Help with drill press

I’m looking for a tabletop or hand drill press for punching holes in coasters and Lettra. Any suggestions?

Hi Nancy.

Where are you located? I have one $100.00 plus shipping.


For holes in paper, a paper drill is used rather than a drill press, although SuperSpeed used to sell an adapter for paper drill bits that fit into a standard drill press. That solution lacks the clamp that hold the paper in place. Paper drills use a hollow drill bit, which does not damage the paper. A standard twist drill bit will damage the paper.

Platenpress, I’m in Maryland. Can you send me more info? Pictures? Details? Mfr?

Parallel_Imp, thanks for that info. I’ll google paper drill and hope for the best.
