You just move the belt up or down for a ratio change.

SOURCE: Changing speeds on Powermatic Drill Press

Katie,
Refer to the picture below. Loosen the locknuts (the one on the right side of the drill is shown, there is another on the left side). Use the lever to move the motor toward you, thereby loosening the drive belt(s). Open the top cover to expose the belt(s) and sheaves (most people incorrectly call them pulleys). You might have one belt and two sheaves, or you have two belts and three sheaves. The drill will go fastest when the belt is on the biggest motor sheave and the smallest sheave on the drill spindle. Of course the opposite sizes apply for the slowest speeds. Make sure the belt uses a pair of sheaves that are at the same height as each other (the belt has to stay in one plane). Now tighten the belt(s) by pushing the lever pretty hard away from you, and while holding it with your right hand tighten the left side locknut with your left hand. Now tighten the right locknut. Close the cover. ----- OK, so now you know how to CHANGE speeds, what about drilling glass? This can be tricky. You must use a pretty slow speed (maybe the slowest, depending on the size of hole you are drilling. And you must keep the spot you are drilling flooded with water to keep the glass cool. And you must apply pretty gentle pressure. And the use of a drill bit intended for drilling glass helps a lot. And don't try the first hole in something expensive! Practice on something disposable first. Take your time. AND WEAR SAFETY GLASSES!
Good luck!

How to change belt on 17-990x delta drill press


You've probably already tried looking for set screws on the pulleys, both the pulleys that attach to the spindle and the pulleys on the motor shaft, to remove both/either sets of pulleys and allow replacing the belt. I didn't mean to restate the obvious; I'm just brainstorming. I've restored a few old machine tools, and I've found that removing pulleys often requires the use of gear pullers. This is due to slight mushrooming of the ends of the shaft due to heating or hammering. I have even had to file the end of the shaft in one case to reduce the diameter before I could remove the pulley. Also, based on your picture, you might be able to remove the entire motor from its mounting to allow replacing the belt. read more at http://www.bestcordlessdrillhq.com/

Hi, We have a C188FX Journeyman drill press but no manual. we don't know how to change the speed. Can you help? We would like to find a manual for future questions as well.


Open the top and move the belt to different wheels. There are different size wheels the belt rides on for multible speeds.

I have a Clarke 16 speed drill press model#BT1029. I would like to slow it down to 160 r.p.m's. Can this be done and if so how?


by removing the top cover of the drill press you will find a number of pullys. there will be a belt on one of them. by changing the belt from one pully set to another will change its speed. it will tell you in your owner manual how do do so. as you will have to adjust the slack on the belt.

I have several camel back drills If the shafts are parallel the problem is most likley a loose belt and the web is crooked.To solve this with mine I went to tractor supply and got belting for a bailer . cut it on a table saw to width and crimped the lacing on.
This belting is rubber and grips vary well.This fixed the problem each time.

I would go to Dewaltservicenet.com and you can download a breakdown and also user manual for this tool with information about the set up and belt assembly, the breakdown would show you how everything is supposed to go in the pulley section. L et me know if you need further help
