The Slugger JCM 200 U Portable Magnetic Drill is ideally suited for on-site construction, MRO in-plant applications, workshops, and fabricating operations. In addition to its light weight, the drill offers many unique features that go beyond just holemaking with annular cutters. It performs tapping, reaming, and countersinking operations without requiring special adapters or arbors. These features make it an ideal tool for precision holemaking when retrofitting or repairing in-plant machines. It’s just 30.6 lb, making it easy to position even when drilling overhead. Its top, forward-facing control panel is in direct line of sight of the operator and can clearly be seen during use.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
