Misuse of machines .....
About the last thing I would do is use a cutter like that with a morse taper chuck. It can come loose when sideways pressure is exerted against.
A drill press is designed for vertical loads, when drilling holes, not for sanding drums, router bits, molding heads. etc. A shaper "can" be used as a router, BUT the 1/4" dia bits need about 20,000 RPMs, which no shaper is designed to run at. A table saw can be used with a molding head, IF precautions are taken to hold down the work and a zero clearance throat plate is used. A RAS can be used for many different operations, including ripping IF precautions are used to feed in the proper direction, and the nose of the blade guard is rotated to prevent the workpiece from lifting up, it's natual tendency. There is a special guard for use with a molding head on a RAS.
People will get creative when there is no proper machine at for the task at hand. Common sense, the laws of physics and gravity, AND Murphy's Law all come into play when using a machine in a manner for which it is not designed or intended.... just sayin'
The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
