Drill presses are stationary power tools mounted on workbenches, stands, or bolted on the floor designed to make precise round holes on wood and metals. These presses consist of a base, column, adjustable table, chuck, spindle, and an electric motor that drives the drill head. Pedestal drill presses are fastened on the floor and are generally more powerful and are ideal for heavy-duty drilling. Benchtop drill presses, on the other hand, can be mounted on worktables or benches and have a degree of portability. Drill presses are commonly used in woodworking, metalworking, machine tool fabrication, and construction applications.
