Pressure Foot Removal Tool

A pressure foot button or pad, frequently used at the end of a drill spindle, can be easily removed from its holding assembly by relieving opposite edges to permit insertion of a pry tool.

Referring to the figure, a pressure foot assembly 1 on the end of a drill spindle, not shown, carries a plastic button 2 that supports the spindle on a workpiece. By forming a pair of grooves 3 on opposite sides of the button flange 4, bifurcated tool 5 can be inserted to pry out the button. This enables easier replacement of the button when its bottom surface has become embedded with debris.
