Dremel 220-01 Workstation Drill Press Review
In the “I can’t believe I don’t already have one” category, comes this highly affordable benchtop workstation setup from Dremel. The “workstation” is a flexible piece of equipment that can be used to turn any Dremel rotary tool into a tabletop drill press. The workstation is specifically built to pair with the Dremel-branded products you already own, but customer reviews abound with testimony that it can also hold pieces produced by other manufacturers.
If you are looking to do a large amount of heavy-duty hole punching, this is not going to be the best machine for you, but if you are simply hoping to drill some accurate, straight holes on smaller projects – and especially if you already own a Dremel rotary tool – this is absolutely one of the best value products you can purchase today.
The Dremel station stands atop a stainless steel base with predrilled holes that allow it to be mounted without very much effort. The “spindle” swing is easily adjustable so that you can fine tune exactly how far your drill press will move upwards and downwards while you work. The table can also be adjusted up to 90 degrees for angled drilling, sanding, or whatever else you might have the tools to do with it.
Again, if you’re looking for the best drill press to handle any larger projects, you’re going to need to keep searching, but if you are looking for a machine to help you with hobbies, smaller home improvement projects, glass work, and other finnicky fix-it jobs around your home, this piece of equipment will undoubtedly feel like the one piece that’s been missing from your home collection.
