Cutting the Cord on Tough Drilling Jobs

The M18 FUEL 1.5 in Magnetic Drill features a patented magnetic base that delivers safer drilling in ¼ in steel by providing the strongest magnetic hold on this material. The new tools utilize permanent magnets so that the magnetic base operates without electricity, ensuring that the magnet does not deactivate if the battery is drained.  Equipped with Auto-Stop lift-off detection, power to the motor is automatically cut if excess rotational motion is detected while drilling.
Ideal for vertical and overhead drilling, these compact cordless magnetic drills meet the demands of workers with limited access to power that regularly encounter thin metal applications.

Powerful Lightweight Two-Speed Mag Drill

The HMD905 portable magnetic drill from Hougen provides steel fabricators with a great power-to-weight ratio that offers more strength and torque in a small lightweight footprint.

New Magnetic Drill Pilot Light

This feature shines light along the bottom of the cutting teeth and over the pilot tip which extends from the end of the cutter. By shining the light in this area, it allows the operator to easily see the pilot point and center punch of the hole. This increases operator productivity and hole location accuracy.
This LED light from Hougen lights the pilot point when drilling in low light, and in brighter conditions it counteracts shadows from the light.
