  • difference between pillar drill and mag drill

    Is there a difference? Can you use normal drill bits on a mag drill?

    Yes you can. There should be an adaptor for a number 3 MT and a drill chuck...Bob

      difference between pillar drill and mag drill

      Which would you recommend? I need it mainly for drilling 25/26mm holes.

          I have used mag drills with regular chucks that don't take a morse taper bit, and also a hougen with the rotabroach type bits. I personally love the hougen drill, very lightweight and clean holes. Costly to buy upfront though

                I've had good luck with my CSunitec mag drill and cutters, I would buy them again. http://www.csunitec.com/portable-magnetic-drills/
