Powerbor PB70/2 and PB70FRV bring real versatility to the workshop or onsite.

We have remodelled the former PB70 into the PB70 FRV.
This exercise involved making the front panel less cluttered and more ergonomic, the speed and torque controls are now placed on the drill unit so they can be accessed during use.
The electrical components and wiring of the control panel have been simplified for ease of maintenance and repair.
All of the functionality of the former PB70 has been retained.

The PB70/2 remains our base model 70mm capacity MT3 machine,
The PB70 FRV has all the features of the PB70/2 plus FWD/REV for tapping, electronically variable speed with feedback, torque boost and both load current and thermal overload.
So for basic drilling up to 70mm the PB70/2 is the best choice.
For more advanced drilling and tapping and precise speed control, the PB70 FRV is the best option.

Why use the Powerbor Blue cutter; a unique G&J Hall product

Better is best; here’s why the Powerbor Blue cutter is a winner for improved performance and tool life
Distinctive ‘blue’ finish provides improved cutter properties and improved cutting performance
Improved wear resistance, reducing friction and minimizing ‘pick up’ of work piece material
Greatly enhanced cutting tool life – three times longer – even without coolant; the cutter doesn’t cost three times as much; so you’re getting more cutter for less cost.
Less stress on the drilling machine motor, leading to longer machine life

Another successful time at Silverstone at the Troy Means Business Show

Jon Ede G&J Hall National Sales Manager; “It was good to meet up with so many Troy members at the recent Troy Show for 2015. We offered a special package deal for orders on the day only. Two machines; the Powerbor PB35 and the PB35FRV www.powerbor.co.uk  and we were pleased with the response with good orders taken on our Stand 12 Hall Monza at Silverstone”

“The Show gave us an opportunity to discuss the new machines that are to be added to the Powerbor range later this year and we also introduced the all new Revo 351 Mag Drill as an addition to our entry range www.revo-tools.co.uk  The R351 is a really versatile machine at a good price; with cutter capacity of 12mm to 35mm and a twist drill capacity of 13mm, depth of cut 50mm, motor input power of 1200W and coolant as standard, it was good to see the interest this new machine received from members.

“Employers know how best to inspire young people about their future”. Continued success of GUTS in Sheffield

For the 5th year in succession, local Companies and Rotherham and Sheffield Councils rallied round to support the annual Get Up To Speed interactive Careers Fayre, which was held at The Magna Science Adventure Centre on April 22nd.  Organised by a local charity The work-wise Foundation and Very Creative Ltd this year’s “Get Up To Speed” affectionately known as GUTS, has broken all records with over 1,850 visitors, exhibitors and attractions.
This highly successful event is recognized as the most influential and largest event of its kind in Yorkshire, giving young people an insight into the career opportunities in engineering, manufacturing and technology. Employers know best the world of work, they know best what skills and aptitudes they need, and they know how best to inspire young people about their future, so it makes absolute sense that local companies come together to provide this incredibly engaging, informative and fun careers event.
