Hi
I'm looking to buy a pillar drill (my first) but I need a decent chuck to table height as I want to drill tall things ....
Any alerts/recommendations pls?
Thanks

Kent mostly and France the rest
If I knew then what I know now I would definitely get a radial drilling machine, the increase in depth availability I have needed on more than one occasion.

If you are limited for some reason to a bench drill, drill your bench so that it can be mounted sideways so that the head will swing out over your vice.
