POWER CONNECTIONS

A separate electrical circuit should be used for your machines. This circuit should not be less than #12 wire and should be protected with a 20 Amp time lag fuse. If an extension cord is used, use only 3-wireextension cords which have3-pronggrounding type plugs and matching receptacle which will accept the machine’s plug. Before connecting the machine to the power line, make sure the switch (s) is in the “OFF” position and be sure that the electric current is of the same characteristics as indicated on the machine. All line connections should make good contact. Running on low voltage will damage the machine.

Electrocution hazard. Do not expose the machine to rain or operate the machine in damp locations.

MOTOR SPECIFICATIONS

Your machine is wired for 120 Volts 60 HZ alternating current. Before connecting the machine to the power source, make sure the switch is in the “OFF” position.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

Electrocution hazard. This machine must be grounded while in use to protect the operator from electric shock.

1.All grounded, cord-connectedmachines:

In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This machine is equipped with an electric cord having an equipment-groundingconductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into a matching outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

Do not modify the plug provided - if it will not fit the outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

Improper connection of the equipment-groundingconductor can result in risk of electric shock. The conductor with insulation having an outer surface that is green with or without yellow stripes is theequipment-groundingconductor. If repair or replacement of the electric cord or plug is necessary, do not connect theequipment-groundingconductorto a live terminal.

Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if in doubt as to whether the machine is properly grounded.

Use only 3-wireextension cords that have3-pronggrounding type plugs and matching3-conductorreceptacles that accept the machine’s plug, as shown in Fig. A.

Repair or replace damaged or worn cord immediately.

2.Grounded, cord-connectedmachines intended for use on a supply circuit having a nominal rating less than 150 volts:

If the machine is intended for use on a circuit that has an outlet that looks like the one illustrated in Fig. A, the machine will have a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated in Fig. A. A temporary adapter, which looks like the adapter illustrated in Fig. B, may be used to connect this plug to a matching2-conductorreceptacle as shown in Fig. B if a properly grounded outlet is not available. The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet can be installed by a qualified electrician. Thegreen-coloredrigid ear, lug, and the like, extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box. Whenever the adapter is used, it must be held in place with a metal screw.

NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is not permitted by the Canadian Electric Code.

Electrocution hazard. In all cases, make certain that the receptacle in question is properly grounded. If you are not sure, have a qualified electrician check the receptacle.

MACHINE USE

NOTE: Use bits with this drill press that have a shank of 5/8" or less in diameter.

NOTE: Use scrap material for practice to get a feel of the machine before attempting regular work.

RISK OF UNSAFE OPERATION. The use of accessories and attachments not recommended by Delta may result in risk of injury.

IMPORTANT: If the workpiece is long enough, position it with one end against the left side of the column (Fig. 32). This action prevents the workpiece from rotating with the drill bit or cutting tool, causing damage to the workpiece or injury to you. If it is not possible to support the workpiece against the column, fasten it to the table using clamps or a vise.

INSTALLING AND REMOVING DRILL BITS

Disconnect the machine from the power source!

1.Insert smooth end of drill bit (A) Fig. 33, into chuck (B), as far as it will go, and then back the bit out 1/16", or up to the flutes for small bits.

2.Make certain that the drill bit (A) Fig. 33, is centered in the chuck (B) before tightening the chuck with the key (C).

3.Turn the chuck key (C) Fig. 33, clockwise to tighten and counter-clockwiseto loosen the chuck jaws.

4.Tighten all three chuck jaws to secure the drill bit sufficiently so that it does not slip while drilling.

5.RISK OF FLYING OBJECTS. Don't tether the chuck key to the tool. The cord could get tangled and chuck key could be thrown at user or tool could be damaged. Also, make surethat the chuck key (C) Fig. 33, is removed from chuck before starting drill press. Your chuck key (C) is equipped with a self-ejecting pin

(D) which helps minimize the hazard of the key being left in the chuck.

CORRECT DRILLING SPEEDS

Factors that determine the best drilling speed 1) the workpiece, 2) the size of the hole to be drilled, 3) the type of drill or other cutter, and 4) the quality of cut.

RISK OF UNSAFE OPERATION. Use the recommended speed for the drill press bit and workpiece material.

DRILLING WOOD

Twist drills, although intended for metal drilling, may be used for boring holes in wood. However, machine spur bits are generally preferred for working in wood. These bits cut cut a flat-bottomhole and are designed for removal of wood chips. Do not use hand bits that have a screw tip. At drill press speeds, they turn too rapidly and will lift the work and spin it.

For through boring, align the table so that the bit will enter the center hole to avoid damage to the table. Scribe a vertical line on the front of the column and a matching mark on the table bracket and the drill press head, so that the table and drill press head can be clamped in the center position at any height.

When the bit is about to cut through the workpiece, feed it slowly to prevent spintering the bottom face. To help protect the bit and reduce splintering, a wooden insert is included in the table. Alternately, you can use a scrap piece of wood as a base block under the work.

DRILLING METAL

Use clamps to hold the workpiece. DO NOT try to hold the workpiece with your hand. The drill bit may seize the work at any time and spin, causing damage to the machine and/or injury to you. The drill bit will break if the workpiece strikes the column.

Clamp the workpiece firmly. Tilting, twisting, or shifting will result in a rough hole and drill bit breakage. For flat work, lay the workpiece on a wooden base and clamp it firmly against the table. If the workpiece is of irregular shape and cannot lie flat on the table, make sure that you clamp it securely.

REMOVING SPINDLE ADAPTER

The spindle adapter and chuck can be removed for the purpose of using shanks with a #2 morse taper.

Disconnect the machine from the power source!

1.Align the slot in the quill (A) Fig. 34 with the slot in the spindle (B).

2.Insert the drift key (C) Fig. 35 through the slot in the quill and the slot in the spindle.

3.Tap the drift key (C) Fig. 35 with a hammer until the the spindle adapter and chuck fall from the quill.

MAINTENANCE

KEEP MACHINE CLEAN

Periodically blow out all air passages with dry compressed air. All plastic parts should be cleaned with a soft damp cloth. NEVER use solvents to clean plastic parts. They could possibly dissolve or otherwise damage the material.

Wear certified safety equipment for eye, hearing and respiratory protection while using compressed air.

FAILURE TO START

Should your machine fail to start, check to make sure the prongs on the cord plug are making good contact in the outlet. Also, check for blown fuses or open circuit breakers in the line.

LUBRICATION & RUST PROTECTION

Apply household floor paste wax to the machine table, extension table or other work surface weekly. Or use a commercially available protective product designed for this purpose. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use and safety.

To clean cast iron tables of rust, you will need the following materials: a sheet of medium Scotch-Brite™Blending Hand Pad, a can ofWD-40® and a can of degreaser. Apply theWD-40and polish the table surface with theScotch-Britepad. Degrease the table, then apply the protective product as described above.
