MOTOR SPECIFICATIONS
Your machine is wired for 115 volt, 60 HZ alternating current. Before connecting the machine to the power source, make
sure the switch is in the “OFF” position.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
THIS MACHINE MUST BE GROUNDED WHILE IN USE TO PROTECT THE OPERATOR FROM
ELECTRIC SHOCK.
1. All grounded, cord-connected machines:
2. Grounded, cord-connected machines intended for
use on a supply circuit having a nominal rating less than
150 volts:
In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding
provides a path of least resistance for electric current to
reduce the risk of electric shock. This machine is equipped
with an electric cord having an equipment-grounding
conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged
into a matching outlet that is properly installed and grounded
in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
If the machine is intended for use on a circuit that has an
outlet that looks like the one illustrated in Fig. A, the machine
will have a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated
in Fig. A. A temporary adapter, which looks like the adapter
illustrated in Fig. B, may be used to connect this plug to a
matching 2-conductor receptacle as shown in Fig. B if a
properly grounded outlet is not available. The temporary
adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet
can be installed by a qualified electrician. The green-colored
rigid ear, lug, and the like, extending from the adapter must
be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly
grounded outlet box. Whenever the adapter is used, it must
be held in place with a metal screw.
Do not modify the plug provided - if it will not fit the outlet,
have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding
conductor can result in risk of electric shock. The
conductor with insulation having an outer surface that is
green with or without yellow stripes is the equipmentgrounding conductor. If repair or replacement of the electric
cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the equipmentgrounding conductor to a live terminal.
NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is not
permitted by the Canadian Electric Code.
Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if the
grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if
in doubt as to whether the machine is properly grounded.
IN ALL CASES, MAKE CERTAIN THAT THE
RECEPTACLE IN QUESTION IS PROPERLY
GROUNDED. IF YOU ARE NOT SURE,
HAVE A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN CHECK
THE RECEPTACLE.
Use only 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong grounding
type plugs and matching 3-conductor receptacles that
accept the machine’s plug, as shown in Fig. A.
Repair or replace damaged or worn cord immediately.

3. Grounded, cord-connected machines intended for
use on a supply circuit having a nominal rating
between 150 - 250 volts, inclusive:
You can have your drill press converted to 230 volt
operation.
A qualified electrician must perform this conversion. Should
you desire to have your drill press converted for 230 volt
operation, take your drill press to your local Authorized
Delta Service Center. You can call 800-223-7278 for the
location of the nearest Authorized Service Center.
When converted for 230 volt operation, your drill press is
intended for use on a circuit that has an outlet like the one
illustrated in Fig. C. After conversion to 230 volts, the drill
press will have a grounding plug that looks like the plug
illustrated in Fig. C.
Make sure the drill press is connected to an outlet having
the same configuration as the plug. No adapter is available
or should be used when the drill press is converted for 230
volts. If the drill press must be reconnected for use on a
different type of electrical circuit, the re-connection should
be made by qualified service personnel; and after reconnection, the tool should comply with all local codes and
ordinances.

or walk on the supporting surface, secure the machine base to
the supporting surface with an M8x1.25x125mm carriage head
screw, 8.5mm flat washer, 8.5mm lock washer, M8x1.25 hex nut
through the two holes (S) Fig. 9 located in the machine base.

MOUNTING THE DRILL PRESS ON A
PLYWOOD BASE
Fig. 9
If you do not fasten your machine permanently, then you must fasten the drill press to a plywood mounting board to prevent
it from tipping over. Use a good grade of 3/4" or thicker plywood. DO NOT make the mounting board from particle board.
1. Start with a 21" x 28" or larger piece of plywood. Drill two 3/8" diameter holes (B) Fig. 11 that match the mounting holes
(S) Fig. 9 of the drill press base.
2. Fasten the drill press base to the mounting board using the carriage bolts, flat washers, lockwashers, and hex nuts
(C) Fig. 10, furnished with your drill press. The holes for the carriage bolt heads and flat washers under the board
must be countersunk so that the bolt heads are flush or below the bottom surface of the board. Make sure to use
a flat washer, lock washer and hex nut above the drill press base.
The supporting board must extend a minimum of 3" beyond each edge of the drill press base (Fig. 11).
Secure the plywood base to the floor or supporting surface if the drill press has any tendency to vibrate, slide, or walk
during normal operation.

1. Insert the smooth end of drill bit (A) Fig. 25 in the chuck (B) as far as it will go, and then back the bit out 1/16" (or
up to the flutes for small bits).
2. Center the drill bit (A) Fig. 25 in the chuck (B) before tightening the chuck with the key (C).
3. Turn the chuck key (C) Fig. 25 clockwise to tighten and counterclockwise to loosen the chuck jaws.
4. Tighten all three chuck jaws to secure the drill bit sufficiently to prevent slipping.
5. Remove the chuck key (C) Fig. 25 from the chuck before starting the drill press. The chuck key (C) is equipped
with a self-ejecting pin (D) which helps minimize the potential for the key to be left in the chuck.
CORRECT DRILLING SPEEDS
Factors that determine the correct speed are 1) the workpiece, 2) the size of the hole, 3) the type of bit or other cutter,
and 4) the quality of cut.
Use the recommended speed for the drill press bit and workpiece.
DRILLING WOOD
Twist drills, usually intended for metal drilling, can also be used for boring holes in wood. However, machine spur bits
are generally preferred for working in wood. These bits cut a flat bottom hole and are designed for removal of wood
chips. Do not use hand bits which have a screw tip. At drill press speeds, they will lift and rotate the workpiece.
For through boring, align the workpiece so that the bit will go through the center hole in the table. Scribe a vertical line
on the front of the column and a matching mark on the table bracket and the drill press head, so that the table and drill
press head can be clamped in the center position at any height.
Feed the workpiece slowly when the bit is close to cutting through the wood to prevent splintering the bottom face.
Use a scrap piece of wood as a base block under the work. This helps to reduce splintering and protects the point of
the bit.
DRILLING METAL
Use clamps to hold the work when drilling metal. The workpiece should never be held in the bare hand. The drill bit
may seize the work at any time, especially when breaking through the stock. If the piece is jerked out of your hand,
you may be injured. The drill bit will be broken if the workpiece strikes the column.
Clamp the workpiece firmly while drilling. Any tilting, twisting, or shifting results not only in a rough hole, but also
increases drill bit breakage. For flat work, lay the workpiece on a wooden base and clamp it firmly against the table to
prevent it from turning. If the workpiece is of irregular shape and cannot lay flat on the table, it should be securely
blocked and clamped.
