ROGUE FAB Drill Press Reduction Kits 1:2 and 1:4 ratios available

Does your drill press run too fast to use a hole saw on metal? How about a ” drill bit through steel plate? Are you sick of burning up expensive cutting tools? Look no further, you have found the solution. Now you can turn a used $150 drill press into a serious cutting machine!

This bolt on kit cuts the RPM of your drill press and increase torque. Typically referred to as a “jackshaft”, these are commonly home made with plywood and hardware store parts. This is a much easier and safer alternative, and will likely cost you less money than building your own. Made with high quality greasable ball bearings in cast pillow blocks with a laser cut and CNC formed steel mount, this tool is designed to last as long as your drill press when properly cared for. Requires trimming your belt guard if equipped. kits reuse one of your factory belts (or an additional belt will be required). Comes with new motor mounting hardware. Made in the USA*.

NEMA 56 3L 1:2 – 3L (3/8”) belts, 1/2 the RPM, 2x torque. $119 shipped (US)

NEMA 56 3L 1:2 – A (1/2”) belts, 1/2 the RPM, 2x torque. $119 shipped (US)

NEMA 56 3L 1:4 – A (1/2”) belts, 1/4 the RPM, 4x torque. $139 shipped (US)

What is a NEMA 56? These kits work only with motors that mount with a 3" x 4 7/8" bolt pattern and have a 5/8" shaft, part of the definition of a NEMA 56 motor. Most drill presses have these motors. Call/PM us if you think you have something else.

*Bearing components are imported.

We have the parts on order for the 1:4 kits, and we got the price improved considerably! $139 shipped in the US!

And you can double these kits up, mounting one off each side. We have longer hardware and we will be carrying longer belts too. Now with one kit you can go down to 1:2 or 1:4, and with 2 kits you can crawl a 3" hole saw or a mill cutter at 1:8 or 1:16!

Even if your drill press will only slow down to 600 RPM from the factory, you can rip it up at 37.5 RPM without any load on the spindle!

Here is an image out of our CAD system with the 1:4 pulley installed on factory 12 speed benchtop drill press.

Time to slow down your drill press and make it drill holes as well as a milling machine:cool:

We got some photos from a happy DPRK customer. Thanks for the photos Henry! He got his taiwaneese press down to a minimum of 50 RPM with our 4:1 kit!

We did some reaming on hot rolled steel in the shop over the weekend. It was oh so nice to be able to set the speed low on the drill press. Priceless when you don't have a mill!

We have all configurations in stock and ready to ship.

If you aren't sure if your drill press is compatible (has a NEMA 56 motor), just post up or PM us, we can help you figure it out.

Time for an xmas gift for yourself - no more burned up drill bits.

These are made in the USA with quality components and are fully adjustable.

RogueFab 12-14-2012 09:42 AM

We just went through our webpage and made some updates and cleanup, as well as added our new shirts, just in time for christmas!

They go great with a drill press reduction kit:2thumbsup:

We added the key features that need to match on the motor for compatibility to the original post-

"Works only with motors that mount with a 3" x 4 7/8" bolt pattern and have a 5/8" shaft."

We can make them for other motors (like stuff over 1 HP). Just give us a call or PM.

This big Rockwell drill press (equipped with a RogueFab Reduction Kit) is used by Spiral X LLC, in Garland, Texas. Spiral X makes industry leading high performance air coolers, and drills thousands of large diameter holes in stainless steel every month. Brian (the owner) said: "The drill press reduction kit is working fantastic. I don't know how you would drill into stainless steel in production without it. We were able to pull in the drilling we used to outsource (although we are a little slow). For instance, on a piece I was paying $50.00 for, we are doing the drilling in 1 hour with a jig internally, saving jobs and of course money!"

Here is a good resolution photo of just the reduction kit. 1:4 shown, although we just got in some slightly smaller pulleys and got it stretched down to almost 5:1!

Just got back from a show in Washington, thanks for stopping by everyone!

The time now is 10:12 AM.
