The Craftsman 20" drill press is the primary drill press in the wood shop. Authorization is included in the general wood shop authorization. For upcoming authorizations, see the calendar.


The user manual is available here.


Per the user manual, the drill should be periodically cleaned of dust, the table wiped with wax to prevent rust, and (if needed) the quill lubricated with a dry lubricant like silicone or graphite. Users should perform this maintenance as the drill is used, and PS1 should inspect the drill monthly.

Maintenance history

  • July 10, 2017. Drill press motor is not fully connected. Belt may be rubbing on the housing.
  • July 14, 2017. One of the two posts that adjusts the motor position is missing its nut. Also, there is a rack-and-pinion lever that moves the motor in and out, and one of the posts had skipped a tooth. I worked it back into position, and I believe it is now safe to use, despite the missing nut. Replacing the nut will require removing the motor, which is a two-person job.
  • July 18, 2017. This is fixed now. For the record, the missing nut was M12-1.75. I put some "purple" locktite on both nuts, so hopefully we won't have to take it apart again.
