Make sure you have the following safety tips at hand, so that you follow every detail on how to use the machine. When you follow these safety guidelines, you can be assured there won't be an accident. Accidents are not meant to happen. We are going to look at all the safety tips now.

Let's look at the pre operational checks first

Make sure your workspace does not have any slippery hazards on the floor. If there is any slip contact, you might slip and fall on any of these machines, and that can be disastrous

Make sure you ensure the chuck guard is always in position.

Make sure the key to the chuck is removed when not in used. Do not make that mistake; make sure the key is removed.

Be familiar with the on/off switch of the e-shop, get used to it, and ensure that you know how to turn it off and on when need be.

Make sure you correct every clamp and ensure that the rules are adhere correctly in the shop.

Make sure you create a safe path away from the work area.

Ensure the drill speed of the cutter is well spindled to suit it well.

Faulty-equipment must-not be used. Immediately-report suspect equipment. Make sure that at the slightest error of fault on any machine, you try to fix it.

Do not leave the-drill press on while it is still being used , never do that.

Anything you going to clean the place or the machines, make sure you switch off the machines before you start cleaning. Never assume the machines are off before you start cleaning. If you are not sure, please check well.

Always make sure you feed the drill cutting machine at the downwards rate, to ensure you are safe and avoid any accident.

Make sure the drill works through the underside, to ensure that the drill is working accurately and well.
