I need a key for the shop fox w1669. where can i get one. Thanks, Doug

Your drill press uses a 5/8" JT33 drill chuck. Call a local hardware or tool repair shop and see if they can get you a key for that model chuck. You may also find one online but the shipping cost would probably be more then the key.

I have a Delta 17-950L drill press. The table is perfectly level according to my level. In checking I find out that the chuck is not coming down completely vertical. An eighth of an inch in a four inch...

You don't want the table to be perfectly level, it does need to be perfectly perpendicular to the quill. If the motor housing or quill is not be perfectly straight up and down, as appears to be the case with your drill you will need to square the table to the quill, both left to right and front to back.

Pro-Tech 10" drill press model 10162. Quill travel adjustable?

There is probably a depth stop collar with a thumbscrew on the shaft which has the three handles attached to it. This collar would be about two inches in diameter. All you have to do is loosen the thumbscrew.

Excess play in spindle. How do you get to the quill and bearings? Is a pulley puller what is needed to get the pulley off?

The quill is separate from the pulley. All you need to do is remove a bolt on the opposite side of the handle, this should let you uncover the return spring. Take the spring off and pull the handle out, on the right side. the quill will then come out the bottom

Seized cylinder for up and down control

I have a couple of drill presses that have a quill lock which fixes it in place. I am not familiar with your machine, but this may be an issue.

It may be a large wing type nut on the shaft that the handle is on.

It is also possible that the quill is jammed. There is a small gear on the shaft that the handles rotate that fits on a rack type gear that moves the quill.
This could happen if the quill is all the way down and passed the gear.

It is also possible that this is jammed or has something stuck in it.

Drill press

Release the belts and check if you can turn the chuck by habd, if the chuck won;t turn, two things could be wrong, 1) the quill bearings are bad or 2) the shaft that runs down thru the quill could ve rusted causing a restriction, if that's the case, WD 40 should loosen it.

Drill Presses Features

You compare the following features: Horsepower (HP) is the maximum power produced by the motor. Higher horsepower allows you to bore larger holes through tougher material. Drill presses are available with motors from 1/4 to 1 HP. Size/center drilling capacity is determined by the distance from the center of the chuck to the column. Since the press can bore a hole in a circle with a diameter two times the distance from the center of the chuck to the column, the size is listed as twice the distance from the column to the center of the chuck. A 16" drill press can drill a hole up to 8" from the edge of a straight board or at the center of a 16" diameter circle. Variable speeds allow you to drill different diameter holes through different materials without damaging the material or drill bits. Drill presses are available with five to twelve speed settings. The more speed settings, the more versatile the drill press. The table on most drill presses can be raised and lowered along the entire length of the column. It can also swivel 360° around the column for boring oddly shaped pieces. Better presses have large, tilting tables with fences. Quill travel determines the depth to which the press can bore holes. Greater quill travel allows you to bore deeper holes. Depth-stops control the depth to which the quill descends and limit the depth of the hole. Depth-stops are good for repetitive boring and dowel holes. The more precise your depth-stops, the more accurate your boring operations.
