Safety

We advise users of the drill press to:

  • Check the machine is in safe working order before using it
  • Tie back long hair, remove loose jewelry, and secure loose clothing before using this equipment
  • Safely and securely clamp work before drilling it
  • Do not leave the key in the chuck
  • use the guard attached to the drill
  • Not use gloves when using the drill (there have been incidents where this has caused injuries by pulling hands into the drill)
  • Be aware of swarf, and raise the drill bit occasionally to allow the swarf to break away
  • clean up and inspect the machine after use
