Covington Engineering’s Manual Gem Drill 605MGD, is used on medium to soft gemstone material or glass.  Some of the features are high speed motor, foot operated speed control, lever operated with 3/4″ stroke, bracket and motor can be quickly adjusted for height or removed and mounted horizontally to convert the unit into a buffer or carver.  The manual gem drill is a versatile, light duty drill that can do fast, accurate drilling.  Unit is powered by a 1/15 HP, 5000 RPM variable speed motor.  Comes with 1/4″ Jacobs chuck and key, water pan, instructions and guaranteed.  The drill is  used with water, and a dike surrounds the item to be drilled.  To make the drills last longer, use what is called a pecking operation, lifting the drill bit up and down which allows the gem material to escape and be flushed out the hole.  This is a solid drill bit.  There are also bonded core drill bits (these  have a hole in the center) which some feel is better for removing the material from the gemstone. Weight 9  lbs.,  Dimensions: 16″ x 8″ x 6″.  Covington Products are shipped from Meridian, ID.
