Remove the rack and have it welded together. File the teeth at the weld point to ensure smooth movement of the pinion gear. place plenty of lubricant in the groove at the base to ensure that the rack moves around when the table position is altered.

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.

Will not drill straight.

It is my pleasure to guide you.

1. Check the straightness of the drill.
a. lay the drill on a flat surface and roll the drill across the surface. You can tell if the drill is bent.

2. Is the drill chucked off center? That is easy to do when you put the drill into the chuck and tighten the chuck. Sometimes the drill shaft will get caught in the check grippers out of center.

3. Make sure the drill head and or table is not at the 0 degrees the way they should be.
a. This can be done with a small T-Square. Put a drill that you know is straight into the chuck. Put the T-Square on the table against the drill. You should be able to tell if the drill chuck is out of square. If you have a straight edge that has a level bubble you will be able to tell easier.

Good luck and please post back that you are successful or that I can be more helpful.

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.
