You take "corrective action" with a vise and/or clamps _before_ you lower the quill.

That is why one clamps the work piece securely to the table. A fence helps too

Bingo!
Just fixing to post that that is exactly why I always use a fence when using the drill press.

I get lazy and often don't when drilling in soft wood with twist drills 1/4" or smaller. Then I usually wish I had -- not because the bit grabbed the workpiece and whacked me with it, but because the hole didn't end up quite exactly where it should have.
When using a spade or forstner bit, or pretty much anytime I drill metal, I grab the drill press vise and/or clamps. I do wish that there was a quicker way to bolt/unbolt the vise to the table. The bolts with plastic handle-nut things are better than having to get out a wrench, but not by much...

I would not send my pencils to this guy!!! He's obviously a hack and not a Certified Pencil Sharpening Artisan (CPSA) or even a Certified Pencil Shar pening Specialist(CPSS)!! His ratio of core to barrel is way off and the an gle of the point way too steep. And the amount of graphite he left on the tip would give a low shaft gripper (LSG) black fingers. Maybe getting cut r ate LASIK might be okay but DO NOT TRUST YOUR VALUABLE PENCILS WITH THIS FL AKE!!!

Have you used Forrest's pencil sharpening service? They've got a great reputation for saw blades, does the same hold true for pencils?
I'd have to buy a few extra pencils, but for a quality sharpening, it'd be worth it.

Brass. I learned how treacherous drilling it can be. Fortunately my little drill press vice missed me as it went flying into the wall A standard bit will grab and either it and your holding devise will go for a spin or your drill bit will break. The trick I found was to stone the cutting edge to increase the cutting angle. It doesn't take much.
