SPECIAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS - MAGNETIC DRILLS
Safety Strap
The electro-magnet base on this power tool can release if there is a interruption in power
supply or electrical malfunction.
The safety strap provided should be used at all times to prevent the power tool from
falling in the event of power failure or electrical malfunction, possibly causing injury.
The safety cam buckle strap should be fitted to the through the slot provided and checked
for security before commencing any drilling operation.
Magnetic Adhesion
The magnets strength depends on the thickness and condition of the work piece material.
Always ensure that the work piece has a minimum thickness of 12mm or 1/2” to ensure
there is adequate magnetic adhesion.
If the work piece is less than 12mm or 1/2” then a piece of steel plate 12mm or 1/2” in
thickness and larger than the magnet footprint must be inserted to supplement the
magnetic adhesion.
The surface on which the magnet is placed should be clean, flat and clear from debris or
rust. The base of the magnet should be inspected to ensure it is also clean flat and clear
of debris.
Always check the magnet is securely adhered to the work piece before commencing any
drill operations.
Do not use other appliances on the same power receptacle, any variation in voltage
cause by other appliances could result in the magnet releasing. Always us the tool on its
own power receptacle.
This power tool can be used on a vertical surface or upside down provided there is
sufficient magnetic adhesion, extra care should be taken when drilling vertically or upside
down . When using the machine vertically or upside down it is possible hot and sharp
swarf or chips may fall. Always wear appropriate personal protective equipment
When Cutting
When using coolant or lubricants, ensure coolants and lubricants do not enter the drill
units ventilation/cooling openings.
If the drill is used in the upside down position, use cutting paste instead of cutting fluid to
prevent the possibility of fluids entering the electrical system.
When using annular cutters ensure that the slug ejected at the end of the cut will not
endanger anyone in the vicinity, if working at height some form of collection device for the
ejected slug may be necessary.
Care should be taken with the ejected slug, this will be both hot and sharp, gloves should
be worn when handling the slug.

CLAMPING - MAGNET CONTROL
An electro-magnet is used for clamping the tool onto the
workpiece.
The magnet is controlled by the magnet switch (F) located
at the bottom of the control panel.
‘O’ indicates magnet OFF, ‘I’ indicates magnet ON.
Ensure the magnet switch is OFF before connecting the
power supply.
Ensure the magnet is clean and free from debris and that
the machine is on a flat clean ferrous surface of the
required minimum thickness (1/2”).
F
G
To switch the magnet ON, press the switch to the ‘I’
position, the switch will illuminate to indicate there is a
power supply to the machine.
The security of the magnet should always be physically
checked BEFORE starting the drill unit.
The magnet is protected by a 20mm 2A fast acting fuse (G).
OPERATION - SPINDLE - START / STOP
The drill unit or “motor” is controlled by a twin push button
switch (H) at the top of the control panel.
The green button is ON the red button is OFF.
The green button is flush with the surrounding bezel.
The red button is raised above the surrounding bezel.
This is to prevent inadvertent operation of the drill unit.
H
The motor will not operate unless the magnet is switched
ON first.
The spindle direction switch should be in the FWD or REV
position before operating the spindle stop / start switch
BEFORE starting the motor, the security of the magnet
should be physically checked, if any movement is possible
this should be rectified BEFORE using the drill.
The motor control has an under-voltage relay, if the power
is interrupted the motor will stop and will not restart when
the power is resumed until the motor control is operated
again.

CUTTING SPEEDS / MATERIALS - HSS / TCT CUTTERS
The PB35 is a single speed drill unit with a nominal no-load speed of 550 rpm.
Under load the speed will reduce depending on the load applied.
ie: a large cutter will run slower than a smaller cutter (if the same feed rate is applied)
The PB35 has the optimum power / torque / spindle speed for HSS annular cutters in the
range Ø1/2” to Ø 1-3/8”, and TCT annular cutters in the range Ø1/2” to Ø1-1/2”, cutting
EN10025 S235J steel or its equivalent.
The PB35 can also be used on other materials such as high tensile steel and stainless
steel if the appropriate cutter for the material to be cut is selected.

