You have to get yourself out of the woodworking machinery mode where they
put relatively big motors on weenie little machines. Metalworking equipment
is quite the opposite. Large, heavy castings for ridgity, not overpowered.
This thing is meant to take a quarter inch chuck. In metal working terms,
that means quarter inch drill, maximum. The Burgmasters are generally seen
drilling and tapping 10-32 holes, reaming eighth inch holes, ect. No, they
don't have much power. Quarter horse, possibly half but I doubt it. As for
weight, I picked one up and carried it across the shop about a year ago
(without stand). Figure maybe 160 pounds. Hefty little guy.
