Rabbit Tool’s center drilling machine draws on almost 35 years of experience to simplify center drilling of round or hex bar stock. Unique jaw locating actuator rods — built right into the unit — help assure the high precision center drilling you need for confident finish machining on lathes, all without the hassle and expense of large bore lathes, horizontal bore mills, or hand layouts.
The Model #CDX-1300 (and stretched version 1800) not only delivers the accuracy you need but productivity and versatility as well. Designed for easy use, this hand-held model weighs about twenty pounds, a fraction of “competitive” lathes. You can use our fully portable drill anywhere in the shop, or even off-site. In every application, its light weight reduces fatigue and increases safety.
You can center drill 3/4" to 13" (or 18") diameter stock in less than 45 seconds using the same reversible jaws. All the handles and tools needed for setup are built into the machine. Changeover from one diameter to another is equally quick — from one diameter to another is equally quick — even for inexperienced operators.
When it comes to reliability, we’ve kept the design sensibly simple and clean. We also use heavy duty 1/2" drill motors to ensure the #CDX-1300/1800 is producing on the shop floor and not wasting away in the tool crib. To match your non-standard application needs, the masterjaw comes in a choice of materials — aluminum or heat-treated steel. Custom bores are also available. Contact us for details.
The larger machines of this series, the CDX-2400HD/3600HD and CDX-4800/7200 are larger versions of this basic design.
