Lamina Portable Hydraulic Drills are powerful and compact.
They are used in steel
fabrication and other
industries to drill or
tap holes from 13/16” to
4”. A magnetic base
attaches to the drilling
surface for vertical or horizontal work at virtually any
angle. The drill can be fixtured to allow step drilling
of larger diameters. The heavy-duty, low-maintenance hydraulic power units are built for continuous
operation in difficult conditions. The hydraulic unit
uses the hydraulic/electronic technology and is
mounted on a cart for mobility. It is 44½” long x
24½” wide x 54½” high. A remote pendant control
includes start-and-stop, speed control and for-
ward/reverse buttons. The system includes all cables

tool is two- to

holes in the web.
It contacts the outside of the flange at the center line
of the web, as shown on structural blueprints for fabricators. Generally, layout people measure from the
top of the flange to get to the first hole gauge. If
flanges are tipped in or out (not square), the holes
will be off. This presents a problem for erectors, because when things don’t line up, the job cannot be
completed on schedule, and everyone is thrown off
