WARNING: When using electrical tools basic safety precautions should always be followed to
reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock and personal injury including following.
Please also observe the relevant national industrial safety regulations. Non-observance of the safety
instructions in the said documentation can lead to an electric shock, burns and/or severe injuries.
This Operator’s Manual including the “General Safety Instructions” should be kept for later use and
enclosed with the power tool, should it be passed on or sold.
WORK AREA
1. Keep your work area clean and well lit. Cluttered benches and dark areas invite accidents.
2. Do not operate magnetic drilling machine in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence
of flammable liquids, gases or dust. Magnetic drilling machine may create sparks which may
ignite the dust or fumes.
3. Keep bystanders, children, and visitors away while operating a magnetic drilling machine.
Distractions can cause you to lose control.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
1. Magnetic drilling machine plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way. Do
not us any adapter plugs.
2. Avoid body contact with grounded surfaces such as pipes, radiators, ranges and refrigerators.
There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is grounded.
3. Do not expose magnetic drilling machines to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a
machine will increase the risk of electric shock.
4. Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord to carry the magnetic drilling machine or pull the
plug from an outlet. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Replace
damaged cords immediately. Damaged cords increase the risk of electric shock.
5. When operating a magnetic drilling machine, use an extension cord suitable for outdoor use.
Use of a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock.
6. If operating a magnetic drilling machine in a damp location is unavoidable, use a residual
current device (RCD) protected supply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk of electric shock.
PERSONAL SAFETY
1. Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when using a magnetic drilling
machine. Do not use machine while tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or
medication. A moment of inattention while operating magnetic drilling machines may result
in serious personal injury.
4
2. Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry. Contain long hair. Keep your hair,
clothing, and gloves away from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can be
caught in moving parts.
3. Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is off before plugging in. Carrying magnetic drilling
machines with your finger on the switch or plugging in magnetic drilling machines that have
the switch on invites accidents.
4. Never place hands, fingers, gloves or clothing near cutting area or rotating machine parts.
5. Remove adjusting keys or switches before turning the machine on. A wrench or a key that is
left attached to a rotating part of the machine may result in personal injury.
6. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. Proper footing and balance
enables better control of the magnetic drilling machine in unexpected situations.
7. Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Dust mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard
hat, or hearing protection must be used for appropriate conditions.
8. Always use supplied safety chain during any work on non-horizontal components. Mounting
can release.
MACHINE USE AND CARE
1. When using the machine on non-horizontal surfaces, you must use cutting paste. Do not use
oil because the oil can drip into the motor unit
2. During machine operations, the annular cutter must be cooled and lubricated with good
quality cutting or lubrication oil. Remove the slug from the annular cutter after each hole.
Caution, the slug may be hot!
3. Use clamps or other practical way to secure and support the work piece to a stable platform.
Holding the work by hand or against your body is unstable and may lead to loss of control.
4. Do not use machine if switch does not turn it on or off. Any tool that cannot be controlled
with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
5. Disconnect the plug from the power source before making any adjustments, changing
accessories, or storing the tool. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting
the tool accidentally.
6. Store idle magnetic drilling machines out of reach of children and other untrained persons.
Tools are dangerous in the hands of untrained users.
7. Maintain machines with care. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained tools,
with sharp cutting edges are less likely to bind and are easier to control.
8. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, and any other
condition that may affect the machine operation. If damaged, have the tool serviced before
using. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained tools.
9. Use only accessories that are recommended by Euroboor for your model. Accessories that
may be suitable for one machine, may become hazardous when used on another machine.

WARNING: never touch moving machine parts!
16
4.4 Electromagnet
Make sure the magnetic drilling machine is placed on a smooth, clean, level and solid surface without
any objects or dubree in between to guarantee maximum adhesion
The workpiece must be at least 5 mm thick for the magnet to stick, but minimal 3 mm thick to hold
the weight of the machine and to drill safely. In case the workpiece is between 3 and 5 mm, make
sure to make a proper base to create a good magnetic field as shown in image 2-6.
[image 2-6]
The electromagnet will work best on surfaces of at least 10 mm thickness.
