    I'd like to change the chuck on my drill to keyed for easier use in a drill stand - its currently very difficult to change bits with the drill in place. Its a keyless chuck and its hard to grip the opposing rings. the drill is a Makita M8101K and fits the stand fine (A wolfcraft). Most online...

    Hello, Last evening, my Craftsman C3 drill caught on fire. Several sparks and a lot of smoke pouring out of the rear vents near the level. Only had the drill for 2 years, only ever saw light weekend use. The smoke was awful, full of phenolics and other plastic vapors, - nasty. My 19.2V battery...

    I have a B&D Quantum 12V. 20 years plus. Rebuilt the battery packs twice. My only complaints are, it's 3/8" and it doesn't do high RPM, needed for small diameter bits. My Craftsman corded drill, 30 years plus, is starting to smell of burned insulation when I use it, and the bushings scream. No...

    Hey guys: I am looking for a way to drill perpendicular hole on a flat surface of wood for connecting dowel installation. The tricky part for me is that the standard way of using a drill press won't apply well here due to the non-flat and non-parallel surface on the other side of the...

    I'm researching Drill Presses and key points of a product that are important to Drill Press users and gathering my information to create a simple standard survey (on a scale 1 to 10 how important is...). I think the best way to create an accurate and useful survey is to talk to those that are...

    SO, I'm new to tools and whatnot but I swear I can't be this dumb. I bought a 10 inch craftsman drill press that was on clearance for $30 bucks from $150. I began constructing it a few hours ago and was pretty much done 20 minutes in but the chuck will not go on the spindle no matter what I...

    Many handheld electric drills have a built-in level to aid the user in making horizontal holes. However, wouldn’t it be especially useful to have a drill with a switch that automatically requires it be perfectly aligned for horizontal or vertical drilling for it to operate? Switch off: normal...

  11. Woodturning
    My father-in-law offered me a lathe that he was given and has no intention of using. It started me thinking and I would like to get into woodturning for small projects, mainly pens and game calls. My question is should I take up that much real estate in my shop for something I will only use...

    Hey guys, I am considering building a drill press for a number of smaller projects that require perpendicular holes. I am not sure how I am going to build it yet, just looking around for some ideas. Anybody here built one before? Or have any suggestions/plans on how to build one? I don't need...

    I'm doing a research project for a class at North Carolina State University on electric (cordless or corded) hand drills / impact drivers. Right now my group (me + 3 other students) is trying to identify any issues with drilling / driving. If anyone has 2 or 3 minutes to fill out a 10 question...

    So I recently got a DP300L Delta Tabletop Drill Press. I just put it together and I'm running into some interesting problems right now. Because of how the track for raising and lower the table is attached, the table wiggles back and forth as I raise it. Also the drill press has a dissapointing 2...
