New Radial Arm Drill Press Machines

Need a huge drilling machine to put holes in large parts or hard to reach places? Then a Radial Arm Drill Press is the machine for you. We have models large enough to reach 62 inches (1580mm) and drill a 2 1/2 inch (63mm hole). Scroll down to see many different sizes from two different manufacturers. Most ACRA and JET models are in stock. The ACRA radial arm machines are less expensive. Both are manufactured in Taiwan.

New to drill presses? A drill press is used to cut round holes into or through metal, wood, or other materials. Radial Arm models are for large capacity work. Drilling machines use a twist drill tool that has cutting edges at its point. This cutting tool is held in the drill press by a chuck or Morse taper and is rotated and fed into the workpiece. Drilling machines may be used to perform other operations such as countersinking, boring, counterboring, spot facing, reaming, and tapping (threading). Drill press operators must know how to set up the work, set speed and feed, and provide coolant/lubricant. Want to learn more about drilling techniques?

These machines are designed for drilling, tapping and reaming large size parts. The clamping table is very useful for clamping parts in position or for mounting fixtures and jigs to locate your parts. Heavy duty frame eliminates vibration. The headstock gears are made of hardened and ground alloy steel. The spindle is hardened and precision ground to be perfectly balanced and rigidly mounted on three precision radial antifriction bearings, with two axial bearings for thrust loads. The drilling spindle position is adjustable on a scale using a dial with a positive stop. The traversing head moves on the finely ground guide-ways. Upper guide-way is flat and lower guide way is dovetail type. The cooland system tank is inside the base of the machine with used coolant directed back into the tank. Quality manufactured in Taiwan.

JET Radial Arm Drill Press Features

The power train gears and spline shaft are made of the finest quality, heat treated and ground nickel-chrome steel, giving extra strength and smoothness to high torque loads The spindle is made of the finest case hardened steel for extra strength and wear The spindle is supported by double row taper roller and thrust ball bearings at the nose, with thrust and radial axis bearings at the top. The spindle is built to withstand exceptionally heavy drilling and boring loads and to insure maximum accuracy. Push button controls are all reduced to 110 Volts. Electrical circuits are located in the built-in control box at the rear of the arm. This keeps the contols dust and humidity free while making them easily accessible for maintenance. Entire frame is made of Meehanite and high tensile strength cast iron to handle the heaviest of jobs. Built in work light. Coolant pump. Tool kit. Box table.

Extra features included for models J-1100R, J-1230R and J-1600R:
