Features

The PM2800B Drill Press, 1HP 1Ph 115/230V helps you to create better-looking final products by drilling uniformly sized holes. It features a 1hp motor that runs off of 15 Amps of power.

An adjustable fence can align the stock to an exact 90 degrees for more precise work. The 1hp drill press' digital readout displays speed in rpm to give you more control. A pair of LED worklights provides double illumination to reduce shadows. The keyless chuck saves you time when you change-out bits. A laser guide shows where the bit point is going to land. The material stop is adjustable so you can set it up for consistent hole depth. Reversible handles make for more comfortable work. The iron base is oversized for greater stability.

Customer Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beast I've only had it a few weeks, but so far I'm very happy. I very much like how easy it is to change speeds. The 6 inches of travel is pretty amazing as well. Putting it together was a chore, this thing is a beast. You definitely need at least 2 people. Overall a great machine, definitely the best a hobbyist like me will ever need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gold For the Heroes I’m a retired 30 year Army Veteran and maintained the rank of Sergeant Major. The highest rank one could achieve as an Enlisted Soldier, besides Command Sergeant Major of the Army. I’ve participated in Desert Shield/Storm, Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), and Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF). In all, I have deployed six times into combat and have seen things that no one should have to witness or go through. I was awarded Bronze Stars three times, one for “Valor” for saving two Soldiers lives. Putting on the digital grey Army uniform everyday gave me a great sense of pride, not only for my country but also for the Family Values that was instilled in me at a young age. The Army is an extended Family for me, there is nothing more gratifying in helping my brothers and sisters. For this, I started to contribute my special skills to the mentally and physically disabled veterans in the Armed Services in my surrounding area, by establishing a workshop to build specific items to assist these “Heroes” in putting their lives back together. In fact, I just ordered the Powermatic 1792800B, Drill Press. I’m sure this drill press will meet all expectations and will deliver quality and professional products for the much needed Veterans and their Families. This product has all the desired features needed to accomplish any project for the beginners and or professionals. I’m sure I will receive many years of usage from this machine to continue my efforts toward Veterans and their needs. My mission requires a dependable, well build but yet inexpensive machine and the Powermatic Drill Press address the vital necessities to keep me engaged with my passion, taking care of our Heroes. I truly appreciate the time and patience you allowed me to express my concerns on this vital subject. God Bless America. Respectfully, Robert Davis (Sergeant Major, Army Ret.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good machine with some small problems. I've had the machine for only a couple of weeks, so I can't review its performance over the long haul, but I will give my initial impressions. Assembly is straightforward, but not easy, even for two people. A friend and I tried lifting the head up onto the column, but found it just too heavy, so we laid the whole thing down on the floor, got the column into the head and then stood it up. Not the most elegant solution, but it worked. Once I had it running I checked the spindle for run-out and found it 3 or 4 thousands out. Not bad, but not great either. The machine is noisier than my old Delta 17-900 and it vibrates more. Probably due to the whirling around of all that variable speed mechanism. The table is large and has a flat underside around the edges, making it easy to clamp things to the table. The fence is nice and adjusts easily, but the fence stop is clumsy and awkward. The table moves up and down easily on the column. The laser seems accurate enough but wasn't adjusted at the factory, but it's easily adjusted in the shop. Don't know that I'll ever use it anyway. The work light is a nice feature as is the digital spindle speed readout. And then there's the depth stop. First of all, that threaded rod design is lame, right off the bat. My old Delta had a FAR superior depth stop design, a ring right around the feed wheel. And, the sliding nut, which is what you use to set the depth, is poorly designed and crudely made, AND, in certain positions, it won't grip the threaded rod at all, meaning you have no depth stop. I called PM customer service and explained the problem and they quickly sent out a new rod and new sliding nuts, but the replacements didn't work any better the the originals, so I'm right back where I started, with a clumsy and outdated depth stop which only works part of the time. I guess I'll call them again, but don't know what they're going to be able to do about it, since it is what it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, runs true, great features ACME sale, all went as expected, no hassles. Easy to assemble, all works perfectly out of the box, no issues. (I did not check the Product Support rating above, as I did not have to deal with ACME after the initial sale.) I will start with ACME for all future machinery purchases. Thank you.
