Frequently Asked Questions
What to do in case of drill press failure?
Assuming that the selected drill press is supplied with the correct power supply and is the correct choice for the desired hole size, the first thing to check is the status of the wiring connections. Users should also check & clean dirt or dust accumulated on the motor causing heating up of the motor. Motors, step pulley & belt drive should also be lubricated regularly for smooth operation. Users should take care that they do not run the drilling machines in a workpiece not suitable for drilling according to the product's operating manual. They should also check for wear & tear on the drill press parts.
How can users select the right drill press for their needs?
Firstly, the users should measure the electrical supply specifications required for powering the drill press. Depending upon the workpiece & material thickness, the required output power of the drill press should be calculated. The customers should take note of the construction, type of motor used and the chuck size available before buying the unit. The safety and controlling mechanisms should also be paid attention to while selecting the right drill press. The location of the applications also matters a lot while choosing the correct drill press.
What other variants of drill presses are supplied by Raptor Supplies?
Raptor Supplies offers various variants of drill presses, such as milling and drilling machines, magnetic drill presses and handheld electric drills. Magnetic drill presses are also known as mag drills, feature a magnetic base for sticking to ferrous metal surfaces & holding the drills in position while making holes in structural steel, I-beams, pipes and other metal workpieces. Milling & drilling machines are used to both drill out holes in workpieces and remove the extruded material from those holes. Handheld electric drills are ideal for creating holes in any position. They can fit in compact spaces due to their small size. These handheld drills can be of two types: corded and cordless. The corded variant can be used for a long time while maintaining constant power while the cordless variant operates in locations without electrical power access and eliminates the tripping hazard of a cord.
What accessories are compatible with the bench drill presses?
Raptor Supplies can deliver a wide range of accessories that fit into the bench drill presses and other types of drill presses to provide ease of use & safe operation.

Drill press guards & protection plates offer protection to drill press operators against injuries by providing a barrier near the bit to deflect chips and debris. We also supply replacement parts like motors, shaft arbours, chucks, belts & drill bits for replacing faulty or worn out parts of a bench drill press.
