CONNECTING DRILL PRESS TO POWER SOURCE
A separate electrical circuit should be used for your power tools. This circuit should not be less than #12
wire and should be protected with 20 Amp time lag fuse. If an extension cord is used, use only 3-wire
extension cords which have 3-prong grounding type plugs and 3-pole receptacles which accept the tools
plug. For distances up to 100 feet use #12 wire. For distance up to 160 feet use #10 wire. Before
connecting the motor to the power line, make sure the switch is in the "OFF" position and be sure that the
electric current is of the same characteristics as stamped on motor nameplate. All line connections
should make good contact. Running on low voltage will injure the motor. Have a registered electrician
replace or repair damaged or worn cords immediately.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS - 115 VOLT
This tool must be grounded while in use to protect the
operator from electric shock. If the motor supplied with
your drill press is wired for 115 Volt, Single Phase it is
equipped with an approved 3-conductor cord and 3-
prong grounding type plug to fit the proper grounding
type receptacle, as shown in Fig. 2. The green
conductor in the cord is the grounding wire. Never
connect the green wire to a live terminal.
An adapter, shown in Fig. 3, is available for connecting
3-prong grounding type plugs to 2-prong receptacles.
THIS ADAPTER IS NOT APPLICABLE IN CANADA.
The green-colored rigid ear, lug, etc., extending from the
adapter is the grounding means and must be connected
to a permanent ground such as to properly grounded
outlet box, as shown in Fig. 3.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS - 230 VOLT
If the motor on your machine is wired for 230V single
phase, the power cord must be equipped with a plug that
has two flat, current-carrying prongs in tandem, and one
round or "U"-shaped longer ground prong. This is used
only with the proper mating 3-conductor grounding type
receptacle, as shown in Fig. 4. When the three-prong
plug on your machine is plugged into a grounded 3-
conductor receptacle, the long ground prong on the plug
contacts first so the machine is properly grounded before
electricity reaches it.
THREE PHASE INSTALLATION
If the motor on your machine is wired for 200V, 230V, or
480V three phase, the necessary wiring from the starter
to the power source should be completed by a
IMPORTANT: IN ALL CASES, MAKE SURE THE
GROUNDED. IF YOU ARE NOT SURE HAVE A
