without the need for special tools.
Powerful Induction Motor with Five Speed Settings
The B13F features a 1/3-horsepower induction motor that is powerful enough to drill a wide variety of materials, including wood, aluminum, plastic, mild steel, stainless steel and more. And with five speed settings--680, 1,160, 1,780, 2,380, and 3,000 RPM--you can choose the speed that's best for your material and bit size (the chuck accepts drill bits from 1/16- to 1/2-inch).
Smart Design That's Built to Last
Everything, from the induction motor to the 7-13/16-inch-square cast-iron table, is built for reliable performance. The cleverly designed table moves along a smooth rack-and-pinion gearing system and locks in place for reliable support during operation. An added bonus, the table adjusts 45 degrees to the right or left for angled drilling.
At 67.8 pounds, the B13F is lightweight enough for easy storage and portability. It is backed by Hitachi's two-year warranty.
