Use Only Accessories Designed For This Drill Press To Reduce The Risk of Serious Injury
From Thrown Broken Parts Or Work Pieces
• When cutting large diameter holes:
- Clamp the workpiece firmly to the table. Otherwise
the cutting may grab and spin it at high speed.
- Use only one piece, cup-type, hole cutters.
- Do not use fly cutters or multi-part hole cutters as
they can come apart or become unbalanced in use.
- Keep speed below 1500 R.P.M.
• Drum sanders must never be operated on this drill
press at a speed greater than 1800 R.P.M.
• Do not install or use any drill that exceeds 7” in length
or extends 6” below the chuck jaws. They can suddenly bend outward or break.
• Do not use wire wheels, router bits, shaper cutters, circle (fly) cutters or rotary planers on this drill press.
Kickback
• Kickback is the grabbing of the workpiece by the rotating tool. The workpiece can be thrown at very high
speed in the direction of rotation. This Can Cause
Serious Injury. To reduce the possibility of injury from
kickback:
• Clamp the workpiece firmly to the table whenever possible.
• Buffing or sanding wheels or drums should be contacted on the side moving away from you, not the side
moving toward you.

Think Safety
Safety is a combination of operator common sense and
alertness at all times when the drill press is being used.
WARNING: Do not allow familiarity (gained from
frequent use of your drill press) to become commonplace. Always remember that a careless fraction of a second is sufficient to inflict severe injury.
Plan Your Work
• Don’t force the tool. It will do the job better and safer at
the rate for which it was designed.
• Use the right tool. Don’t force tool or attachment to do
a job it was not designed to do.
• If any part of your drill press is missing, malfunctioning,
has been damaged or broken...such as the motor
switch, or other operating control, a safety device or
the power cord, turn the drill press off and unplug it
until the particular part is properly repaired or
replaced.

Safety Instructions For Drill Press (continued)
• To reduce the risk of injury from parts thrown by the
spring, follow instructions exactly as given and shown
in adjusting spring tension of quill.
• To prevent the workpiece from being torn from your
hands, spinning of the tool, shattering the tool or being
thrown, always properly support your work so it won’t
shift or bind on the tool:
- Always position backup material (use beneath the
workpiece) to contact the left side of the column.
- Whenever possible, position the workpiece to contact the left side of the column - If it is too short or the
table is tilted, clamp solidly to the table. Use table
slots or clamping ledge around the outside edge of
the table.
- When using a drill press vise, always fasten it to a
table.
- Never do any work “Freehand” (hand holding workpiece rather than supporting it on the table), except
when polishing.
- Securely lock head to column, table support to column and table to table support before operating drill
press.
- Never move the head or table while the tool is running.
•
•
•
•
•
- Before starting the operation, jog the motor switch to
make sure the drill or other cutting tool does not
wobble or cause vibration.
- If a workpiece overhangs the table such that it will
fall or tip if not held, clamp it to the table or provide
auxiliary support.
- Use fixtures for unusual operations to adequately
hold, guide and position workpiece.
- Use the spindle speed recommended for the specific
operation and workpiece material - check the inside
of the belt guard for drilling information; for accessories, refer to the instructions provided with the accessories.
Never climb on the drill press table, it could break or
pull the entire drill press down on you.
Turn the motor switch off and put away the switch key
when leaving the drill press.
To reduce the risk of injury from thrown work or tool
contact, do not perform layout, assembly or setup work
on the table while the cutting tool is rotating.
Don’t overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at
all times.
Maintain tools with care. Keep tools sharp and clean
for best and safest performance. Follow instructions for
lubricating and changing accessories.
Plan Ahead To Protect Your Eyes, Hands, Face and Ears
Dress for safety
• Do not wear loose clothing, gloves, neckties or jewelry
(rings, wrist watches). They can get caught and draw
you into moving parts.
• Wear nonslip footwear.
• Tie back long hair.
• Roll long sleeves above the elbow.
• Noise levels vary widely. To reduce the risk of possible
hearing damage, wear ear plugs or muffs when using
drill press for hours at a time.
• Any power tool can throw foreign objects into the eyes.
This can result in permanent eye damage. Always
wear safety goggles, not glasses complying with ANSI
Z87.1 (or in Canada CSA Z94-3-M88) shown on package. Everyday eyeglasses have only impact resistant
lenses. They are not safety glasses. Safety goggles
are available at many local retail stores. Glasses or
goggles not in compliance with ANSI or CSA could
seriously hurt you when they break.
• For dusty operations, wear a dust mask along with
safety goggles.
Reduce the Risk of Accidental Starting.
• Make sure switch is “OFF” before plugging drill press
into a power outlet.
WARNING: Don’t allow familiarity (gained from frequent use of your drill press) to cause a careless
mistake. Always remember that a careless fraction
of a second is enough to cause a severe injury.

