Ooohhhh...shiny.

O.k......now what does the spindle look like ?

I mean to say (write ?) morse taper, straight shank (large b&d/Milwaukee)
or some other style ?

This thing got power feed ?

Maybe hook the I-pod up to the U.S.B. port on the side......

It has the standard Jancy arbor that takes the 3/4" shank of the annular cutters, with 2 set screws set at 90 degrees from each other.

Always wanted one of those(mag-drill) but couldn't justify one for how little I'd use it. Sure is nice.

If he who has the most tools in the end wins, I think Jack will be crowned the victor. Good looking drill, and even better to be able to deal with your LWS.

Ya mean I gotta mess with an allen wrench and TWO little (easily dropped)
set-screw's every time I take out the drill ?


UGH.

I have an old B&D monster with a straight shank, uses adapters to
#3 mt, you set up the 4 of them (jacobs chuck w/center drill,
then tap drill size, then c'sink, then tap) and quickly change them
out by removing the knurled ring. My contractor friend has a Milwaukee
that uses the same set-up.

I figured by now, these new fancy machines, would have a simpler
locking ring/ball detent arrangement to quickly change out the bit/tap.
And should not only have power feed, have a down stop to automatically
retract and shut off when done (peck feed would be nice too)

Looks similar to what I'm trying to do.

What do you make of those little Hougen right angle "lunchbox"
types ?

I might just make up an adapter for my friends drill, using the common
quick change tap holder, adapting a jacobs chuck to one.

They do allot of floor plates (1"-2" thick already grouted in place)
where they have to drill, and then tap many holes, all in place
using a mag drill.

Mighty pretty. Looks much shinier than the old Miwaukie I used on the shop press.

Is there any way to re circulate the coolant?

They make all of that, but not in a sub $1000 mag drill. I personally have never had a problem with the set screw holding method. Besides all of the many cutters I have are set up for this. The 3 mag drills I own all use this method. I now have a mag drill set up with a regular chuck, and a small and a large capacity mag drills.
