SAFETY
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
110V Operation
The Shop Fox® W1680 Drill Press is supplied for
110 volt operation, only. The motor supplied
with your new drill press is rated at 1 horse
power and will draw approximately 10 amps.
When choosing an outlet for this machine, consider using one with a 15 amp circuit breaker or
fuse. Keep in mind that a circuit being used by
other machines or tools at the same time will
add to the electrical load being applied by the
drill press. Add up the load ratings of all
machines on the circuit. If this number exceeds
the rating of the circuit breaker or fuse, use a
different outlet.
This equipment must be grounded. Verify
that any existing electrical outlet and circuit
you intend to plug into is actually grounded.
If it is not, it will be necessary to run a separate 12 A.W.G. copper grounding wire from
the outlet to a known ground. Under no circumstances should the grounding pin from
any three-pronged plug be removed. Serious
injury may occur.
Extension Cords
When it is necessary to use an extension cord,
use the following guidelines:
•Use cords rated for Hard Service
•Never exceed a length of 100 feet
•Use cords with 14 ga. wire or bigger
•Insure cord has a ground wire and pin
•Do not use cords in need of repair
Grounding
Never remove grounding pin.
This machine must be grounded! See Figure 1.
The electrical cord supplied with the W1680
comes with a grounding pin. Do not remove it.
If your outlet does not accommodate a ground
pin, have it replaced by a qualified electrician
or have an appropriate adapter installed. Please
note: when using an adapter, the adapter must
be grounded.

means of a drill chuck arbor. Matched tapers on
the arbor and the back of the chuck create an
almost permanent assembly when properly
joined. To assemble the drill chuck and mount it
to the spindle, carefully follow the instructions
below:
Many of the solvents commonly used to
clean machinery can be highly flammable,
and toxic when inhaled or ingested. Always
work in well-ventilated areas far from
potential ignition sources when dealing
with solvents. Use care when disposing of
waste rags and towels to be sure they do
not create fire or environmental hazards.
Keep children and animals safely away
when cleaning and assembling this machine.

Figure 18. Chuck components identification.
1. The drill chuck, arbor and spindle socket
must be thoroughly cleaned before assembly. It is recommended that mineral spirits
be used for this task. Refer to the safety
warnings on the container of the mineral
spirits. Failure to clean the mating surfaces
may result in separation and wear.
2. Use the chuck key provided to adjust the
jaws of the chuck until they are well inside
the drill chuck body.
Figure 19. Seating the arbor into chuck.
3. Place the drill chuck on a workbench face
down. The arbor has a short taper and a
long taper. Place the short taper into the
socket in the back of the drill chuck and tap
with a rubber or wooden mallet. See Figure
19. If the chuck fails to remain secure on
the arbor, repeat step 1 and 2. Do not use
excessive force. The drill chuck and arbor
may be damaged.
Do not use gasoline or other petroleumbased solvents to remove this protective
coating. These products generally have low
flash points which makes them extremely
flammable. A risk of explosion and burning
exists if these products are used. Serious
personal injury may occur.
DO NOT use a steel hammer on the drill chuck
to seat it onto the spindle. Damage will occur
to the chuck and/or spindle which may make
them unusable or unsafe.
-14-
4. Slide the arbor into the spindle socket while
slowly rotating drill chuck. The socket has a
rectangular pocket in which the tang (or flat
portion of the arbor) fits into. Once the tang
is oriented correctly the drill chuck will not
rotate without turning the spindle.
5. Tap the end of the drill chuck with a rubber
or wooden mallet to seat the drill chuck.
See Figure 20.
