This is a Safety quiz for the Drill Press.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    While working on the Drill Press, what is the function of the depth stop?

    • A.

      To show the depth of hole that is being drilled.

    • B.

      To regulate the depth of the hole that is being drilled.

    • C.

      To stop the machine.

    • D.

      To control the speed at which the drill bit cuts through the hole.

    Correct Answer
    B. To regulate the depth of the hole that is being drilled.
    Explanation
    The function of the depth stop on a Drill Press is to regulate the depth of the hole that is being drilled. It allows the user to set a specific depth and ensures that the drill bit does not go beyond that point. This is important for precision drilling and ensures consistent hole depths in various materials.

    What is the purpose of clamping the work piece securely to the table when drilling holes?

    • A.

      To keep the table from moving.

    • B.

      To keep the work piece from moving when the drill begins to cut.

    • C.

      To help support the table while drilling.

    • D.

      To keep the drill bit from moving while the drill press is working.

    Correct Answer
    B. To keep the work piece from moving when the drill begins to cut.
    Explanation
    Clamping the work piece securely to the table when drilling holes is important to prevent the work piece from moving when the drill begins to cut. This ensures that the holes are drilled accurately and precisely. If the work piece is not securely clamped, it may shift or rotate during the drilling process, leading to misaligned or uneven holes. Clamping also enhances safety by reducing the risk of the work piece being caught by the drill bit and causing accidents.

    How do you change the speed of a drill press?

    • A.

      Change the v-belt on the pulley system.

    • B.

      Change the position of the v-belt on the pulley

    • C.

      Release the tension on the v-belt.

    • D.

      Increase the tension on the v-belt.

    Correct Answer
    B. Change the position of the v-belt on the pulley
    Explanation
    To change the speed of a drill press, you need to change the position of the v-belt on the pulley. By adjusting the position of the belt on different sized pulleys, you can alter the speed at which the drill press operates. This allows you to customize the speed to match the specific requirements of the task at hand.

    Why should you put a piece of scrap wood under the work piece when drilling a hole through the wood?

    • A.

      To protect the drill press table.

    • B.

      To get the work piece closer to the drill bit.

    • C.

      To keep the table area clean.

    • D.

      To ensure that the drill bit goes through the board.

    Correct Answer
    A. To protect the drill press table.
    Explanation
    When drilling a hole through wood, it is recommended to put a piece of scrap wood under the work piece to protect the drill press table. This is because the drilling process can cause the drill bit to go through the work piece and into the table, potentially damaging it. By placing a scrap wood underneath, any accidental drilling through the work piece will instead go into the scrap wood, preventing any harm to the drill press table.

  • 5. 

    Before starting the drill press, always make sure that:

    • A.

      Hair and loose clothing are kept away from the moving parts.

    • B.

      Safety glasses are on.

    • C.

      All types of jewelry are removed.

    • D.

      All of the above.

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above" because all three statements are important safety precautions that should be followed before starting the drill press. Keeping hair and loose clothing away from moving parts prevents them from getting caught and causing accidents. Wearing safety glasses protects the eyes from flying debris or sparks. Removing all types of jewelry reduces the risk of them getting caught in the machine and causing injuries. Therefore, all three statements are necessary for ensuring safety while operating the drill press.
