Why use a bench top drill press


If you’re passionate about DIY projects like me, you certainly heard all about top drill presses and their amazing uses around the house. What I love about them is that they are extremely powerful and precise at the same time, being able to drill even the hardest materials with an amazing accuracy.

There are plenty of uses for a bench top drill press, depending on the type of homemade project you have in mind. Here are some of the reasons why you should start using the best drill press or rush to the nearest store and buy one if you don’t have one already.


Clothes design

If you’re into fashion just like I am, you will certainly embrace the power of a good drill press in your atelier. Sure, there are plenty of other tools that are specifically used for making holes in soft fabrics but think about all the other benefits such a tool would give you. You can literally create a wide spread of unique designs and even add holes to rough leather and metal. Embroideries, embellishments, rock chains or leather goods – the sky’s the limit when it comes to what you can create with the help of a simple drill press.

Interior design

Assuming you are new in the interior decoration design or you simply want to take advantage of the spare time you have and invest more in your house. Painting walls and buying cushions is the easy part of interior decorators, so go read somewhere else if you’re only interested in this. However, if you think about going deeper, making holes in wood, metal, or any other harsh or soft material, you will require the help of a good drill press.

I’m not extremely talented in the woodcraft field just yet, but I can vouch for some easy furniture pieces and unique decorations which were made with the help of this powerful tool. From hangers to bookshelves with unique patterns to embellished mirror frames, you can now watch online tutorials for pretty much everything and learn how to make your own interior decorations. All you will require is some top class materials and some spare time.

Jewelry design

If you plan on becoming a reputed jeweler, you will require time, passion, and some kick-butt materials and tools. I have a friend who is interested in homemade jewelry and she now learns the basics of this craft. It is truly amazing to see a talented person dedicating her time to create little pieces of metal wonders which one of us call earrings, necklaces or bracelets.

A drill press is really useful in her case because she can easily recreate the same necklace or pendant pattern without too much additional work included.
