Variable speed is great

Bought my drill press at Bunnings yesterday with $80 off the $549 usual price. It took a couple of hours to set up because it must be fastened to a bench. The drill head is very heavy and took a bit of doing for an old bloke like me but I managed. Connected it to the power, the light came on but the drill wouldn't work. Very disappointing. Phoned the distributor (it is made by Ozito). Pulled it all down this morning and returned for a replacement. No problems there. Set it all up again. That variable speed is like dream come true but the table was about 5º off square and wouldn't move. I ended up taking out the table, putting in a piece of pipe and wacking that with a lump of wood. It took a bit to move it but now it's good. Show details

My drill has been working fine. Yesterday it grabbed the piece of metal and stopped. I have been unable to get it to start. I read about an interlock if the guard is knocked. Don’t have a manual. Any advice.?

Purchased one of these Full Boar units a few days ago, and also a 54mm Irwin forstner bit to use in it for some light timber cutting. The bit will enter timber about 1/8" then binds in DAR pine and the keyless chuck just keeps on spinning around the bit shank (at revs from around 500 to 1500 so far tested). The chuck jaws are leaving scratch marks on the shank. At 71yo it's a bit much for me to disassemble and take back to Bunnings, so is there an easy answer to the chuck slipping? Would a keyed chuck be more suitable?

Is the bit shank round? Is so the chuck can't get purchase on the shank. A hexagonal shaped shank would provide better grip to the chuck. If it is already a hex shank, then I give up... :-) Sorry.

It's round unfortunately. Full Boar solution is return the entire unit for replacement. They won't replace the chuck only. Grrrr

If you are gripping the chuck knurling at the top with one hand and tightening the jaw knurling with the other, that's about as tight as you are going to get it otherwise get a keyed chuck or a hexagon sectioned drill shank.
