Drill presses are used to create holes in workpieces, and they accept a wider range of cutter types and sizes than handheld drills. They have a spindle with a chuck that accepts a range of cutters such as twist drill bits, annular cutters, and threading taps. Drill capacity is determined by the size of the cutter accepted by the drill press. Magnetic drill presses are used to drill holes in steel where it is necessary to move the drill to the workpiece, such as ship and bridge building. They are portable and have a magnetic base that secures the drill to the steel workpiece, allowing the drill to be mounted vertically or horizontally on the workpiece. Cutting capacity is determined by the size of the cutter accepted by the magnetic drill press. Magnetic adhesion signifies the amount of force it takes to lift the drill off 1″ thick steel when the magnet is activated.
