Item details

The Gunther Hobby Drilling System is perfect for the jeweler or stone cutter who need precision tools to create new designs. The Gunther "Hobby" includes a Multidrill System installed on a premium German Proxxon drill press. The drill press has a very powerful 220 - 240 V-permanent-magnet-motor and a spindle drive via a 3-time band pulley with poly-v-bands. This gives the very important advantage of the almost 6-time torque in the lower speed range (for large drilling diameters). Spindle-sleeve-feed for delicate work, and a practical drill-depth-display with an adjustable end stop, as well a precisely located drill spindle.

The Multidrill System will perform only as good as the drill press that its mounted on. The Hobby system allows you to push the limits of possibility with the Multidrill system by pairing it with a top of the line drill press.

This system comes with the following:

1 - Proxxon Bench Top Drill Press
1 - Drill spindle with automatic core ejector and 7 mm clamping shaft (Note: a 6 mm clapping shaft
can be provided as custom option.)
1 - Pressure hose (7-feet in length) with standard female hose connection
