No those are pieces of crap from china... I read the reviews and they are so crappy... The good ones are like 150 bucks. What other attachments should I get for my drill press?

nice use of the word crap lol. I have the exact same model as pictured, and I got it for appx $50. Great little tool. I've done plastic and wood "ghetto drill press milling" with it and it is fine, but the chuck itself is my problem.... nothing like a bridgeport though :cry: lol one day... one day...

The great part of it is just using it for what it's intended... simple moving an object with relatively good precision on a cheap drill press table. It works great for that!

I have that cross slide vise from Harbor Freight as well. It's built surprisingly well with adjustable gibs. Works good.

I know I don't have to say this since you all probably know this, but the bearings in a drill press are not made side load and using it as a mill will destroy them. Also side load may loosen the chuck and cause it come out flying...
wat I am getting at, power tools has the potensial to be very dangerous if used in any way other than it is designed to be used so be carefull and do take propper precautions...

I'll be lighting salutes all day long, then I take the bike to my girlfriend 30 kms from me (not nice when drunk :roll:)
When I arrive there I have better things to do than getting drunk :D

I can drink all year long, legally lighting fireworks is more fun.
I also like the fact that the police will be paying less attention to my homebrewn stuff :)

tye a string to your chuck key to your press


Don't try this at home folks !!

Tying the chuck key to a string is worse than leaving it in the chuck alone. I have seen too many near misses where someone didn't remove the chuck key before starting the drill, nice demonstration of centripetal acceleration.

Tying the key on creates a potentially lethal noose for your wrist and at 500RPM that string will tighten awfully fast.

Standard practice in any workshop at plants I work in is that no chuck key, collett spanner or any other tool will have a lanyard attached. You don't allow long hair, loose clothes etc near a spinning tool, why would you deliberately create a dangerous situation? I did once see a toolmaker who had put the chuck key on a lanyard round his neck so he would not loose it.........

Create a mantra that you follow EVERY time: chuck tight, yep, chuck key in the red painted holder next to the drill, yep, press the button,yep.

BTW, ditto @heimo on the mill vs drill chuck. Using your drill press as a slot drill / mill will wear bearings, overload and damage the motor and may give you that flying object effect when (not if) the chuck comes loose under the side load.

lol I was chuckling at how bad of an idea that is...

It's quite the opposite jsefcik, usually you want a spring on the mating end of a chuck key or lathe chuck key so that if it is left unattended - it will push itself out. Starting a drill press or lathe with the chuck key in place leads to interesting results!

As Heimo said - the drill chuck can loosen under extended side loading. I've had this happen a few times. The tapered end shaft keeps it from being able to fly out completely, but it does fall onto the piece and spin like a dreidel for a little while...

Best thing I've found for keeping your chuck key handy is to epoxy a small neodymium magnet to the side of it, then whack it to the side of your drill-head. (The body, NOT the chuck) Cups can get knocked over, and your chuck will inevitably go skittering under something. Magnetism is your friend!

another idiot, i didnt say leave the chuck in, i mean like tie a piece of string, from the chuck to the drill , so you dont loose it, i never said leave it in, there is nothing bad or dangerous about using a piece of string


just like on my corded drill i taped the chuck to the end of the cord, so i dont loose it,


or just put a screw into your bench, tye string from screw to the chuck key, again so you dont loose it