110-120 Volt, 60 Hz. Tool Information
NOTE: The plug supplied on your tool may not fit into the
outlet you are planning to use. Your local electrical code
may require slightly different power cord plug connections. If these differences exist refer to and make the
proper adjustments per your local code before your tool is
plugged in and turned on.
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 tool is equipped
with an electric cord having an equipment grounding conductor and a grounding plug, as shown. The plug must be
plugged into a matching outlet that is properly installed
and grounded in accordance with all local codes and
ordinances.
Do not modify the plug provided. If it will not fit the outlet,
have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
A temporary adapter may be used to connect this plug to
a 2-prong outlet, as shown, if a properly grounded three
prong outlet is not available. This temporary adapter
should be used only until a properly grounded three
prong 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.
NOTE: In Canada the use of a temporary adapter is not
permitted by the Canadian electrical code.
Improper connection of the equipment grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. The conductor with insulation having an outer surface that is green
with or without yellow stripes is the equipment grounding
conductor. If repair or replacement of the electric cord or
plug is necessary, do not connect the equipment-grounding conductor to a live terminal.

Motor Safety Protection
IMPORTANT: To avoid motor damage, this motor should
be blown out or vacuumed frequently to keep sawdust
from interfering with normal motor ventilation.
1. Connect this tool to a power source with the appropriate voltage for your model and a 15-amp branch circuit
with a 15-amp time delay fuse or circuit breaker. Using
the wrong size fuse can damage the motor.
2. If the motor won’t start, turn the switch off immediately
and unplug the tool. Check the quill to make sure it
turns freely. If the quill is free, try to start the motor
again. If the motor still does not start, refer to the
"Motor Troubleshooting Chart."
3. Fuses may "blow" or circuit breakers may trip frequently if:
a. Motor Is Overloaded-Overloading can occur if you
feed too rapidly or make too many start/stops in a
short time.
b. Line voltages should not be more than 10% above
or below the nameplate voltage. For heavy loads,
however, the voltage at motor terminals must equal
the voltage specified for your model.
c. Improper or dull drill bit is used.
4. Most motor troubles may be traced to loose or incorrect connections, overload, low voltage (such as small
size wire in the supply circuit) or to overly long supply
circuit wire. Always check the connections, the load
and the supply circuit whenever motor doesn’t work
well. Check wire sizes and length with the Wire Size
Chart shown.
Wire Sizes
NOTE: Make sure the proper extension cord is used and
is in good condition.
The use of any extension cord will cause some loss of
power. To keep this to a minimum and to prevent overheating and motor burnout, use the table at right to determine the minimum wire size (A.W.G.) extension cord.
Use only 3-wire extension cords which have 3-prong
grounding type plugs and 3-pole receptacles which
accept the tools plug.

