Telescoping Drill Press Shields

Telescoping Drill Shields

The Drill Shield With All-Around Protection

This durable shield offers all-around operator protection. It provides visibility of the component being drilled without adversely affecting the operation.

The shield holder is bored to a standard size of 2 3/4" diameter. By using one of ten bushings, the shield holder can be attached to most drilling machine quill diameters without special boring. It is available as an "off-the-shelf" shield assembly.

The drill shield consists of two major components - the drill shield holder which is clamped to the quill of the machine, and the drill shield itself. The drill shield clips into the holder and is held in position by three spring-loaded ball catches. The shield can, therefore, be completely removed from the holder for chuck or drill bit changes.

The Construction

The shield consists of two or three chrome-plated steel sleeves. The inner sleeve is a ribbed cage which is held stationary in the shield holder. The outer sleeves are free to move up and down on the inner cage. The inner sleeve has a guide groove, which gives radial movement to the outer sleeves to prevent jamming as the drill descends.

The lower sleeve is fitted with an acrylic transparent window held in position by a locking screw. The window can be slid out and quickly replaced at regular intervals, giving maximum visibility at all times. This sleeve rests on the components to be drilled; as the drilling operation takes place, the cage moves down. This helps protect the window and break up the chips.

When changing a drill bit, the shield can be removed from the shield holder. This gives you access to fit the key into the chuck.

The basic drill shield (without bushing) is bored to fit a circular quill diameter between 2 5/8" and 2 3/4".

Telescoping Drill Shields

2-Tier Drill Shield for Irregular-Shaped Quills

When the quill of a drill press is not round, but an irregular shape (pear shape in some cases), the three-lug drill shield is ideal. The photo illustrates how the three-lug shield is applied.

If the drill shields offered will not mount to your machine, please send us a photo and dimensions of the quill size. We would be pleased to send you a proposal on a special quill holder.

This drill shield is for drill presses that have 3" to 3 3/4" quills. It has three-lug mounting and fits drill presses with a 3" stroke and a maximum chuck diameter of 2 5/8 ".

3-Tier Drill Shield for Irregular-Shaped Quills

This drill shield has the same three-lug mounting as illustrated above. It has a 3" bore and will fit a maximum chuck diameter of 2 5/8". This shield allows 3" or 6" travel of the chuck and drill bit.

When the 3-tier drill shield is in the position shown here, it has an overall length of 11 1/2". When the thumbscrew is adjusted to the middle or top holes, the overall length is 10" and 8 1/2" respectively. When the thumbscrew is in a retracted position (not in the bottom hole of top tier), the bottom two tiers will move up and down to provide 6" of travel. When the thumbscrew is engaged into one of the three holes, only the bottom tier will travel allowing a 3" stroke.
