Jancy USA-101 Portable Mag-Base Drill Review


About Jancy Engineering:

This remarkable American company which was established in the year 1957 and headquartered in Davenport, IA, has propelled itself to success by manufacturing high quality portable magnetic drills, saws and metal working equipment.

Key Features:

  • The drill is of 12V, 11.5 amps and 17.5 horsepower

  • The drill also has a single-phase 1380 watt motor

  • Its magnet dead lift holds at around 1480lbs and it has a drill point break away of 650lb that can pierce through 1″ thick steel

  • Highly portable making it easy to use and maneuver

  • Safety strap to prevent the machine from falling if the power supply to the magnet is unhooked.

It drills so smoothly even through hard steel that, every time I use it I am left wondering whether the material I am drilling is steel or aluminium. Seriously it’s an absolute beast of a machine.


In case of any manufacturing defect the product will be replaced within 30 days of purchase. The company also gives 1 year warranty on the product, so if it undergoes any failures within this 1 year, it will be replaced or freight prepaid to the authorized service centers.


You won’t find a better USA made mag drill for the price. This thing is small  and nimble with plenty of power to get just about any job done. The extra little features and build quality really make this drill an amazing buy for the price.
