Details of ISSUE or REQUEST (Please be as specific as possible):
[The drill press isn’t drilling so good no more. I was using a forstner bit today, and it started slipping. As in, the bit stopped but the motor was still running. At first I thought the belts on top were loose, but I looked, and they were still turning when the bit stopped. Maybe the chuck is slipping internally? Maybe the chuck isn’t tight enough? The chuck key on the side of the tool doesn’t fit all that well. Note - this tool was behaving the same way yesterday for me. Also, Katherine said she was having trouble with it earlier as well.]
