Question

Explain oscillating

When you say that this drill press oscillates for sanding, which way does it oscillate? The definition of oscillating is: "to swing or move to and fro, as a pendulum does. ". So does the sanding drum oscillate up and down or side to side?

Question

Oscillating

So this is a drill press for making holes in wood, and also sands? How does the sanding work? Does the chuck area oscillate to sand and is there a sanding drum or similar that goes in the chuck?

How do you switch from drill press to sanding?
