The Gunther Hobby Drilling System is the perfect lapidary bench drill press system for the jeweler or stone cutter who need precision tools to create new designs. The Gunther "Hobby" includes a Multidrill System Startup Kit, installed on a premium German Proxxon bench top drill press. The drill press has a very powerful 220 - 240 V-permanent-magnet-motor and a spindle drive via a 3-time band pulley with poly-v-bands. This gives the very important advantage of almost 6-times the torque in the lower speed range (for large drilling diameters). Includes spindle-sleeve-feed for delicate work, and a practical drill-depth-display with an adjustable end stop, as well a precisely located drill spindle.

The Multidrill System Startup Kit will perform only as good as the drill press that its mounted on. The Hobby Drilling System allows you to push the limits of possibility with the Multidrill System by pairing it with a top of the line, Proxxon drill press. 

This system comes with the following:

  • 1 - Proxxon Bench Top Drill Press
  • 1 - Drill spindle with automatic core ejector and 7 mm clamping shaft  (Note: a 6 mm clapping shaft can be provided as a custom option.)

  • 1 - 2.5 mm Diamond Core Drill Bit with F-Connection & Ejector Needle.(Recommended size to learn with.)
