This tool is a Sealey GDM1630FR radial arm pillar drill.


Please remember to lock the table lift before drilling. The rack and pinion is not enough to resist downwards drilling pressure, and rack bending and breakage occurs if the rack is expected to take the load.

Also, make sure that the drill and table area adjusted to ensure that the drill passes through a hole in the table, rather than drilling in to it.


On the 21st August 2016, a replacement rack was fitted, together with new chuck guard and a missing handle knob replaced.
