FP60 Paper Drilling Machine Review

FP60 Paper Drill / File Pecker Paper Drilling MachineDo you need to drill holes through up to 2 ½” of paper at a time and are in the market for a paper drilling machine? If this is the case, you may want to look at the FP60 paper drill (found here). This is my review.

To begin with, the FP60 is one of the least expensive paper drills with a 2 ½” drilling capacity. It has a single spindle that can be used to drill one or multiple holes in a stack of paper. Multiple holes will require multiple passes.

One little known fact about the FP60 is that the FP stands for File Pecker. No, I’m not kidding. So you can refer to this as the FP60 or the File Pecker 60. Either way, it can drill (or peck) through a lot of paper.

The base of the FP60 is capable of handling paper as long as 14-inches, however, most people use this drill for drilling holes in letter-size paper.

While the drill on the FP60 is electrically powered, the drilling pressure is manually applied. This is done by pulling down on a handle. Very little effort is required to drill through paper as the sharp drill bit quickly cuts through paper.

The FP60 uses a style F drill bit, which is available in several different diameters. You can find our style F drill bits here. The FP60 comes with one ¼” drill bit with the purchase of the machine.

Unlike many paper drills out there, the FP60’s drill bit spindle is attached directly to the drilling shaft. This cuts down on vibrations and noise, making the FP60 ideal to use around other people.

This drill weighs in at 65 pounds shipped. This means it is pretty heavy duty, but you should still be able to use it on most desks and counter surfaces.

The overall build quality is exceptional. A metal housing, metal components and a metal handle show that the FP60 means business.

The FP60 is also available in a version called the FP60-LS (found here). The LS version is equipped with two pre-programmed bars. These guide bars are set up for easy single hole, two holes and three hole drilling. Just press the table release to move the paper to the next stop for fast accurate drilling.
