To use auto-tapping, simply select the correct tap tool size for your hole. Then set the tapping depth on the drill press with the depth stop. Then insert the tapping tool into the chuck. Once the tapping tool is in place, turn on the drill press and it will start to rotate. If you pillar drill has auto-advance engage the auto-advance mechanism and it will automatically feed the tap into the hole in the workpiece until it reaches the desired depth. If you drilling machine does not have auto-advance, you then need to use the handwheel on the side of the press to advance the tapping tool into the hole. Make sure to set the depth stop before proceeding otherwise you could damage your tapping tool and break it off in the drilled hole.
Auto-tapping is a great feature for anyone who needs to tap a lot of holes. It can be especially helpful for professional machinists and sometimes DIYers who need to tap holes quickly and accurately.

Once the feed rate is set the operator initiates the rotation of the drill and then press a start button to start the advance of the drill bit with it automatically feeding into the workpiece at the set rate.
