SOURCE: The shaft on my Delta floor mdoel press drill keeps sliding out

This sounds like a morse taper adaptor. if so look at the taper for any unusual wear. if none what I would do is get something like brake clean or similar product to remove all oil and grease. clean the shaft and the internal socket. wipe off with cleam paper towel after cleaning. retract the chuck jaws to prevent damage to the chuck and align the tang on adaptor with the internal socket. Take a piece of wood and hammer and hit the chuck seating the taper. You can also try using the table with a block of wood and the feed handle to seat it. If it continues to fall you have worn parts that need replaced. Good luck

SOURCE: I am changing the tranny,

Have you not looked over the transfer end of the shaft.
It will have to be unbolted,pretty obvious.

SOURCE: I own a Delta 23

first mark the caps so that when you reassemble they will align properly, Next get a small screwdriver and GENTLY pry the cap apart. One end probably has a rotating switch with wires coming from it so be careful. When reassembling you can use a small piece of wood to tap the end bells back into place.

SOURCE: new shaft for a delta 23-840

You need to check if the cost of the shaft will be too much and whether it makes sense. You have not indicated the reason for changing the shaft, if there is damage e it can be mended in most cases with the help of a machine shop.
So check cost with replacement before you attempt.

SOURCE: how do you change the cutter bar bearings on a delta 12 inch planer

You are looking at a major disassembly to get at the cutter head bearings, everything is built around the cutter head. The motor drives the cutter head on one end of it and the cutter head drives the rollers at the other end. Most of the components have to be removed to get the cutter head and it's bearings out. You can go to and do a search on your model number for a good breakdown of your planner and see what you need to remove to get at the cutter head and it's bearings.

The belt in the motor of my 10 inch delta table saw broke its a Bando synchronous 100XL belt...Think I can find a replacement...However, before it broke whenever I started the saw I noticed unusual sounds...

I have the delta 10 inch cabinet saw with the uni-fence, I bought just before somebody at delta smartened up with the left tilt blade, that is the worst design I have ever seen. I came real close to buying a Powermatic the same day I got this thing. Anyway, my saw sounds like a mack truck in reverse slamming the dump gate when it starts, I don't think there is anything to oil, it has bearings on the shaft. I found a ring of some sort on the floor one day that fell out of the saw, broken in half, I have never found where it came from. We just laugh at it, It is a bad saw. I bought the 12 Rockwell/delta planer the same week, Oh boy did we have fun with that, instantly went through the set of knives on it, maybe 3 passes, I said what the heck. I called delta and told them this is the biggest piece of junk I have ever seen, I said for $1300 it should put a finish on the board when it comes out, and it should have carbide knives, I said, If I had know it was made in Taiwan, i would have bought a grizzly. and saved $500. And gotten a better planer. She said, I'm sorry, I can send you some new knives. I sold it. Still have the saw though. Never had problems with the bearings. Hope this helps.

Depending on your budget, I suggest replacing the item. It sounds like your bearings are bad, which means tearing apart the case and replacing them (which don't cost much). There are two bearing encasements so you would need to replace both. If you're up for the challenge, give it a try! The bearings can typically be found on the manufacturers website.

Front load dryer make a horrid squeaking sound as it goes around. Heat's great - it just squeaks!

There are nylon or cloth type guide bushings(bearings) at the front of the drum which may be worn. The drum rides on these to keep it suppurted. You can replace from retailer and or try to lubricate with silicone spray.

Bulb lights but blower doesn't; how to fix?

once you get the case apart, you should be able to see the bearing case on both sides of the motor that the shaft goes through (lead colored). the motor mount screws also take the motor apart. once you get the motor bearings off, put some 3-in-1 oil in the star shaped openings in the bearing cases. clean off the shaft with wd-40 on a rag, wiping it clean. also, using a q-tip soaked with wd-40, clean out inside the brass bearings. once they dry, put it all back together. do not get wd-40 or oil on the motor barrel or the windings.

Leaking oil at spline shaft slip yoke at rear of transmission

there is a long bush type bearing in this tunnel just at the end were the seal fits in it can were out and let the prop shaft flap about, this in turn rips the seal to bits,,,also the yoke has a polished part on the end that go's over the spline into the end of the gear box tunnel the seal can were a groov into this part, and no amount of new seals will stop it leaking them as the new seal runs in this worn out groov, again ripping it to bits,,,test the long bush type bearing by holding the prop shaft yoke and pushing it up and to the side, if it moves about replace the bush in the end of the tunnel as well,, its a push in fit! with a big hammer!!
if the yoke has a groov in it you need a new prop as all prop shafts are balanced so you can just fit a new yoke it could throw the car up in the air when your driving it down the free way,,,,by shaking it apart
i hope this is of help to you

How do I do a front drive shaft on a 99 silverado? My ujoint is out towards the back. I can see the front just has the 4 bolts to take that apart. what I am wondering is if the back slides out of the deal...

I see that the solution given is for an axle shaft and not the drive shaft that was asked about. I am 99% sure that if you take out the bolts the other end will slide out of the t-case. Then the u-joint can be replaced as normally done.

Changing the sanding pads

You use a 1/2 inch socket wrench to remove the nut at the top of the spindle shaft, slide the old sanding sleeve off and the new one on.  Replace the nut.  You may also have to insert a different size table insert if you are changing the sleeve size.
