    Probably the one most suitable for the task at hand?

    For what?

    To be honest ours stays mainly on the middle groove and we go from high to low. That's only 'cause we are lazy!! (and that's why I've just bought a gear head drill!)

    fast for small drills slow for big ones and use cutting compound there are charts with exact speed but its not that critical . just one offs quarter speed does all :laughing:

    Mine stays around the centre position and I use the VFD to tweak the speed, unless I've got a large drill or am tapping.

    Mild steel.
    I typically drill holes between 5mm - 25mm and am always changing hole sizes to suit bespoke jobs.

    me, I'm lucky...have roughly 8 pillar drill's, plus 2 high speed/drills (10,000 and above....plus 2 mills....
    have drill bits of common sizes fitted to the drill machine....need a diff size hole just use a diff machine.....
    only then do I alter speeds for special holes and then prob easier to use the mill and a rotor broach cutter......
    U CAN never have enough pillar drills.....hahaha.......
