Question about Drills

2 Answers

I have a 12" Delta drill press - Model DP 300L. The spindle is slipping so that it has hardly any torque. It is not the belt that is slipping, but the spindle. I can hold the tip of the chuck and turn the pulleys without turning the spindle. I tried hammering up from the bottom but that had no effect. How can I fix this?

    That answer had nothing to do with the model I have and provided no help. I need advise, not a manual. Can someone please help?

Here is a complete parts break down of your drill press. http://www.toolpartsdirect.com/cgi-bin/schematic.cgi/delta/DP300L_TYPE_1 it looks like this is one of the ones that use a cogged spindle and sleeve to drive the chuck. you have probably stripped one or the other without tearing it down and seeing which part is worn would be guessing as to what is wrong with the spindle. with the parts breakdown of how it goes together it should be fairly simple to get it apart and find the worn part. that website also sells all the parts you will need.

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.

Will a variable drive pulley setup from a Jet JDP 12 work on my Delta DP 250?


if its a press fit on the motor spindle the parts need to be the same specs ...accurately measure the diameter of the motor spindle.. pulleys are usually machined to match motor spindle ,, if your pulley has a bush it may have been reduced from its bigger size and i may not have enough info so i may be wrong.. pete

I am using a Delta 17-950L drill press that when I use a 2" Forster bit the spindle stops. drill press is new and have cut approximately 100 2" holes. thought that the bit was dull so I purchased a new bit...


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.
