Good Working Practices/Safety
The following suggestions will enable you to observe good working
practices, keep yourself and fellow workers safe and maintain your
tools and equipment in good working order.
!
WARNING!!
KEEP TOOLS AND EQUIPMENT OUT
OF THE REACH OF YOUNG CHILDREN
Mains Powered Tools and Machines
Primary Precautions
These machines are supplied with a molded 13 Amp Plug and 3 core power cable. Before
using the machine inspect the cable and the plug to make sure that neither are damaged. If
any damage is visible, have the damaged item inspected/repaired by a suitably qualified
person. If it is necessary to replace the plug, it is preferable to use an 'unbreakable' type
that will most resist damage. Only use a 13 Amp plug, and make sure the cable clamp is
tightened securely. Fuse as required. If extension leads are to be used, carry out the same
safety checks on them, and ensure that they are correctly rated to safely supply the current
that is required for your machine. Remember, most machines or tools have handles or
holding positions, the power cable is not one of them!
Work Place/Environment
The machine is not designed for use outside. Keep the machine clean; it will enable you to
more easily see any damage that may have occurred. Clean the machine with a damp
soapy cloth if needs be, do not use any solvents or cleaners, as these may cause damage
to any plastic parts or to the electrical components.
Keep the work area as uncluttered as is practical, this includes personnel as well as
material.
Under no circumstances should CHILDREN be allowed in work areas.
It is good practice to leave the machine unplugged until work is about to commence, also
make sure to unplug the machine when it is not in use, or unattended. To avoid inadvertent
'start up'; if your machine is not fitted with a NVR system, ensure the switch is always
returned to the OFF position. Once you are ready to commence work, remove any tools,
objects or items that could inadvertently get 'sucked up' by the machine (if any) and place
safely out of the way.
Re-connect the machine, ensuring the power cable is not 'snagged' or routed where it could
be tripped over as you move about the workshop; it is not too close to an unguarded heat
source, or is laid over or around a sharp edge.
If the work you are carrying out is liable to generate flying grit, dust or chips, wear the
appropriate safety clothing, goggles, gloves, masks etc. If the work operation appears to be
excessively noisy, wear ear-defenders.

Work Place/Environment (Continued)
If you wear your hair in a long style, wearing a cap, safety helmet, hairnet, even a
sweatband, will minimise the possibility of your hair being caught up in the rotating parts of
the machine, likewise, consideration should be given to the removal of rings and
wristwatches if these are liable to be a 'snag' hazard. Consideration should also be given to
non-slip footwear, etc.
DO NOT work with cutting or boring tools of any description if you are tired, your attention
is wandering or you are being subjected to distraction. A deep cut, a lost fingertip or worse;
is not worth it!
DO NOT use this machine within the designated safety areas of flammable liquid stores or
in areas where there may be volatile gases. There are very expensive, very specialised
machines for working in these areas, THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM.
Above all, OBSERVE…. make sure you know what is happening around you, and USE
YOUR COMMON SENSE.
IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU WEAR EAR PROTECTION IF YOU ARE USING THIS
MACHINE.
Specific Safety for Drilling Machines...
1. DO NOT operate the machine without carrying out a preliminary inspection.
2. Check that the speed is correct for the planned operation, and the upper drive belt cover
is closed and fastened secure.
3. Check the drill bit is the correct size and type, is correctly fitted and tightened in the
chuck.
4. Make sure that the drill head, the table bracket arm, the table tilt and the table swivel
clamps are all locked before any drilling is attempted.
5. Do not attempt to carry out any drilling operation on material that has not been secured
to the drill table, either by vice or clamp.
6. Remove any tools (chuck key, spanners etc), that may have been used in setting up
operations and put them away in their correct storage positions.
7. Try to arrange the drilling operation so that the drill tip does not come in contact with the
table.
8. Always allow the drill to stop before removing drilling or swarf from around the job or the
table.

9. NEVER remove 'flying' swarf strands from the drill whilst it is turning.
10. It is a good precaution to wear eye protection when drilling, especially using small drills,
or very hard material that produces small chips.
11. It is not a good idea to wear gloves when operating a drill press.
12. After the job is completed, remove all tools and accessories from the machine, check
that drill bits are still sharp and re-useable. Clean the machine down thoroughly, including
removing coolant or cutting compounds from the drill table. Lightly coat all metal surfaces
with a light oil coating. Disconnect the machine from the supply. Secure the cable/plug clear
of the floor.

