I bought this then assembled it on arrival, only to find it is grossly underpowered. it has a 250 watt motor NOT a 600 watt motor as described on this site.
This makes the drill underpowered. I used a 8mm twist drill in softwood on 2500 rpm and the machine stalled at 10mm depth with a clean drill. I now wonder how it will fare on something more challenging like Steel?

Record Power DP25B 355mm Bench
I bought this item via screwfix at "reduced price". However, after assembly that took 1/2 h I noted it is too weak even to drill into wood. When I tried it several times I noted it stalls into even the wood I was drilling and could not get it to work properly. I then contacted Record Tool and asked why it was so underpowered to be told the induction motor IS NOT 600 watts as per screwfix and is only BARELY 300 watt.
Also the belt is twisted and what ever you do the whole machine shakes and is rambling and stil not worse teh premium charge almost double as others on the market.
I will return it and buy something that is actually does what is written on the box.
There are a lot around including titan that is half the price and I won't bet they are much worse. Be aware!

Best drill ever purchased
I am really glad I purchased this Record Power drill. It's solid as you would expect from Record, works really well and suits my workshop needs.
If you want a really solid piece of equipment then for the price this is a steal...

Fantastic bench drill
This has got to be the best drill I have had. It has got all the features that I wanted. I like the on/off switch at the front, my old drill had it on the side, at least I can use either hand.it will be a pleasure to use.

Does the steel vice as pictured come with the pillar drill?
No sorry this is an extra not available on the Screwfix website.
