Manual for a shopmate drill press

I have been given an old Shopmate 3/8 inch drill press and would like tips on how to use it. I have started upcyling projects and fairly new to power tools, but not completely green to them so would like some direction and if there are other uses which I can use the drill press for. The drill press came with what looks like a router bit (possible blunt because did not work well). I also have a hand oscillating tool (which was stolen) and wondering if I could use the bits from that on this press?? thanks....

SOURCE: Drill bit Stuck (and then broke off)!

b94710a.jpg078ca6c.jpg
Keyless chucks have two parts (see pictures) when the drill is in operation both parts spin. Assuming you put the drill bit in and tightened the keyless chuck by hand, put on a work glove and grasp the part of the chuck at the front of the drill, grasp the other part and twist the front part anti clockwise.
If this does not work you can hold the front of the chuck and reverse the direction of the motor as if you were unscrewing something, then pull the trigger. If your hand does not grasp the chuck tight enough it will slip, hence the glove. If this does not work you may have to hold the front of the chuck in a vice or with caliper pliers and again the pull the trigger with the drill in reverse.
All this depends on what you used to put the drill bit in with your hand tight or held onto it with something else. Whatever was used should be enough to loosen the chuck
Hope this helps.
If it does let fix ya know.
Cheers
Les

SOURCE: Dead DW972 Cordless Drill?

Easiest and safest: take the tool and batteries to nearest shop where they sell Dewalt. Ask the guy to let you use their batteries in your tool and vice versa, your batteries in their tool. DYI procedure:To check batteries: - if you have some multimeter, try to measure voltage and if possible also amps (but only for a fraction of the second, if battery is good, amperes shoudl jump up very quickly) - if you have no multimeter, try to find 12V bulb (check spare bulbs for your car), use wire to connect and it should light up. To check tool: open it up, take some 12V DC source, put wires on contacts inside the handle where battery connects. Pull the trigger and it should work. you can try to put wires directly to contacts on the motor. Follow cables from the switch to motor.

I'm not familiar with the brand. Check some older delta band saws for cross referencing. Taiwan imported band saws actually look like Delta bandsaws.

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

How do oscillating drill presses work? I have an old Craftsman 8 inch drill press with spindle sanding capability, but the spindle will not oscillate up and down.


Did you already read your manual for that drill press?if your manual is available there is an instruction on how the drill press work..I think the problem their is the shaft that can be found at the right of the drill press..maybe the error is that the wiring of the shaft.
