Review of The Hougen HMD904S 115-Volt Swivel Base Mag Drill


The Swivel Base Magnetic Drill is the most convenient drilling equipment for medium and DIY activities. With over 15 years of acquaintance with tools and equipments at work, I found that this is one of the most convenient tools to use for regular work purposes. Equipped with 120V motor, this drilling machine has full potentiality to provide great results when at work with around 450 Rpm. I personally found the tool very useful and above all extremely safe for use. The safety switch with green and red light options guides the user about the condition of the machine. With ace quality Rotabroach cutters and ¾-inch shank, this drill machine is ideal for making holes in the most concrete and hard objects and surfaces and metals.
