Re: Drill Presses Safety question
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.

if it is a round red button, twist it and pull out
because of safety reasons much of machinery now has this type of control switch so that in an emergency the button is pressed and the machine stops and it stays locked off
usually that requires special fixtures to remove the collar and a press, I would recommend cleaning with WD-40 and wiping clean all exposed parts and if you have compressed air try using that also, WEAR safety glasses.
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.
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. There should be holes around the outside, usually in the 4 corners that are there for bolting the base to the floor using expandable anchors in concrete. hope this helps you, Jeepfxr
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.
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.
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.
