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.

How To Assemble A Rigid Bench Top Drill Press?

Rigid bench top drill press comes with an assembled head, but the chuck, handles, and belts need assembly. As the assembly progress, it becomes heavy eventually and may even require two people.
To help you assemble this Rigid bench top drill press, we have attached here step by step guide for you:
Step 1 Your first job is to unpack the drill press. The instructions are given on the top so that you will have no issue unpacking or assembling the tool.
Step 2 After you unpack, take the post and attach it to the base. As the press has too much oil on the post, you should wipe away all the oil and wax it afterward.
Step 3 You should clean the table post as well. So, wipe the oil off the table post using an oil-soaked paper and apply wax to it. If the oil remains, you can use a putty knife and scrape it off. The oil was used for a long boat ride to prevent rust.
Step 4 As the cleaning procedure is done, take the table and install the table in the table arm.
Step 5 The next step is putting drill head on a moving dolly and wheeling it over to the base. Now, tip the base and slide the drill head. Using your legs, lift and stand drill press up. You will not need another person for help if you use your leg doing so.
Step 6 This step requires installing the idler pulley and belts.
Step 7 After pulley and belt, install handles. You can choose the position depending on your habit. Most of the people install it on the right-hand side. But if you are a lefty, you can use left-hand side.
Step 8 Take a thick scrap and put it on the table. Wide open the chuck jaw and clean the mating surface of the shaft and the inner side of the chuck. Make sure to clean it nicely for keeping its stable position. Then, take the handle and press shaft in the chuck very tightly.
Step 9 There must be 60W bulb which is needed to be installed behind the handles in a small recess. If you do not find enough space to fit 60W bulb, you can press a CFL pigtail style up and reinstall the guard.
Step 10 The last step is to square your table to the quill. Combination table can also be taken in this case. It is required to use a bit which is straight and spins true.

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.