The electromagnet may not be able to create a good enough magnetic field. Causes may be:
- Surface not flat
- Workpiece not magnetizable (e.g. aluminium)
- Workpiece coated or painted
- Workpiece not thick enough
In this situation the magnet indicator will light up red. Make sure to solve any of these matters
before proceeding in any way and creating unsafe situations
1. Connect the machine to the mains/work piece
2. To activate the magnet, press the red magnet switch
The magnet switch will be lit (red)
The LED indicator lights up GREEN when generated magnetic force is sufficient
3. To deactivate the magnet, press the same switch again
WARNING: Do not use this machine when LED indicator is RED. Magnet may not generate
sufficient attachment force
17
We need to point out that this is only an indication and not a certainly that the magnet will not
release from the material. Euroboor accepts no liability ensuring from the magnet indicator not
functioning or functioning poorly.
Make sure that the magnet attaches tightly to the work piece before turning on the motor unit of the
magnetic drilling machine. Euroboor magnets have 2 coils; make sure that both coils are in contact
with the material. Do not connect any other machines to the electrical outlet the magnetic drilling
machine is plugged into, as it may result in the loss of magnetic force.
Always use the safety chain included. Drilling above your head is extremely dangerous and is not
recommended. For the use of magnetic drilling machines on pipes, not-flat or non-magnetic
materials, we refer to our brochure or our website www.euroboor.com where several vacuum
tightening systems and pipe clamping systems are mentioned.
4.5 Switching motor on and off
The motor unit can only be switched ON when the magnet is activated. To switch the motor ON,
press the green button with marking “I”. To switch the motor OFF, press the red button with marking
“O”.
4.6 Motor rotation
ECO.55-T only
The rotational direction of the motor can be changed.
- Switch in up position (R) will make the motor rotate clockwise
- Switch in down position (L) will make the motor rotate anticlockwise
- Switch in middle position will not make the motor rotate (neutral position)
Before switching the rotational direction of the motor and spindle, make sure the motor is switched
off first to prevent machine and tool damage.
4.7 Motor speed control
ECO.55-T only
The speed control knob (potentiometer) allows you to electronically control the speed of the motor
(in both clockwise and anticlockwise direction).
- The indicator of the potentiometer in bottom left corner is minimum speed
- The indicator of the potentiometer in bottom right corner is maximum speed
The electronic motor speed control works for both mechanical gears.
Be careful not to overturn the knob.

WARNING: The displayed motor power usage and LED indicators are only an indication of
correct cutting performance. Always keep an eye on the workpiece, tool and machine and
check if the cutting performance is as it should be.
WARNING: Never touch any potentially moving parts as long as the motor switch is still
switched on!
19
4.9 Temperature control
The ECO.55-T is equipped with an all-time electronic temperature protection. If the temperature of
the motor unit runs up to 70 Degree Celsius the motor unit will stop. After a few minutes it can be
started again.
When it is possible to start the motor again, let the motor run idle at full speed for a couple of
minutes to let the motor cool down more in an efficient way.
4.10 Tool lubrication
IN HORIZONTAL APPLICATIONS
In order to use the lubrication system, the tank must be filled with a cutting fluid or oil
1. Make sure the flow regulator is closed
2. Unscrew the cap
3. Fill the container with cutting fluid or oil
4. Screw the cap back on
•
•
Adjust the fluid flow as required using the flow regulator;
Add more cutting fluid if the shavings (metal chips) become blue.
VERTICAL AND OVERHEAD APPLICATIONS
Dip the cutter in cutting paste or apply an appropriate spray.
WARNING: Do not use the lubrication system in vertical or overhead drilling applications.
Instead use Euroboor cutting paste
Make sure to use only suitable cutting oil or fluid. Euroboor offers a wide range of cutting lubricants
for all tool and material combinations. Proper cooling will help you create better and faster results,
and extend the lifetime of your tools.
20
5 Working with operation tools
5.1 Annular cutters
Annular cutters only cut material at the periphery of the hole, rather than converting the entire hole
to shavings. As a result, the energy required to make a hole is lower than for a twist drill.
When drilling with an annular cutter, it is not necessary to drill a pilot hole.
WARNING: Do not touch the cutter or the parts close to the cutter immediately after
operation, as they may be extremely hot and cause burns to the skin. Ensure nobody is in the
work area where the metal core is ejected.
