UNPACKING
Your CT020N and CT021N have been carefully packed to prevent damage in
shipping. Care should be taken when
opening the cartons to make certain that all
parts and components have been
accounted for.
Do Not throw away any packaging until
your drill press is assembled and properly
running.
Some of your Craftex drill press
components have been coated with a
protective lubricant to prevent rust. Prior to
assembly, these parts should be cleaned
with a soft cloth dampened with mineral
spirits. When cleaned, the components
should be coated with paste wax and then
buffed dry.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides the path of
least resistance for electrical current and reduces the risk of electrical
shock. This tool is equipped with an electrical cord that has an equipment
grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug MUST be plugged
into a matching outlet that has been properly installed and grounded in
accordance with ALL local codes and ordinances.
DO NOT MODIFY THE PLUG PROVIDED. If the provided plug will not fit the
electrical outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified licensed
electrician.
IMPROPER CONNECTION of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in
risk of electrical shock. The conductor wire with the green insulation (with or
without yellow stripes) is the equipment-grounding conductor. If repair or
replacement of the electrical cord or plug is required, DO NOT connect the
equipment-grounding conductor to a live terminal.
If in doubt about these instructions consult a qualified,
licensed electrician.
USE ONLY A THREE-WIRE EXTENSION CORD with
a 3-prong grounding plug and three-hole receptacles
that accept the tool’s plugs as shown.
It is recommended that stationary tools be assigned to a dedicated 15 amp circuit
using #12 wire.

lever.
Select the lever from the parts and screw it onto the drill head.
Setting the Belt
Open the pulley cover.
Loosen the setscrew on the
motor.
Place the V-belt on the pulleys
(see
belt
speeds
under
Operations) to your speed
choice.
Tighten the motor tension.
Tighten the motor setscrew.
NOTE: YOUR RADIAL DRILL PRESS
SHOULD NOT BE USED UNTIL IT IS

CT020N & CT021N RADIAL DRILL PRESSES
OPERATION
Operations and Adjustments
The Craftex CT020N & CT021N are precision machines that, if properly operated
and adjusted, will provide excellent service for many years.
Motor Switch
Your radial drill press is equipped with a safety switch. The switch lock may be
removed to prevent unauthorised operation. In addition, the switch key should be
removed when making any adjustments to the machine.
Table Adjustments
To rotate the radial drill press table, loosen the post
clamping lock at the rear of the table bracket.
To adjust the height of the radial drill press table,
loosen the post clamping lock at the rear of the table
bracket.
Rotate the table elevator handle to raise or lower
the table to the desired height.
Tighten the post clamping lock.
13
CT020N & CT021N RADIAL DRILL PRESSES
OPERATION, Continued
Note: As with any new piece of equipment, the owner/operator should use scrap
material in order to become accustomed it.
Drilling Depth Stop
The CT020N and CT021N have been fitted with a new style depth stop. To set
the depth stop, loosen the depth locking nuts and rotate them to the desired
depth as indicated on the scale. Tighten the bolts.
Drill Speeds
The CT020N and
CT021N are 5speed drill presses
with the speed
ratings as shown.
Drilling Speeds
The following is intended to be a general rule-of-thumb, not specific information.
Important drilling speed factors are, the type of material, hole size, the type of
drill bit/cutter and the desired cut quality. The smaller the drill bit, the higher the
speed required and soft materials generally require a higher speed while hard
materials a slower speed.
14
CT020N & CT021N RADIAL DRILL PRESSES
OPERATION, Continued
METAL WORKING
A metal workpiece (like all work) should be firmly clamped to the drill press table
and the table securely locked. NEVER hold the workpiece with your bare hands.
The drill bit may grab and cause serious personal injury.
Flat metal pieces should be backed with scrap wood and clamped.
Irregular-shaped pieces should be blocked and clamped.
WOODWORKING
Metal-piercing twist drills may be used on wood but the preferred choice is bradpoint bits or Forstner-type bits.
Do not use auger bits as they will tend to lift off the table.
To prevent tear-out when drilling through a workpiece, back it with a piece of
scrap wood.
FEEDING
Be aware of the sound of the drill press motor when drilling.
Do not rotate the feed handles too quickly as the belts may slip or the motor may
stall.
Feeding too slowly may cause the drill bit to
heat up and possibly burn the workpiece.
Pulley Adjustments
Open the pulley housing cover.
Loosen the motor setscrew.
Refer to the speed levels and move the Vbelt accordingly.
Push the motor to the rear to put tension on
the V-belt.
Tighten the setscrew.
Correct Belt Tension
The correct belt tension is achieved when
the belt, using finger pressure, can be
flexed 1 cm from the center of the belt.
Relieve the belt pressure if the drill press
will be out of use for a long time.
15
CT020N & CT021N RADIAL DRILL PRESSES
OPERATION, Continued
Head Tilting
The Drill head on the CT020N and CT021N may be rotated 45 degrees
clockwise and 90 degrees counter clockwise.
To adjust the rotation, loosen the clamping lever as shown and then pull out the
guide pin. The guide pin is a positive stop at 90 degrees. Align the reference line
with the appropriate
degree
on
the
scale. Tighten the
clamping lever.
Horizontal Head Rotation
To swing the drill press head left or right, loosen the post cap clamping lever.
When the desired rotation is achieved, tighten the clamping lever.
Extending The Drill Head
To move the drill head front to
rear, loosen the clamping lever
on the head.
Rotate the control knob to move
the head to the desired position.
Tighten the clamping lever.
16
CT020N & CT021N RADIAL DRILL PRESSES
OPERATION, Continued
Spindle Adjustments
The table and spindle have been factory set and should not require any further
adjusting. In the rare event that this is required, proceed with the following
procedure.
Clamp an 80mm steel rod into the
chuck.
Check the vertical alignment with a
straight edge.
Loosen the setscrews on the two sides
of the drill head with a hex key.
Adjust the alignment.
Securely tighten the setscrews.
17
MAINTENANCE
CT020N & CT021N RADIAL DRILL PRESSES
Disconnect the power to the machine before making any adjustments, repairs or
maintenance.
Although machines such as this drill press are designed to work in wood shops
and metal shops, sawdust and metal shavings are not friendly to electrical
motors.
The owner should routinely (once a month) blow out or vacuum metal shavings
and sawdust from in and around the motor, the pulley housing, the drill press
table and other surfaces.
The drill press table should be cleaned after each use.
The application of a light coat of paste wax on drill press column and the table
will help keep these surfaces clean and rust-free.
The bearings in the quill and V-belt assembly are permanently greased and
sealed.
A light application of oil to the quill every three months is recommended.
Lubricate other moving parts such as the table swivel, tilt, rack and pinion etc. on
a regular basis.
