Low profile magnetic core drill
- Published: May 16, 2018
Fein has introduced the new Slugger JMC USA 90 low profile magnetic core drill.
The Slugger JMC USA 90 is designed for drilling diameters of up to 1⅜″ (35 mm). It is the smallest and lightest magnetic core drill with right-angle drive, developed for use in very tight spaces. It joins Fein’s Compact performance series and is available in Canada from specialist distributors.
The Slugger JMC USA 90 has a compact design. With a height of just 6¹¹⁄₁₆″ (169 mm), the tool handles core drilling in tight spots which cannot be accessed by traditional core drills. For example, the JMC USA90 fits between the two flanges of a HEB 200 steel girder with a bar height of 6¹¹⁄₁₆″ (169 mm). It can also be used in restricted spaces in vehicle and trailer construction.
Fein has equipped the angle drill with a fixed motor and a spindle sleeve feed. Thanks to its low-profile design, users can use this model to work in tight spots. Its width across corners of 1⁵⁄₁₆″ (33 mm) also allows for work very close to the edge. High gearbox positioning ensures a good view of the tool and drilling point. What’s more, the ratchet allows the tool to be operated with ease and in a space-saving manner.
A stroke range of 1¹³⁄₁₆″ (46 mm) enables cutting depths of up to 1⅜″ (35 mm). At just 16.5 lbs (7.5 kg), the lightest magnetic core drill on the market can be used vertically and overhead. Fein produces all load-bearing components from lightweight, high-strength cast aluminium and has optimized the weight of the powerful magnets too. All components are designed to be extremely distortion-resistant and able to withstand high loads for tough use in industry and manual trades.
A speed-stable 1100 W Fein high-power motor with tacho electronics and variable speed ensures high torque and rapid work progress. One noteworthy feature of this drill is its forward/reverse running with an electronic six-stage speed setting. The tool is thereby able to handle all key drilling jobs, such as core drilling, twist drilling and countersinking. The magnet with a holding force of 2250 lbs (10,000 N) ensures a reliable tool base. A tilt sensor immediately stops the tool if it shifts. The self-explanatory, durable controls with convenient magnetic holding force display are fitted in the user’s direct field of vision.
