Magnetic Drill Parts!

Buy Magnetic Drill repair parts and get that old drill boring again like new!

Magnetic drills can really go through a lot on a job site. All the drills are built tough, but even the regular daily wear and tear on a job site will take a negative toll on the internal parts of the core drill. Bad magnetic fields, vibrating chucks, and even overloaded electric motors are common issues we hear about from customers. Simply getting the right repair parts can save you hundreds of dollars instead of a new drill purchase. Another common customer call we get is for the on-off push buttons. These pushbuttons and capacitors run down with time not allowing you to properly control the magnetic drill. Simply inspecting your electronics every year can save you lots of money in downtime year after year.

The electrical health of your Hougen magnetic drill is important as well. Many magnetic drills are gear-driven. Remember, that there is never a need to buy a whole new motor, costing a bunch of money when an inexpensive run capacitor or power switch can fix the power issue. Call in now to speak with one of our drill techs to find out all about it.

Important Magnetic Drill Info

Interesting facts about Hougen magnetic drills are they are equipped with a powerful electromagnet to easily clamp the machine on the workpiece to be drilled easily. With power, this magnet is held on the metalwork surface locking the machine base to the piece. The electromagnet plays a huge role in a portable magnetic drill's efforts, as it helps the machine stay steady, does not let the machine fall during drilling, can even allow work with the drill horizontal or vertical. A Hougen magnetic core drilling machine is used directly ferrous material, but it can also be used on non-ferrous material like aluminum with the help of a clamping tool.

The newest generation Hougen magnetic drill bases are also equipped with Swivel Base versions, to move the machine even under magnetic conditions.




Keep in mind that the drill stand is the main body of the Hougen magnetic drilling machine where the electric switches for the motor and magnet are located. The main body of the magnetic drill holds together the motor and the magnet base sections. The up and down feed handle is also attached to the body. This section of the magnetic drill helps the motor slide on it to get an upward and downward feed. The body of the magnetic drill is important to lift and move the machine from one place to another. The material used for the body is generally made of cast iron on most brands.
