Before connecting a drill press to a power source be sure that the voltage supply is the same as that specified on the nameplate of the tool. A power source with a voltage greater than that specified for the tool can result in serious injury to the user, as well as damage to the tool. Using a power source with a voltage less than the nameplate rating is harmful to the motor. Also, when operating the drill press, use safety equipment including safety goggles or shield, ear protection and protective clothing including safety gloves; Keep the area free of tripping hazards; Periodically check that all nuts, bolts and other fixings are properly tightened; Never use your hands to remove dust, chips or waste close by the drill bit.

I am considering buying this used drill press. How do I change speeds on this drill?


If the drill press has multiple pulleys, you move the drive belt up and down. Larger motor pulley to smaller drill pulley has higher speeds, and vice versa.

I would like to know what inspections/maintenence should be performed on drill presses, say monthly and than yearly. I want my machine to stay in tip top shape.


Depending on how much the Drill Press is used will determine the maintenance required.
For light to moderate usage a monthly clean and lubrication of turning / sliding parts with a general inspection of drive belts and pulleys will be sufficient. Heavier usage will require more frequent cleaning, lubrication and inspection.
Yearly maintenance will be the same as the monthly check with possible replacement of the drive belt if showing signs of wear or deterioration such as cracking and checking bearings of drive motor for signs of wear or noisy operation. If possible, an electrical safety check should also be carried out at this time by a suitably qualified person.

Best way to attach drill press base to cement floor ? 3/4hp. ITS.


The slots are there so you can use them to clamp work down to the base such as long objects that you need to drill into the end of.

Release the belts and check if you can turn the chuck by habd, if the chuck won;t turn, two things could be wrong, 1) the quill bearings are bad or 2) the shaft that runs down thru the quill could ve rusted causing a restriction, if that's the case, WD 40 should loosen it.

Drill Presses Installation


Here are a few instructions to follow while installing a Drill Press: Fix the column support to the base using the three screws provided. Slide the table clamp onto the column and align the table with the base and secure it in position using the table clamp lock. Place the head assembly onto the column and slide it down the column as far as possible. Align the head with the table and base and tighten the head locking grub screws with the hex key. Fit the depth scale. Attach the feed wheel. Secure the feed wheel in place with the cap screw using the hex key. Fit the chuck safety shield over the collar of the spindle nose and tighten the clamp screw. Carefully clean out the tapered hole in the chuck and the spindle taper using a clean cloth. Hinge up the shield. Push the chuck onto the spindle and lightly tap the chuck with a piece of wood to ensure proper fitting.

Drill Presses Features


You compare the following features: Horsepower (HP) is the maximum power produced by the motor. Higher horsepower allows you to bore larger holes through tougher material. Drill presses are available with motors from 1/4 to 1 HP. Size/center drilling capacity is determined by the distance from the center of the chuck to the column. Since the press can bore a hole in a circle with a diameter two times the distance from the center of the chuck to the column, the size is listed as twice the distance from the column to the center of the chuck. A 16" drill press can drill a hole up to 8" from the edge of a straight board or at the center of a 16" diameter circle. Variable speeds allow you to drill different diameter holes through different materials without damaging the material or drill bits. Drill presses are available with five to twelve speed settings. The more speed settings, the more versatile the drill press. The table on most drill presses can be raised and lowered along the entire length of the column. It can also swivel 360° around the column for boring oddly shaped pieces. Better presses have large, tilting tables with fences. Quill travel determines the depth to which the press can bore holes. Greater quill travel allows you to bore deeper holes. Depth-stops control the depth to which the quill descends and limit the depth of the hole. Depth-stops are good for repetitive boring and dowel holes. The more precise your depth-stops, the more accurate your boring operations.