Safety Instructions for Basic Drill Press Operation
Read the following instructions for operating your drill
press to get the best results and to minimize the likelihood of personal injury.
WARNING For your own safety, always observe the
safety precautions here and on pages 2, 3 and 4.
Plan Ahead To Protect Your Eyes, Hands, Face and Ears
Dress for safety
• Do not wear loose clothing, gloves, neckties or jewelry
(rings, wrist watches). They can get caught and draw
you into moving parts.
• Wear nonslip footwear.
• Tie back long hair.
• Roll long sleeves above the elbow.
• Noise levels vary widely. To reduce the risk of possible
hearing damage, wear ear plugs or muffs when using
drill press for hours at a time.
Plan Your Work
• Don’t force the tool. It will do the job better and safer at
the rate for which it was designed.
• Use the right tool. Don’t force tool or attachment to do
a job it was not designed to do.
• If any part of your drill press is missing, malfunctioning,
has been damaged or broken...such as the motor
switch, or other operating control, a safety device or
the power cord, turn the drill press off and unplug it
until the particular part is properly repaired or
replaced.
• Never place your fingers in a position where they could
contact the drill or other cutting tool if the workpiece
should unexpectedly shift or your hand should slip.
• To reduce the risk of injury from parts thrown by the
spring, follow instructions exactly as given and shown
in adjusting spring tension of quill.
• To prevent the workpiece from being torn from your
hands, spinning of the tool, shattering the tool or being
thrown, always properly support your work so it won’t
shift or bind on the tool:
- Always position backup material (use beneath the
workpiece) to contact the left side of the column.
- Whenever possible, position the workpiece to contact the left side of the column - If it is too short or the
table is tilted, clamp solidly to the table. Use table
slots or clamping ledge around the outside edge of
•
•
•
•
•
the table.
- When using a drill press vise, always fasten it to a
table.
- Never do any work “Freehand” (hand holding workpiece rather than supporting it on the table), except
when polishing.
- Securely lock head to column, table support to column and table to table support before operating drill
press.
- Never move the head or table while the tool is running.
- Before starting the operation, jog the motor switch to
make sure the drill or other cutting tool does not
wobble or cause vibration.
- If a workpiece overhangs the table such that it will
fall or tip if not held, clamp it to the table or provide
auxiliary support.
- Use fixtures for unusual operations to adequately
hold, guide and position workpiece.
- Use the spindle speed recommended for the specific
operation and workpiece material - check the inside
of the belt guard for drilling information; for accessories, refer to the instructions provided with the accessories.
Never climb on the drill press table, it could break or
pull the entire drill press down on you.
Turn the motor switch off and put away the switch key
when leaving the drill press.
To reduce the risk of injury from thrown work or tool
contact, do not perform layout, assembly or setup work
on the table while the cutting tool is rotating.
Don’t overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at
all times.
Maintain tools with care. Keep tools sharp and clean
for best and safest performance. Follow instructions for
lubricating and changing accessories.
Use Only Accessories Designed For This Drill Press To Reduce the Risk of Serious Injury
From Thrown Broken Parts Or Work Pieces
• When cutting large diameter holes:
- Clamp the workpiece firmly to the table. Otherwise
the cutting may grab and spin it at high speed.
- Use only one piece, cup-type, hole cutters.
- Do not use fly cutters or multi-part hole cutters as
they can come apart or become unbalanced in use.
- Keep speed below 1500 R.P.M.
• Drum sanders must never be operated on this drill
press at a speed greater than 1800 R.P.M.
• Do not install or use any drill that exceeds 7” in length
or extends 6” below the chuck jaws. They can suddenly bend outward or break.
• Do not use wire wheels, router bits, shaper cutters, circle (fly) cutters or rotary planers on this drill press.

Basic Drill Press Operation
Installing Drills
Chuck Key
Insert drill into chuck far enough to obtain maximum gripping of the chuck jaws. The jaws are approximately 1"
long. When using a small drill do not insert it so far that
the jaws touch the flutes (spiral grooves) of the drill. Make
sure that the drill is centered in the chuck before tightening the chuck with the key.
Tighten the drill sufficiently, so that is does not slip while
drilling.
Turn the chuck key clockwise to tighten, counterclockwise
to loosen.
Chuck
Jaws
Positioning Table and Workpiece
Lock the table to the column in a position so that the tip of
the drill is just a little above the top of the workpiece.
Always place a piece of backup material (wood, plywood,
etc.) on the table underneath the workpiece. This will prevent “splintering” or making a heavy burr on the underside on the workpiece as the drill breaks through. To
keep the backup material from spinning out of control, it
must contact the left side of the column, as illustrated.
Workpiece
WARNING: To prevent the workpiece or the backup
material from being torn from your hand while drilling, position them against the left side of the column. If the workpiece or the backup material are
not long enough to reach the column, clamp them
to the table. Failure to do this could result in personal injury.
Backup
Material
For small pieces that cannot be clamped to the table, use
a drill press vise (optional accessory).
WARNING: The vise must be clamped or bolted to
the table to reduce the risk of injury from spinning
work and vise or tool breakage.

