Question about Craftsman 3/8 in. Drill Press Bit, Mortising Chisel
We are marking all of the books that are being moved into our honor system library by drilling a 3/8" hole in the upper left corner on a drill press. What is the best bit to use?
If you use a brad point bit or forstner bit or any bit that cuts around the circumference of the hole, you will create a disc of paper (several pages thick) that will spin at the bottom of the hole and impede your drilling, so those are out. If you use a standard twist drill you get a very rough hole and the pages tend to lift up. The simplest and cheapest is a standard twist drill but with scraps wood above and below the book, clamping the book tight. You might try a plug cutter that has an exit hole for the little discs of paper. Or, use a paper drill bit, these are about $40 and I have never tried one.

If this is a new tool I would take it back and get it replaced. The only other way to eliminate this problem is to determine if it is the spindle or the chuck and replace the defective unit. Warranty works better.

It is unless there is a tang on the end. What you need to do is thoroughly clean the parts with something like brake clean to remove all the oil and then wipe with a clean paper towel. What I do it put the arbor into the drill press or the chuck onto the arbor and then put a 2x4 on the table and press the parts together or if you have enough room fully retract the jaws and use the block of wood to "tap" the parts to seat them. Let me know if you need more assistance

Testimonial: "Thanks rowdy45176. Your solution was spot-on. I cleaned both sides and them , with the chuck jaws fully retracted, tapped it with a plastic mallet"
First you have to determine if it is the spindle or the chuck assembly. I would go to ereplacementparts.com and look at a breakdown for this tool so you know what the parts look like and then go from there. I couldn't find the schematic on the Ryobi site.

Not sure if you ever found the manual for this model number. I just picked one up at a garage sale last weekend and it actualy had the manual with it. Doesn't really go into any overhaul of the machine, but does have a exploded view of the parts.
