Main project - my drill press wen t crazy on me.

Tried to make a circle cut and darn thing started to move down and got jammed into wood.

Any suggestion how to make it lose? Other then a bomb?.... LOL

While I am not familiar with your drill press, I do have some questions that may help you?  Does the table adjust height?  If you can lower the table, that may work.  If the table won't work, a bottle jack with a piece of wood can raise the head or spindle.  It may also be possible to remove the drill bit if the chuck spindle will retrieve.  It sounds as if a belt may have slipped off a pulley.  I would check that if it were mine.  Otherwise, I am out of ideas.  Hope you success.  

 

Edit: Just had another thought about a spring on the feed handle.  Is it working?  Is it in place and not broken?  You got me going now!!!

From the beginning, through thick and thin. I've landed on the wrong side of Steve a few times, seemed to always work it out though. Morris' site is completely happy you are here. :)

You mean Steve the Trim carpenter from south Missouri?
