This is a Prima PCB Drilling Machine Mark 4. It's a high speed (nominally 18,000 rpm) precision drilling machine for making the small holes for PCB components. The adjustable nozzle is a built in vacuum cleaner which effectively sucks up the dust and keeps the drill bit clear. Also the fitted light illuminates the drill bit very well. It has a very handy automatic mode which initiates both the drill and the vacuum as the lever is depressed, then turns them off when returned. Alternatively these functions can be turned on or off manually. The drill easily makes very neat precise little holes in the old PCB I tested it on. The drill has seen very little use. The table is a little marked but is very smooth. There is a dent in the casing at the rear but this has no effect on functionality. I have a video of the machine in use to demonstrate it's functionality which I can send you on request. I can post it to the UK mainland using Parcelforce for £11. Alternatively you can collect it or I may be able to deliver if it's mutually convenient.
