A drill press consists of a base, column, table, spindle (or quill), and drill head driven by a motor. The head has a set of 3 handles radiating from a central hub that, when turned, move the spindle and chuck vertically, parallel to the axis of the column. Speed change is achieved by manually moving a belt across a stepped pulley arrangement. The drill press is typically measured in terms of swing. Swing is defined as twice the throat distance, which is the distance from the center of the spindle to the closest edge of the pillar. The Jet JDP-20MF floor drill press has 20-½” swing.
