General Extends Its Reach



The main difference between this model and others is its lengthened 6" vertical spindle travel.

The cast-iron head of the 75-260 M1 is mounted to a sturdy 3 ⅛" steel column and sits on a stable 11 3/4 x 19 ⅝" cast-iron base. The large 14 x 14" cast-iron table tilts 45 degrees left or right and can be quickly swiveled away for off-table drilling. It also has four strategically located slots for securing a variety of clamps or jigs to the table. A smooth rack and pinion is used for table height adjustments and all swivel or pivot points are secured with metal locking levers.

The 75-260 M1 features a 1 HP, totally enclosed fan-cooled motor, a heavy duty positive depth stop, a ¾" chuck, a large front-mounted paddle-style stop switch and, for added safety, an adjustable flip-up, see-through chuck guard.

The unit is equipped with cast-iron pulleys for smooth, vibration-free operation and by simply changing the belt positions on the pulleys it offers 12 possible speed selections, from 255 to 2750 RPM.
The General International 75-260M1 can be ordered from most General/General International retail distributors.