WORKPIECE MATERIAL AND SIZE LIMITATIONS - MAGNET
The electro - magnet clamping force is measured as the pull off load when clamped on a
steel plate (EN10025 S235J or its equivalent) of 1” thickness, flat with a good
surface and free from rust and debris.
For any other workpiece material the clamping force will be different, any difference in
workpiece thickness and the clamping force will deviate.
The minimum recommended plate thickness for the electro-magnet is 1/2” thick.
If the workpiece is thinner than recommended then an additional plate, made of suitable
material should be added by clamping to the workpiece, this will help the electro-magnet
become more secure.
BEFORE using the drill always ensure the magnet is held onto the work piece securely.
18
PB35 - US - W18XC699/US - Revised 271113
OPERATION - REVERSING OF THE HANDLES
The three handles (A) which raise and lower the drill unit are
attached to the pinion shaft (B).
These handles and the pinion shaft itself can be turned
around so the handles can be used on each side of the
machine. This is useful if access is limited on one side of
the machine because of the machines location.
B
The handles are normally mounted on the same side as the
controls, if they need to be reversed the following procedure
should be used.
A
First, the drill unit and its slide should either be supported or
put into its lowest position to prevent the risk of it falling
when the pinion is disengaged.
The hexagon head cap screw in the end of the pinion shaft
end cap (C) should be unscrewed.
C
The pinion shaft end cap can then be removed, the pinion
shaft and handle assembly can be withdrawn.
The pinion shaft and handle assembly can then be mounted
on the opposite side of the machine, taking care to ensure
the pinion gear teeth engage with the rack teeth.
The pinion shaft end cap and its hexagon head cap screw
should then be replaced and re-tightened.
OPERATION - NORMAL OPERATOR POSITION
The normal operator position is as shown in the image on
the right, in general it is best to use the machine from in
front of the control panel so that all the operator controls are
visible and easily accessed.
There are occasions with this type of machine that it is used
horizontally or even upside down. Extra care should be
taken in these circumstances and access to the machine
controls should be maintained at all times.
The pinion shaft can be reversed on this type of machine to
allow the drill better access in confined spaces. When the
handles are reversed, again the operator should still have
full access to the control panel before using the machine.

PB35 - US - W18XC699/US - Revised 271113
OPERATION - USING THE DRILL WITH ANNULAR CUTTERS
Insert the correct pilot pin into the pilot pin hole through the shank of the cutter.
Mount the cutter in the tool holder (arbor) of the machine as described in previous
chapters, ensuring the cutter is secure and correctly fitted.
Position the machine on the work piece ensuring the magnet is on a flat clean ferrous
surface and the work piece is not below the minimum recommended thickness.
Use the pilot pin to align the centre of the cutter to the desired hole position.
Switch on the magnet and physically check the machine is securely adhered to the work
piece.
Once in position, attach the safety strap, if the magnetic adhesion fails for some reason
the safety strap will arrest movement of the machine.
Apply cutting fluid or coolant which is fed down through the central pin hole to the cutter.
The use of cutting fluid will enhance the quality of the cut and prolong the life of the
cutter.
Ensure the safety guard provided is fitted.
Switch on the drill motor, feed the cutter down by using the three handles provided.
Proceed with caution, apply pressure gradually until the cutter has formed a groove of
approx 3mm (1/8”). Once a groove is established the pressure can be increased.
DO NOT apply excessive pressure, if excessive pressure is required it is a sign the cutter
may be worn, continuing to use a worn cutter will result in damage to the drill motor.
If the drill motor slows significantly under load ease off the downward pressure.
On deep holes it may be necessary to withdraw the cutter to remove swarf and to apply
more cutting fluid.
A cutter in good condition will need only moderate feed pressure and will produce
continuous chips or swarf. Broken chips or swarf indicate a cutter or material problem, so
care should be taken.
OPERATION - BLOCKAGES OF CHIPS AND WORKPIECE FRAGMENTS
If excessive swarf builds up during the cut it may be necessary to withdraw the cutter to
remove the swarf, care should be taken as the swarf will be both hot and sharp.
As the cutter begins to break through, the feed pressure should be reduced slightly.
When the cutter breaks through, a slug of material at the centre of the cut will be ejected.
This will be both hot and sharp. Care should be taken when handling the slug.
Care should be taken that the ejection slug is safe and can not injure anyone in the
vicinity, the slug should be prevented from falling where possible.

MAINTENANCE - TOOL USE AND CARE
Always ensure the work piece is secure and stable before attempting to work on it.
Do not force the tool, always use the correct type of cutting tool for your application and
use it at the rate it was designed to work at.
Do not use the power tool if the power switch does not turn it on or off, any tool which can
not be turned on or off with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired before use.
Always disconnect the plug from the power supply before making any adjustments,
changing accessories or storing the tool. This will prevent the risk of the starting the tool
accidentally.
Always store tools not in use out of reach of children and untrained persons. Tools are
dangerous in the hands of an untrained user.
Maintain all cutting tools with care, keep them sharp and clean, properly maintained tools
with sharp edges are less likely to bind and will be easier to control.
Do not operate the power tool with dull or damaged cutting tools, this may overload the
motor.
Check the power tools periodically for misalignment or binding of moving parts, also
broken parts or any other condition that may affect the tools operation. If damaged have
the tool serviced before using, Poorly maintained tools can cause accidents.
Use only Powerbor recommended accessories, accessories made for other power tools
may not be suitable and could become hazardous when used.
SERVICE the power tool properly with the carrying handles provided.
Only trained repair personnel should perform tool service. Service or maintenance
performed by untrained personnel could result in a risk of injury.
When servicing the power tool, only use identical replacement parts, pay attention to the
power tools voltage rating and model number to ensure the correct replacement parts are
specified.
