What size taper is on a delta DP220 drill press so I CAN BUY A 1/2" DRILL CHUCK TO PUT ON IT

If its possible, pop along to a local machine shop and ask nicely if they could help with identifying the Morse Taper, if its a Morse. Go online for what tapers would have been used around that period. Drill chucks are usually 1/2 UNF mount even if its a late metric unit. You would need a Morse to 1/2 UNF or taper to taper if you buy a taper fit chuck.

I have an old Delta D-220 drill press. While the chuck spins true, even at high speed, a drill bit will have a slight wobble towards the end of the bit. I tried many bits so its not a bent bit. Solutions? ...

You are right,but if the wobble is not too big to do drill jobs it can be used.Sometimes drill jobs need to be precise,so the you will need it just aligned.

Try at : Power Tool Parts and Tool Repair Diagrams or go direct to this link.

Good price and service.

I have a Guardian Power floor model drill press. The spindle will not retract. I would appreciate knowing how to fix this and where I can get parts. Thank you. Bill Powell

Can you move the spindle up and down with the handle? If you can't make sure the spindle lock is not on. Is the spindle clean and rust free , well lubed? Here is a link to a manual for your drill press: You can order parts here. Usually the return spring can be adjusted with a nut on the left side of press. Possilby the return spring could be broken.

This sounds like a belt tension problem. If the motor pulley is still spinning but the spindle pulley is stopped try increasing the tension on the belts.
If both the pulleys slow down or stop together, then try reducing the spindle speed to give it more torque under load.

clean the spindle and the inside of the chuck with easy off oven cleaner. get it all very clean and then be sure to remove all of the debris. pound the chuck onto the spindle with either a rubber mallet or put a block of wood under the chuck and use a regular hammer. DO NOT hit the chuck directly with a steel hammer.

Delta 8' table top drill press

If the spindle is tapered, and you have a tapered chuck, it is a interference fit. You can move the table out of the way for swinging room and smack it on with a mallet. Or you can block the chuck up on the table and force the spindle into it.
Both spindle should be smooth and clean, sometimes if a drill bit grabs and stops it will twist the chuck off and gall up the taper surfaces. Put some chalk dust on the spindle before assembling if you have some, it will help prevent galling should the chuck come off

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
