Latest Good Woodworking arrived today.  Not read it but scanned through the enclosed Record catalogue.
 
On page 28 there is a "New" Compact Drill Stand with an angled drilling facility.  Try as I might, I cannot understand how this works.  It may be that I am a bit dim.  If so, please enlighten me.
 
It seems to me that as the drill (and bit) can only move in a vertical direction then any angling of the drill, no matter how acute, will have the effect of trying to push the drill into the material sideways.  Even using a rotary rasp type of drill you would produce an elongated hole - wouldn't you?
 
Have Record got it wrong or is it me?

PS They have got it wrong on page 79.  The Maxi-2 lathe, usually £2299.99 is bundled with an outrigger worth £149.99 for the very bargain price of £399.99!!!!!!!!!!  Whoa!............get to the back of the queue - I was here first

Just thinking about this, would it be the same as having the base plate moving in the same way?
 
I understand what your saying. Its like when you pull the stand's handle down the drill would want to move down as well but not in (if that sounds right)

In regards to the lathe, you must remember that VAT is now going to be 500%

I agree about the drill press, it could only work if the whole rack and pinion moved to an angle with the base, but you know what they say "dead clever these chinese"

I noticed another mistake in the bandsaw section - if I recall correctly, the spec. for one of the large Startrite machines read that it weighs only 70g or something!!
 
I was interested to see that they now offer spare bobbins for their bobbin sander (although, they're not yet on their website). I'm hoping these ones might fit my Jet BOS-5... I've e-mailed them for more information but, I'm not holding my breath. Their model looks a lot like the cheaper SIPs and Charnwoods, whose bobbins are not compatible with the Jet/Axminster model, or so I've been told.
 
Still, £23.99 for a 75mm bobbin is a lot cheaper than what Axminster are asking!!

The drill press is still incorrect, and can't work from how the picture in the catalogue shows the angle of the drill????
 
 George
 P/S The lathe price can be corrected  and any other printing errors, but how you change the direction of the drill I cannot see, perhaps it is me that's thick.

Your not thick George, its baffling all of us at the moment...
Its a shame Record haven't updated their website so others could get to see what were all looking at..they may not have the new brochure.
 
No doubt all will be revealed by Record

Hi Guys
 
It is on the Record web site - here look at the Summer promotional catalogue - page 28.
 
I have emailed Record asking how the drill stand is supposed to work.  I will get back to you when I get a reply.

Baz - Get yer coat off again - you are absolutely right!
 
Record has responded very promptly to my email as follows:
 
"It purpose is so that you can mill with it however you will need to hand
feed the wood through

Hope this helps

Many thanks

Lee"

Now we all know.
 
Richard
