PM2800B Drill Press, 1HP 1PH 115/230V

At Powermatic, we have a woodworker’s intuition which drives our design process. We look for every opportunity to raise the workshop experience to new levels of performance and functionality. So when we set out to redefine what it means to use a Powermatic Drill Press, we wanted it to be as easy, and as intuitive as possible; to allow you to focus your creative energy on the tasks that make woodworking so rewarding. The PM2800B is the culmination of our efforts. The PM2800B brings simplicity to your shop. An ease of use that is truly unique. A level of mechanical elegance that you’ll only find in a Powermatic. As with every product Powermatic builds, the PM2800B pushes the limits of design, innovation, and durability.
