    Drill press safety control

    I control my drill press with a foot control switch. It stays on as long as there is pressure maintained on it. I found it in a woodworker supply store. It was designed for table routers. This leaves both hands free to hold or lubricate, and if something goes wrong it will stop when you remove your foot.Drill press safety control-a41c840d-59a8-47cc-b8c6-b3824d9dbb21.jpg

    I also use a footswitch on my drill press, very happy with it and much safer.
