A Pedestal Drill which is also known as a Pillar Drill can be a floor mounted or a bench mounted drilling machine. At the bottom of the drilling machine column is a base which can be bolted to the floor or bench.
A geared or pulley-drive head with a quill which accommodates various drill bit sizes is mounted at the top end of the column and a table is fitted to the column between the base and the head for the workpiece to be placed on. The table can be moved up and down the column depending on the height required for the specific workpiece under the quill.
A Pedestal Drill with power feeds will have a range of speeds and feeds for the purpose of drilling through different types of materials such as steel, brass and aluminium.
