The Nova Viking brings you the benefits of a ''smart'' drill press in a compact size that fits on your benchtop. It features onboard LED lights, laser crosshairs, and a smooth-running direct-drive motor that is controlled by a sophisticated microcomputer and digital screen with push-button controls. Digital Variable Reluctance automatically adjusts and maintains the speed and power of the machine based on resistance. That, coupled with the absence of belts and pulleys, results in a machine that is incredibly smooth and quiet. The computer lets the motor draw only as much power as is needed, saving up to 50% in energy usage over conventional motors. With its 1HP high torque motor, cast iron construction, exceptional structural strength and smart design, the Nova Viking is a great choice for drilling tasks in any shop where space is limited.
