SOURCE: i need a chuck wrench/tool for a duracraft drill press

Are you talking about the chuck key? That's the little wrench with a collar of gear teeth on it.
There are only a few standard sizes plus a couple of odd-balls. Last time I looked, Sears carried a good selection. If you have the old one, take it with you to the store. If you don't have the old one, find a way to measure or approximately measure what you need. Another chuck key that doesn't fit can be a useful reference. If you can find something (maybe a drill bit) that is a close fit into one of the three holes in the chuck, that can be useful too.

This is not a solution yet but some info as to what your up against. Duracraft was purchased by Honeywell in 1996 and then sold to Kaz Incorporated in 2002. Here is the Duracraft disclamer from Blain's Fam and Fleet that has exclusing distribution for Duracraft tools today

NOTE: Duracraft products purchased prior to 2000 were not made for Blain's Farm & Fleet, therefore we cannot provide replacement parts, warranties or literature for these limits.

Your best bet would probably be a by chance listing on e-bay for the product 40830 drill press and then contact the seller for a copy of the manual.

SOURCE: Looking for replacement benchtop drill press table.

On a small drill press you could make a 4.5" high riser block. Steel bar would be best. You could roll pin a bunch of 3/4" thick bars together in a stack just big enough to lock to the base T-slots. For tall parts you just then pry some of the bars off the roll pins with a big screw driver. I like to get rid of Universal or Adjustable stuff as it always introduces flex, movement while running and non-scoocum rigidity!
Scoocum Rigidity: Pertains to Harmonics of metal cutting with anything sticking out more than 1" from a fixed support of some kind. And also pertaining to large Cedar Totem Poles of the Pacific West Coastal Indians.

Drill press chuck fix


The chuck on almost all drill presses is held on by friction only by use of the tapered fit you mention. Make sure both the spildle tip and the chuck hole surfaces are completely clean and dry. Set your table so when you move the spindle down it will contact the table. With the drill OFF, put the chuck on the spindle and press it down on with the table as hard as you can without bending any handles or gears. This should be sufficient to hold it in place.

Fleetwood 50 drill press chuck connects to the spindle how?


The chuck on 99% of the drill presses is just a press fit. The end of the spindle where the chuck goes on is slightly tapered to hold it on. Make sure the end of the spindle and inside surface of the chuck are very clean. With the motor off, raise the table high enough so you can still get the chuck on the spindle then turn the handle to lower the chuck against the table and press it firmly against the table to wedge the spindle in the chuck. There shouldn't be any need for anything more than this.

I need a 5/8" chuck key for a Mod.1600(1984)Duracraft drillpress


There are perhaps half a dozen sizes of chuck keys. Sears carries them. You can measure the size of the pin by finding a drill bit or bolt that fits well and taking that to the store with you. You can approximate the size of the teeth by using a piece of paper and forming it over the chuck and using a pencil to rub over the teeth. Put a hole in the paper with the bolt or drill bit to capture the radius from the pin to the teeth. If you find a couple of close candidates, buy them both. Sears will take the other one back. Good luck.

Chuck and shaft (spindle?) it was attached to fell off.


It sounds like it is a Morse Taper. If so what you need to do is clean bith the internal and external parts with something like brake clean to remove any oil or dirt. Then wipe both with a clean paper towel. Put a block of wood on the table or if you have enough room move the table out of the way. What you want to do is seat the spindle parts and you can either tap on the chuck (make sure threads are all the way retracted) or usse the feed handle to push and put pressure to lock parts together. If you have any more questions let me know.
