In this video, I go over a few tips for getting the most of your Shopsmith Mark V drill press. There are so many little tips that we’ll eventually cover, but these are a few I use every time I drill:

2.) Grip the way tube FIRMLY beneath the headstock and above when lifting.
3.) You can reposition the headstock and carriage in the vertical position, but why risk it?
4.) Position the quill feed handle wherever it best fits your needs.
5.) The feed stop (Quill depth stop) can be used in several ways.
