I'm thinking of buying this cheapish tool, does anyone have one and is it ok? Looks quite sturdy from the pik.... i prefer to buy from a physical shop but it's way cheaper online..... cheers
Cheers, can't be any worse than the drill holder i bought once, the entire structure just bent whenever any pressure was applied ! Don't know why they bother making such [email protected] !!I got a cheap drill from B&Q. It was reduced in price, only £50. Very similar to the Taladro It was OK for drilling thin materials, but as above. The quill wandered all over the place especially at maximum extension. I did some mods with copper tape to take up some of the play, That improved it a bit. I managed with it for a year or so, so can't complain.
Maybe because i'll be drilling wood, it'll be more stable cheersI bought a "cheap" pillar drill from Machine Mart a few years ago and whilst it is OK at drilling holes if you want any precision it is awful as the quill wanders all over the place. Whilst it is not the same as the one you mention it may well be a trait of the cheap ones. My 2p worth...
I wish, that one looks just the ticket..... unfortunately where i reside the second hand market is non existent and now with all the new restrictions on mailing to Europe from Blighty it's thrown a spanner in my works, cheers for the link

'..I should really upgrade.'.. that's my mottoThat drill looks better than the lidl to be honest, mainly the table. I've got a lidl one, as mentioned it has a lot of quill run out at max extension and the table is prone to flexing if a lot of pressure is applied. Think it was about 55 quid (cant remember exactly, had it ages), for the price its ok. Its limitations really deter me using that often ..I should really upgrade.
