Question about Delta 15 331 15" 115/230V Variable Speed Standard Drill Press
I have a bench drill press 1/2" chuck with a sheared part. It is the part with a square hole that allows the square driveshaft to move up and down. I cannot find a replacement part, no one wants to weld it (stainless steel), and no one around here can fabricate it. Anyone know what I can do?
Many thanks for any suggestions.
PS - Do you think I could have a piece of aluminum turned and drill my own square hole?
Sounds like you already have it figured out. Drill a round hole first then use a small square file to make the correct sized square. Depending on what the sheared piece looked like, you can find some square stock at the hardware store.
