JET IDP-17 Industrial Drill Press and IDP-22 Drill Press Preview


The drill press is an essential piece to most shops, but many times overlooked when it’s time to upgrade equipment.  JET is out to prove that an old dog can learn new tricks, or maybe it’s just a new dog.  The new JET IDP-17 industrial drill press and IDP-22 drill press include added ergonomics, efficiency, and new features.

The IDP-17 and IDP-22 both come standard with oversize tables which are much appreciated by any fabricator working with larger pieces.  These larger tables also add rotating, 45° tilting, and a quick release clamp.  High quality ball bearings support the spindle to minimize runout.  Both of these JET Drill Presses are CSA/CUS certified

For added safety, both models follow strict guidelines and electrical requirements to be certified by the CSA Group.  When you change the alloys and substrates that you are drilling, then the speed of the drill-bit most likely should change.  JET has made it easy to change spindle speeds rapidly due to the hinged belt and pulley cover along with the quick adjustable motor mount.  Large hand grips were designed with comfort and ergonomics in mind to reduce fatigue on the operator and provide better control.
