Default Downloadable Drill Press Speed Chart

So does anyone know of a downloadable speed chart for a drill press? I need a reference for different bit types as well as materials if possible. I saw some when Googled but most have been removed due to copyright issue.

Thanks

Steve;
I have one in hard copy. I'll see if I can find it, scan it and either e-mail it or try and post it But I'm guessing Stick will have posted a.pdf on the topic by then.

In the past I've used used motor oil or oil I can't identify for drilling steel but the last time I drilled some I decided I'd try some thread tapping compound that looks like thick brown grease. It worked way better than oil did. Kept the bit cooler and lubricated better.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I work for Cromac chemicals from Brampton ON. and we sell the best tapping fluid on the market. People that have used it for years and tried others always come back saying it's the best. It is sold by distributors across Canada and is called Cromatap #1. I've tried it and it works great !
BTW, I am not trying to sell some, my territory is only Quebec and eastern Ontario, not BC. and we only sell by the case.

Don't fear your tools, pay attention and respect the tools and avoid injury.

I am having trouble copying the link but there is a chart from Wood Magazine called Drill press speed chart. It is all over the web and one that came up "Meridith Corp pdf" is printable. It lists materials across the top and the correct speed for all sizes and types (twist, spade, Forstner, spur, etc.) down the side. They sent me a couple of copies a while back, with a subscription solicitation. I have it framed behind my drill press. There was another offer to download but you need a password, which probably requires a subscription.
