The Pillar Drill is an encompassing phrase that refers to any drill press that is mounted on a bench, or bolted to a floor with a stand. Basically, anything that is not a typical handheld drill.
A Pillar Drill is a great gift idea for a handyman that has almost everything. A drill press can perform tasks that require much more force than a hand drill can handle.
