• Read operating instructions manual for specific maintaining
and adjusting procedures.
• Keep tool lubricated.
• Use sharp cutters and keep the tool clean for safest operation.
• Remove adjusting tools. Form the habit of checking that adjusting tools are removed before turning on the machine.
• Keep all parts in working order. Check to determine that the
guard or other parts will operate properly and perform their
intended function.
• Check for damaged parts. Check for alignment of moving parts,
binding, breakage, mounting and any other condition that may
affect a tool’s operation.
• Damaged parts should be properly repaired or replaced. Do
not perform makeshift repairs. (Use the parts list provided to
order replacement parts.)
SAFETY RULES
PROPOSITION 65 WARNING: Some dust created by power
sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling and other construction activities
contains chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Some examples of these chemicals are:
• Lead from lead-based paints.
• Crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other
masonry products.
• Arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber.
Your risk from these exposures vary, depending on how often you
do this type of work. To reduce your exposure to these chemicals:
work in a well ventilated area and work with approved safety
equipment. Always wear OSHA/NIOSH approved, properly fitting
face mask or respirator when using such tools.
Before any work is done, carefully read the cautions listed. Working
safely prevents accidents.
KNOW HOW TO USE TOOL
• Use the right tool for the job. Do not force tool or attachment
to do a job for which it was not designed.
• Disconnect tool when changing accessories such as bits, cutters and the like.
• Avoid accidental start-up. Make sure switch is in OFF position
before plugging in.
• Do not force tool. It will work most efficiently at the rate for
which it was designed.
• Handle workpiece correctly. Secure work with clamps or vise.
Leave hands free to operate machine to protect hands from
possible injury.
• Never leave a tool running unattended. Turn the power off and
do not leave tool until it comes to a complete stop.
• Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance.
• Never stand on tool. Serious injury could occur if tool is tipped
or if cutter is unintentionally contacted.
• Keep hands away from moving parts and cutting surfaces.
• Know your tool. Learn its operation, application and specific
limitations.
• Feed work into a bit or cutter against the direction of rotation
of bit or cutter.
• Turn the machine off if it jams. A cutter jams when it digs too
deeply into the workpiece. (The motor force keeps it stuck in
workpiece.)
• Use recommended accessories. Refer to page 13. Use of
improper accessories may cause risk of injury to persons.
• Clamp workpiece or brace against column to prevent rotation.
• Use recommended speed for drill accessory and workpiece
material.
WARNING: Think Safety! Safety is a combination of operator
common sense and alertness at all times when drill press is being
used.
BE PREPARED FOR JOB
• Wear proper apparel. Do not wear loose clothing, gloves, neckties, rings, bracelets or other jewelry which may get caught in
moving parts of machine.
• Wear protective hair covering to contain long hair.
• Wear safety shoes with non-slip soles.
• Wear safety glasses which comply with United States ANSI
Z87.1. Everyday glasses have only impact resistant lenses. They
are NOT safety glasses.
• Wear face mask or dust mask if cutting operation is dusty.
• Be alert and think clearly. Never operate power tools when
tired, intoxicated or when taking medications that cause
drowsiness.
WORK AREA SHOULD BE READY FOR JOB
• Keep work area clean. Cluttered work areas and work benches
invite accidents.
• Do not use power tools in dangerous environments. Do not use
power tools in damp or wet locations. Do not expose power
tools to rain.

The ball bearings are lubricated at the factory and need no further
lubrication. Using 20wt. non detergent oil, periodically lubricate
the splines (grooves) in the spindle and the rack (teeth on the
quill) as follows:
• Lower spindle assembly (Figure 22, Ref. No. 3) all the way down.
• Apply lubricant around the inside of the hole in the spindle
pulley (Figure 22, Ref. No. 72).
• Apply lubricant to rack (teeth) on quill (Figure 22, Ref. No. 6)
while extended below drill press head.
• Apply lubricant to rack and pinion gear (Figures 23 and 24, Ref.
Nos. 11 and 22) on column and table assembly.
CLEAN MOTOR
Frequently blow out any dust that may accumulate inside motor. If
power cord is worn, cut or damaged in any way, have it replaced
immediately.