Basic Drill Press Operation (continued)
Tilting Table
To use the table in a bevel (tilted) position, loosen the set
screw under table bevel lock with hex “L” wrench. Loosen
bevel lock bolt with the 24mm flat wrench (included).
Tilt table to desired angle by reading bevel scale.
Retighten bevel lock and set screw.
Bevel Lock
WARNING: To reduce the risk of injury from spinning work or tool breakage, always clamp workpiece and backup material securely to table before
operating drill press with the table tilted.
Bevel Scale
To return table to original position: Loosen set screw and
bevel lock, tilt table back to 0° on bevel scale and
retighten set screw, then tighten bevel lock.
Set Screw
Feeding
Pull down on the feed handles with only enough effort to
allow the drill to cut.
Feeding too slowly might cause the drill to burn. Feeding
too rapidly might stop the motor, cause the belt or drill to
slip, tear the workpiece loose or break the drill bit.
When drilling metal, it may be necessary to lubricate the
tip of the drill with cutting oil or motor oil to prevent burning of the drill tip.
Hole Location
Make a dent in the workpiece where your want the hole,
using a center punch or a sharp nail.
Before turning the switch on, bring the drill down to the
workpiece lining it up with the hole location.
Adjustments
WARNING: For your own safety turn switch “OFF”
and remove plug from power source outlet before
making any adjustments. To reduce the risk of
injury from thrown parts due to spring release, follow instructions carefully and wear eye goggles.
Notch
Boss
Quill Return Spring
NOTE: The return spring tension is set at the factory and
should not require further adjustment.
1. With the chuck at its highest possible position, turn
the depth scale clockwise until it stops and tighten the
depth scale lock. This will prevent the quill dropping
while tensioning the spring.
2. Lower table for additional clearance.
3. Work from left side of drill press.
4. Place screwdriver in lower front notch of spring cap,
and hold it in place while loosening and removing
(outer) nut only.
5. With screwdriver remaining in notch, loosen (inner)
nut (approximately 1/8") until notch disengages from
boss on head. Do not remove this nut.
6. Carefully turn screwdriver counterclockwise and
engage next notch in boss. Do not remove screwdriver.
7. Tighten standard nut with wrench only enough to
engage boss. Do not overtighten as this will restrict
quill movement.
8. Move stop nuts and depth pointer to upper most position and check tension while turning feed handles.
Nut
(Outer)
Spring
Cap
Notch
Nut
(Inner)
9. If there is not enough tension on spring, repeat steps
4-8 moving only one notch each time and checking
tension after each repetition.
10. Proper tension is achieved when quill returns gently
to full up position when released from 3/4” depth.
11. When there is enough tension after checking, replace
outer nut and tighten to inner nut. But do not overtighten against inner nut.
12. Check quill while feeding to have smooth and unrestricted movement. If movement is too tight, loosen
outer nut and slightly loosen inner nut until unrestricted. Retighten outer nut.

Maintenance
Maintenance
Lubrication
All of the ball bearings are packed with grease at the factory. They require no further lubrication.
Periodically lubricate the table elevation mechanism, the
splines (grooves) in the spindle, and the rack (teeth of the
quill). See “Getting to Know Your Drill Press”.
WARNING: For your own safety, turn switch “OFF”
and remove plug from power source outlet before
maintaining or lubricating your drill press.
Frequently blow out any dust that may accumulate inside
the motor.
A coat of automotive type paste wax applied to the table
