DUSS Precision Drill Stand KB 43
This machine weighs 15 kg and that tells most of the story. This is one substantial and solid tool. The table and armature are made of cast iron, the columns in steel. The moving parts run smoothly and there is no accuracy-destroying play in their movement. A 17 mm wrench is supplied with the unit to attach and adjust the elevation of the drill. Manufactured in Germany, the DUSS stand takes the European 43 mm neck size.

What? So much money for a drill stand? For that much money, I could buy a drill press.
That is correct, and you should buy a drill press if you have the place for a stationary table and do not need the DUSS's flexibility. But that is why they are made, for people who need the flexibility and mobility that they provide, and the precision and quality of work, equal to that of a good-quality drill press, that these top-quality tools are able to produce. But buying a drill press capable of producing the precision available from the DUSS stand might not save one any money in the end, and buying a lesser machine could be less than useless, as if there is any play in the works, it will often not be used. With the DUSS, it is no exaggeration to say that it is the best drill stand, currently produced, in the world.
