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!!!

Quite a change for someone known as Whitedog.....I am that fellow....very happy on Morris' site, 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. :)

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
