How do you attach black/white connectors?

The electrical connections behind the on/off switch are not connected. We need directions as to which prongs to attach the white and black connectors to.

Sounds like either the positive or negative or a ground. To determine either a positive or negative you can use a multimeter, to check continuity with the press unplugged. You could also see if there are wires connecting to the connections that are on the press and match the color up to your loose wires. If you connect them wrong and they are a positive or negative wire, the worse it would probably do is run the press in the wrong direction. Then you would just switch them out. A normal drill bit will run in a clock wise motion to bore.

I have a Drill press 16 Speed, Model BT1001A and the On/Off Switch and light switch has all been removed. How do they go back on the switch and the sequence? How do I get access online to the schematic...

This is a difficult question. There are Euro, American and Chinese motors used, the most common is the chinese one phase motor at 110 volts. This is again complicated by the fact the chinese changed the hookups between 1999 and present models. In 1999 the Grizzly type clones from China had a six screw terminal block with the supply wires being: BLUE, BROWN, BROWN, BLACK, GREEN/YELLOW. with U1=BLUE, V1=BRN, Z1=nil, Z2=BRN, U2=BLK, V2=nil and you could reverse the direction of rotation by reversing the two brown wires on V1 and Z2. The new chineese wiring has made some changes to this and can be viewed on the details of any eBay site selling new Grizzly metal lathes of the 12X36 size of which they make about 9 varieties, keep reviewing each one, there are about two ads that give actual pictures of the new terminal blocks they use which have two flat bar jumpers right in the block and they use different terminals within the six on the motor.
My example is for a 1999 Chineese electric motor for the AT-400 Lathe/Drill/Mill which uses a generic
WANNAN 1 phase electric motor 3/4 HP, 1700 rpm, 11.0 Amps, 110 Volts, Date 99/7
American and Euro wiring tends to have other colors like white, orange, etc. and up to twelve of them so you have to research the exact motor, where it was made, and what date to get the right info. then you have to draw diagrams to match your switch wire hookup to the plate which is on the motor just beside the terminal block. Mine had two reversing switches and two motors plus another switch which selected between power to the mill or power to the lathe. Using the above color codes it worked right the first time only because I researched and then charted out every wire and did continuity testing to ensure functionality without worn-through or loose contacts. Also, unplug the machine and leave unplugged overnight before touching the wires as the capacitors carry a big charge at high voltage and hold it a long time.

Depth collar broke. can't find part.

You have a couple of choices here. The quick fix is to go to any hardware store and buy a set of depth collars that you attach directly to the bit using an allen wrench. The second choice is to tell me your brand name, and model number and I can probably locate a replacement part for you.

Need parts list and manuals to hook up

the wiring will be a color to color scheme. White to White, Black to black, greento green. If you are wiring to a cord cap, green wire to green screw, black wire to gold screw, white wire to silver screw. In the press wires may not be same color, look for wres marked L1, L2

Delta drill press model DP350 went out while using it

Check for power at the on switch. The switch on this machine should be electrical so yes it could go out. If it is not the electrical type then I would check to make sure that the internal switch did not brake or go bad.
