Anyone have any knowledge of Nu-Tool machines?

I'm following a CH10 bench drill on flea-bay but I've never owned a nu-tool so Im not sure on reliability or quality etc

Ebay item number for those interested 170279622431

Hi Lee, I had something similar to this years ago, mine came from B&Q and I found it to be underpowered. A 35mm forstener bit would slow and stall the drill, even in softwood. It was fine with smaller bits. Al

I have a Nu-tool five speed drill press model 13g it has a half hp motor, the drill was manufactured in Tiawan in 1986 I have owned it since new, and it has performed without any trouble , the largest bit I use in is a 3/1/8 in forstner bit , you have to take care and make shore you hold the wood securely,,,,,,,,yes with that bit in I can stall the  drill, I would not say that it is as accurate as a good quality english manufactured drill press  but I have managed with it  for the past 22 years so I have no complaints.

Hi Lee

I have the same machine under the name Titan and its the 9 speed. Its a lovely machine and is all that I would need for my work. Once set up it works flawlessly.

Mine cost £35 new from Lidls so, if yours goes to high, wait for the shops to sell again soon.

All the manufacturers who produce these type of tool import a similar version and finish to there desired standard, B&Q, NuTool Lidle are all similar machines, as to Nutool i have a Belt & Disc sander which is great, Baz Had the APTC Yellow version which if i remember he thought was lousey.

I would go for it if the price isnt too high.

Lee What you may find is that most machines are manufactured in the far east, including record (I dont know about sealy). Al

OK guys I've got the NuTool drill, thought I'd get it to see how it goes. I'll use it for a few months then may upgrade to a more expensive one, but this NuTool drill will get me by just fine for now.

paid £62 for it.

Hi all, I have had a Nu Tool CH10 for about 15 or so years now and the plastic support for the guard broke but I made a stronger replacement from tuffnel. Then the chuck was rubbish so I bought a larger one which I eventually got running true. But it has served me well but is now under powered for me so I am looking to buy the Ryobi 5530L as mentioned on a previous posting.    J.Kinch