Assemble the Depth (4) collar and ring (3) onto the column firmly.
(Fig 2)
Insert the Star Knob (2) complete with the two clamp bushes (21, 22) into the headstock
location.
Make sure the two cut outs are lined up towards the rear so as to allow the column to slide
past them.
Slide the headstock onto the column (6), you can see down the hole to make sure the
clamp cut outs mentioned above are clear of the column. When the column is completely
through the headstock casting you can tighten the Star Knob to clamp the headstock into
position.
Clean the spindle of any grease or oil and push the drill chuck (10) onto the spindle firmly.
Turn the chuck to make sure it is tight.
Put the handle (5) into the handle socket (7) and tighten with the wrench provided.

Operation of the Micro Drill...
AXMINSTER
W H I T E
Setting headstock level (Figs 1 & 2)
Loosen the hex screw securing the depth collar (4) and adjust to the height required to
prevent damage to the headstock by sudden dropping of the headstock.
Adjusting the headstock height (Fig 2)
Loosen the Star knob (2) whilst supporting the weight and move to the desired height.
Adjusting the spindle speed (Figs 6, 7, 8)
Drilling different size holes in differing hardness of materials requires a choice of drilling
speeds.
There is a choice of two belt ratios an well as the variable motor speed range. To change
the belt speed, loosen the two screws on the belt cover and remove the cover. Move the
belt to the ratio required. There is no need to slacken the motor mounts to change the
speeds. Refit belt cover.
Digital Read Out (DRO) (Fig 5)
For normal drilling operations press the ON/OFF switch first, and then press the “ZERO”
button. Press “mm/in” button to select metric or imperial readings. These two buttons can
be effected regardless of the down feed handle position, then you can start drilling. The
readings on the display can be amended at any time by pressing “plus” or “minus” buttons.
When displaying error (e.g. no readings or flashing) it means the batteries are low and need
replacing.
Push against the arrow showing in (Fig 5a & 5b) to open the battery cover, withdraw the
batteries for replacement. The voltage of the Zinc button batteries is 1.2 volts. After
replacement, re-fit the cover.
Depth pre-setting (Fig 3a)
Turn the dial ring on the handle shank until the “0” scale is in line with the “0” scale on the
spring base.
Calculate the required drilling depth and turn the dial ring to the desired reading and tighten
the locking grub screw on the dial ring. Turn the handle to check the drilling depth is
reached when the two “0s” meet.
Fine feed function (Figs 4 & 4d)
Press in the small knurled knob on the LH side of the headstock, (you may have to turn the
fine feed knob a small amount to permit engagement), when it is fully engaged the fine feed
knob will lower the spindle assembly very slowly. To free off the fine feed you will need to
return the spindle back to its upper position. Then pull out the small knurled knob.
Switch arrangement (Figs 4a &4b)
The small rocker switch on the side of the headstock will illuminate when switched on. Now
turn the speed control knob from “0” to “I” when you will hear a click. Continue to turn the
knob clockwise when the motor will start and you can then control the speed as required.
Always stop the motor by turning the speed control knob fully anti-clockwise to “0”. If the
machine is switched off via the rocker switch or unplugged whilst the motor is running then
the speed control will need to be returned to “0” and then turned clockwise as above before
the motor will start again.

Routine Maintenance...
!
WARNING!!
Disconnect the machine from the Mains Supply
Excessive dust in the motor can cause excessive heat to develop. Every effort should be
made to prevent foreign material from entering the motor. When operated under conditions
likely to permit accumulations of dust, dirt or waste, a visual inspection should be made at
frequent intervals.
Accumulations of dry dust can usually be blown out successfully.
!
Caution: To avoid eye injury or adverse reaction to dust, high pressure hoses
should not be used especially in poorly ventilated areas. The operator performing this
cleaning function should wear safety goggles and dust filter mask.
After cleaning all dust and debris, a light coating of machine oil or spray oil on the quill then
exercising to spread the oil all over.
If the machine is going to stand idle for any length of time, a light coat of spray or machine
oil over the column and table will prevent rusting.
!
Do not use the machine if the power cable has become damaged.
If any servicing (other than the above cleaning) becomes necessary the unit should be
returned to your supplier or repaired by a qualified electrician.
