    Bernmc,

    My hub IS slightly off-centre, but that doesn't effect its operation. It's not pretty but I can live with it.

    I've been giving the poor little Bosch a hard time recently. Drilling dog holes through my new workbench tops made from 75mm thick reclaimed 80yr old blackbutt, Ironbark and other hardwoods.

    Urgent urgent what would freight be from Perth to South Oz for one of these.
    I can now be more open...I decided to do a Gumtree Australia wide search and this popped up in Carine and he is retiring and downsizing.
    $20 not going to argue price but how to get it home for me.

    He is willing to put on hold for 24 hours for me..... Advice help please.

    Perth to "South Oz" doesn't give enough information for a price.

    Here's what I would do:

    (1) Check Amazon for box dimensions and weight - I found them to be ‎74.5 x 37.5 x 27.5 cm; 13.22 Kilograms
    (2) Input that, including postcodes into e-go Ė Australia's Number 1 Low Cost Carrier and in seconds you will have your price.

    Tip: $20 isn't going to cut it for shipping, I'm pretty sure.

    holey toledo prices are all over the place and living where we do adds an obscene extra.
    Ego Perth to Pt Lincoln $157
    " Adelaide (daughter) $37
    most freight are roughly same to Adelaide, Lincoln is a different story.

    Read further back in the thread. I address this issue in post #103

    with this arriving in next few days I start thinking about tables and heights etc

    1 I recently bought a drill press table with tracks, extending backboard etc, is it worth adding this to the Bosch table.

    2 What is the distance between chuck and existing table? can/do you raise the table if needed or just bring the chuck down further?

    3 some of you have changed the winding wheel while others have added steering wheel knobs thoughts ideas?

    any other mods that have been done.

    and to show my ignorance how do you gauge the drill speed for whatever job you are doing? I know when helping drill thick heavy steel to slow down but is there a table etc

    Hi Tony, with this unit unit the whole motor assembly adjusts up and down rather than the table which acts as the base. I have made no change to the wheel, find it quite easy to use, particularly if you adjust the head height. I also just use the existing fence with some small jigs I use without any issues.
    Keep in mind I use this unit for toy making so there is not to much to stress it, about the largest thing I have done was a 48 mm forstner hole, no issues.

    Hi Tony,

    One of the features is that you set the drill speed digitally. It's very easy to do. You can also set the depth the same way.
