The 1.5 HP is a production machine as far as I know..I have drilled 3/4 holes in 2" bar stock with mine as well as ran some 3 1/2 hole saws thru 3/16 metal..just be careful to use sharp tools lots of cutting oil and light feed pressure and let the tool do the cutting..Works for me..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