DRILLING CONDITIONS
The ease with which material can be drilled depends on several factors including tensile strength and
abrasion resistance. Whilst hardness and/or strength is the usual criterion, wide variations in
machinability can exist among material showing similar physical properties.
The drilling conditions are dependent on requirements for tool life and surface finish. These
conditions are further restricted by the rigidity of the tool and the work piece, lubrication and
machine power available. The harder the material, the lower the cutting speed.
Some materials of low hardness contain abrasive substances leading to rapid cutting edge wear at
high speeds. Feed rates are governed by rigidity of set-up, volume of material to be removed, surface
finish and available machine power.
DRILLING A HOLE
Now that you have read the explanatory information and safety recommendations above, you are
ready to actually start drilling. Follow these 12 steps for best drilling result :
1. Install the annular cutter
- Place the pilot pin into the cutter
- Align the flat faces on the cutter shank with the screws in the tool holder
- Make sure the cutter shank is entered fully and correctly (1)
- Tighten the screws (2)
[image 3-1]
2. Precisely mark the centre of the hole
21
3. Use the pilot pin to position the machine and in the correct position, with the tip of the pilot
pin to meet the marked center of the hole.
4. Switch on the magnet and verify that the drill is in the right position and that the machine is
pushed tight against the work piece.
5. If your machine is equipped with a auto coolant system, put open the valve to release the oil.
If your machine does not have an auto coolant system, fill the holes of the spindle with oil.
6. Switch the motor on at and allow it to run at the required speed.
7. Turn the arms to start drilling. Apply only a slight pressure when the annular cutter touch the
metal. Do not push the annular cutter with force into the metal.
8. Apply a regular pressure while drilling. The drilling performance does not improve by putting
more pressure on the tool. Too much pressure will overload the motor and your annular
cutter will be worn sooner.
A continuous, non-discoloured iron swarf is a sign of correct drilling speed and a wellcooled, sharp cutter. Let the cutter do the job and give it time to cut the metal!!!
9. Adjust the oil supply when necessary, if your drill does not have an auto coolant system, stop
drilling regularly, refill the holes of the spindle and continue drilling.
10. Apply less pressure when the drill cuts through the material. The slug will be pushed out of
the cutter by the pilot pin.
11. Turn the arms to put the motor in highest position and switch off the motor unit.
12. Remove the burrs, metal chips and clean the cutter and surface without getting injuries.
Caution: The metal piece drilled out can be sharp and very hot!!

3. Precisely mark the center of the hole, and use the tip of the twist drill to position the
machine and in the correct position, with the tip of the twist drill to meet the marked center
of the hole.
Steps 4-12: see chapter Annular cutters. Make sure the machine runs at maximum speed for
twist drills!
5.3 Machine taps
ECO.55-T only
The ECO.55-T model is equipped with a reversible direction of rotation and can also be used for
cutting threads. Proceed as follows for cutting threads:
1. Install the tap
[image 3-5]
2. Drill the hole for the thread on the recommended size of the tap
3. Switch off the machine and change the cutter for the tap collet and the machine tap. DO NOT
MOVE THE MACHINE
4. Select the lowest gear and lowest speed and set the direction of rotation to clockwise (right
= R)
5. Switch on the machine and set the machine tap onto the drilled hole
6. Guide the machine slide down at the handle without exerting
24
7. Switch off the machine (just before the tap is completely through the hole) and set the
direction of rotation to anti-clockwise (left = L) at switch
Switch on the machine again and allow the machine tap to come completely out of the work piece.
Then guide the motor unit slide upwards at handles to avoid damaging the start of the thread. DO
NOT LET YOUR TAP PUSH UP THE MOTOR UNIT BY ITSELF!!
Make sure the properly lubricate while performing tapping work, see chapter Annular cutters
5.4 Countersinks
Thanks to its wide range of operating speeds, the machine can also be used for reaming or countersinking.
Follow the steps mention in chapter Twist drills

6. Maintenance
Your EUROBOOR power tool has been designed to operate over a long period of time with a
minimum of maintenance. Continuous satisfactory operation depends upon proper tool care and
regular cleaning.
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of injury, turn unit off and disconnect machine from power
source before installing and removing accessories, before adjusting or changing set- ups or
when making repairs. Be sure the switch is in the OFF position. An accidental start-up can
cause injury.
