Hi, my name is Chris Palmer. In this segment, we're going to talk about how to use a drill press. The great thing about a drill press is the work table is at 90 degrees to the drill bit all the time, so you're guaranteed to get a nice, straight hole. The work table is height adjustable. You want to set it so the bit is almost touching your work before you turn the machine on. You can put any size bit in here that you like, any old drill bit will work in a drill press. If you need to clamp your work to keep it straight, go ahead and do that. Once your work is secure, you just turn the machine on and pull down the lever, and that will bring the drill bit down and make your hole for you. Thanks for watching. I'm Chris Palmer. That's how you use a drill press.
