It sounds like it is a Morse Taper. If so what you need to do is clean bith the internal and external parts with something like brake clean to remove any oil or dirt. Then wipe both with a clean paper towel. Put a block of wood on the table or if you have enough room move the table out of the way. What you want to do is seat the spindle parts and you can either tap on the chuck (make sure threads are all the way retracted) or usse the feed handle to push and put pressure to lock parts together. If you have any more questions let me know.

On the left side, facing the drill press, opposite the spindle crank there should be a return spring in a housing. If spring is not broken, you can increase the spring tension so it will raise the spindle. If it doesn't, take the spring apart and see if it is not broken, or has become detatched.

To correct that 2 degree angle, there is often an allen screw at the bottom of the table swivel. Look where the nut to loosen the table is. Under it is an allen head screw. loosen the table swivel a bit and turn that in an eight of a turn at a time, re tighten then remeasure.

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: http://www.dewaltservicenet.com/Products/ProductManual.aspx?q=15-331 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.
