Description

Number of Pages: 48, printed 5.5″ x 8.5″
 

This is a reproduction, not a photocopy, of an original Delta Getting the Most Out of Your Drill Press book. This is a complete handbook covering all the branches of drill press operation in the home workshop with over two hundred photographic illustrations and line drawings. It gives a great overview of the many different operations you can do with a drill press, and probably some that you haven’t imagined. Have you ever thought about using your drill press for router work? Please see index below.

 

One reason that I’ve reprinted some of these older books is because they have a lot of information with illustrations that get directly to the point.

 

This book is part of a series that we have on our site:
GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR SHAPER
GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR DRILL PRESS
GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR LATHE
GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR CIRCULAR SAW AND JOINTER
GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR ABRASIVE TOOLS
GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR BAND SAW AND SCROLL SAW

Overview:

I have collected this information for many years and have found the information they contain to be priceless in using and setting up the machines properly. I believe this manual will be a valuable resource of knowledge that will provide a lot of helpful information that is often hard to find. My manuals are not photocopies. I maintain a high standard of quality in my reproductions. Most of the manuals I reproduce look better than their originals. I have professionally digitally edited every page, and removed stains, wrinkles and handwriting. All of the manuals are printed on thick white paper to withstand shop wear and tear.

We are a father and son team that operate a 5,000 sq/ft metal machine and wood shop. We've had to design our own machines (including CNC), and fixtures for our wood working. We make some of the smallest most precise inlay in the world. We maintain tolerances of 0.0005" in a 12" strip of wood, and we have duck calls with over 1,100 pieces of wood in them.
