This innovative drill press came about as a personal project of the President of Grizzly Industrial. He wanted the convenience of a gearhead drill press with variable speed, combined with a cross-slide table with longitudinal and vertical power feed. He also sought features like a digital spindle speed readout, long spindle throw, coarse and fine downfeed controls, and forward/reversing ability.
This had not been done before, so several meetings were held with engineers, special parts were made, and voila! We had a variable-speed gearhead drill press with X- and Z-axis table powerfeed, utilizing a 3-phase motor that runs on single-phase power!
This drill press started as a personal project for the President's home workshop, but after appreciating its unique features more and more, he made it available to the public for those also in search of a truly high-end, fully-loaded drill press.