Just as every magnetic drilling machine with moving parts, your Euroboor magnetic drilling machine
also needs regular maintenance service. A few recommendations follow :
VISUALLY CHECK THE MACHINE FOR DAMAGE
Machine must be checked before operation for any signs of damage that will affect the operation of
the machine. Particular notice must be taken of the mains cable, if the machine appears to be
damaged it should not be used failure to do so may cause injury or death.
CLEANING
- Clean all dirt, dust, metal chips and burrs of your magnetic drilling machine
- Blow dirt and dust out of the main housing with dry air as often as dirt is seen collecting in and
around the air vents. Wear approved eye protection and an approved dust mask
- Never use solvents or other harsh chemicals for cleaning the non-metallic parts of the tool.
These chemicals may weaken the materials used in these parts. Use a cloth dampened only with
water and mild soap. Never let any liquid get inside the tool; never immerse any part of the tool
into a liquid.
OPERATION OF THE MACHINE
The machines operation must be checked to ensure that all components are working correctly.
Replace any defective parts immediately. This prevents properly function parts from being damaged.
CARBON BRUSHES
Brushes should be checked to make sure there is no abnormal wear present. This should be checked
at least once a week if used frequently. If the carbon brush has worn more than 2/3 the original
length the brushes should be changed. Failure to do so may cause damage to the machine.
CHECK MAGNETIC BASE
Before every operation the magnetic base should be checked to make sure that the base is flat and
there is no damage present. An uneven magnet base will cause the magnet not to hold as efficiently
and may cause injury to the operator.
When the machine us put out of use for a longer period, apply a small amount of machine oil to the
underside of the magnetic base for rust protection. Clean the magnetic base again with next use.
CHECK MACHINE OIL
The gearbox oil should be checked and replaced at least once a year to ensure maximum lubrication
and cooling, and thus the best performance of the machine.
26
CHECK ARMATURE
This should be checked at least 1 per month to check that there are visual signs of damage to the
body or to the commutator. Some signs of wear will be seen on the commutator over a period of
time this is normal as this is the part that comes in contact with the brushes but any signs of
abnormal damage and the part should be replaced.
ADJUSTMENT OF SLIDE
An essential requirement of the machine is that the slide can move in a smooth and controlled
manner, free of lateral movement and vibration.
This situation can be maintained by periodic adjustment of the slide and is accomplished in the
following manner:
1. Place the machine in an upright position and, by means of the capstan, raise the slide to its
highest position. Clean the aluminum rails and apply a small amount of light machine oil to
the wear surfaces
2. Gently feed in setting screw with supplied Allen key 2.5until slight resistance is encountered.
Follow your way down adjusting all setting nuts and screws
3. Operate the slide up and down a few times to test the movement and make any further
necessary adjustments. Try to ensure that all the screws are exerting a uniform pressure on
the slide from top to bottom. A perfectly adjusted slide will operate freely up and down
without any sideways movement
LUBRICATING THE FEED TRAVEL
The feed travel should be lubricated periodically with grease to ensure smooth operation.
- Raise the motor unit to the highest position possible
- Lubricate the dove-tail guide way at both sides
- Lubricate the gear rack
After repeated use, the gear rack may become loose. If necessary, adjust the 5 self-locking set
screws at the left side. Tighten screws in series until the gear rack moves freely in the dove-tail guide
but does not allow the motor to wobble.
REPAIR, MODIFICATION AND INSPECTION
Repair, modification and inspection of Euroboor Magnetic drilling machines must be done by
EUROBOOR or an EUROBOOR authorized dealer. The spare parts list will be helpful if presented with
the machine to the Euroboor dealer for service when requesting repair or other maintenance.
Euroboor machines are constantly being improved and modified to incorporate the latest
technological advancements. Accordingly, some parts (i.e. part numbers and/or design) may be
changed without prior notice. Also, due to Euroboor's continuing program of research and
development, the specifications of machines are subject to change without prior notice.
WARNING: Since accessories, other than those offered by EUROBOOR, have not been tested
with this product, use of such accessories with this tool could be hazardous. To reduce the risk
of injury, only EUROBOOR recommended accessories should be used with this product.
Consult your dealer for further information on the appropriate accessories.
