This usually occurs if the motor is overheating and the internal circuit breaker is tripping. After it cools down, it self resets. This can be caused by bad bearings or parts dragging the motor down, making it work hard enough to over heat and trip the breaker. If you are running it on an extension cord or circuit that isn't able to provide it with the amps it needs the motor will overheat and trip the breaker also.

Operating tips for a drill press

the drill press shaft has a taper in the end and a slot in the side The chuck you will use will have a taper in the back and the adaptor will be tapered to fit in the shaft. The slot is to put in a tapered drift to remove the chuck assembly so that larger drills with tapered shanks can be used. Most twist drills stop at 1/2 inch but reduced shank drills are available with 1/2 ''shank but a bit size up to say 3/4'' After that you will need taper shank drills.. If the drill shaft has a hole from top to bottom you can use special router bits that allow for ma threaded rod to hold them in during milling otherwise the chuck will vibrate and come loose and fall out. It is essential to select the right speed for the drill size being used and I have found that by using combination vices that allow the job to be moved in - out and side ways the jobs you can do are limited by your imagination

To change drums you have to remember it is reverse thread. If the nut will not because the drum keeps turning you need to either squeeze the drum or hold the shaft near the bottom where the fins are. At least this is my experience with the Porter Cable oscillating spindle sander.

My ryobi oss450 has stoped oscillating. Is there anything I can do to repair it? It operates just fine except for the oscillating.

You can try taking it apart and cleaning the mechanism that makes it oscillate, but i have found most times when those stop they are just wore out and need replaced. Those sanders are pretty much disposable.

On the Bench Oscillating Spindle Sander how do you lock the spindle so that you can remove the bolt at the top to change the sanding sleeve? When I try to loosen the bolt the spindle turns and I don't have...

Remove the spindle from the machine itself before you change the sanding sleeve. There should be a flat section on the bottom of each spindle that you can hook a wrench on to hold it while you undo the top bolt.
