Default Drill press issue

I attempted to drill a 1-1/8 hole in a 1/2 steel plate with my drill press (Princess auto) and if you watch the YouTube video I would like your opinions of what the problem is!

Ps; save your opinions if they are negative- the drill press was bought years ago and that is all I could afford at the time

Thanks

Eric

Why would you step into this place and immediately insinuate the opinions and attitudes would be negative??

You will probably find better and more friendly attitudes and help here than anywhere else you have been if you can keep your attitude positive.

Looks to me like the pulley is turning on the shaft.

Because I have received many negative opinions/feedback on many forums including this one when some pros see that you do not buy US made tool or chicom tools!

Frankly you just replying the way you did was just what I did not want; defensive tone without knowing how annoying it is to have people chiming in or trolling just to irritate.

I apologize if I have offended you but I only want an answer to my question without being harassed.

I had it happen where there was a splined collar pressed into the pulley that was slipping. Take it off and see what you can see.

The pulley is keyed to the shaft and you sheared the key.

Step one disassemble spindle
Remove old key 2 or more pieces.
Purchase new key of same size.
Clean lube and re assemble.

#2 wheel bearing grease will do fine for lubrication.

You were spinning a large diameter tool for the size machine you have.
Machine broke, been there done that. If you are going cut heavy like
that it would be recommended to upgrade your machine or you will be
doing a lot of repairs.

Ok gotta find a socket to fit the nut. Biggest I have is 15/16" and too small.

Will make a trip tomorrow to get the proper socket.

If that is the case what is the fix?

get called a dumbass. That was my intention.

I think we all over run our tools at times, I suspect most if not all of
us are NOT going to run out and purchase a $2000 dollar drill press for
one 1.125" hole. But you are gonna run the risk of fucking up a machine
you did. Even if you cannot fix you current machine, you can replace
it for $200, That makes for an expensive hole but still cheaper than $2000.

But I gotta admit by putting in that "negative comment" comment in the
starting post you are just asking for abuse...

You'll know the answer once you pull the pulley off the shaft. The pulley could be splined, straight keyed or woodruff keyed.
