Please note: The handpiece pictured in the photo is not included. You must supply your own handpiece.
The Foredom DP30 is designed for use with the Foredom 30, 30H, 44, 44T and 44HT handpieces matched with any Foredom flex shaft machine. The DP30 securely holds any of these handpieces in a vertical position for drilling straight accurate holes to specified depths. This Drill Press is ideal for modeling, spot facing, countersinking and reaming in wood, wax, plastic, metal, glass and gemstone.
For drilling, generally high speed steel, carbide steel and diamond drills are most often used. Whatever accessory you use, let the speed of the tool do the work. Too much feeding pressure can damage or break you drill, and may cause loss of control. Twist drills are often used for drilling holes in metals, woods and plastics. On work items with rounded surfaces such as rods, it is a good idea to centerpunch a starting hole to keep the tip of the drill from "walking" or wandering from the desired starting point. When drilling, lift the drill up and down frequently to clear away dust and debris.
