Rewind spring assembly for Pro Tech drill press

The rewind spring assembly is missing causing the spindle not to retract and in the down position. The drill press is a Pro Tech model 1406, S/N-02126, spindle JT#2-1/2 manufactured 2-19-88. I need to know where I can get the spring assembly and the cost.

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.

Pull cord will not retract when assembled. When I took the head apart it works fine.


The question then becomes 'What's stopping the cord from retracting?'
Friction somewhere along the travel of the cord or the winding mechanism is causing this. Find the rubbing point and correct the alignment. Be sure the spring is correctly wound first before re - assembly. There must be spring tension on the winder mechanism to function correctly.
Other than that, check to see if the cord is tangling on itself and preventing the rewind from working.

25hp pull start cord not retacting spring has been replaced


When fitting any pull start spring, you must first pre wind the spring. Once the spring has been at least 1/2 way wound up or tensioned, wrap the pull rope around the spool. When you assemble it and pull the cord, the spring should wind up further to its fully wound position and now retract as normal. If you don't prewind the spring, there will be little or no tension to rewind the rope.

You need to wind the spring back in a coil at a time, it is not easy if you have never done one, order a new spring, this will come pre wound in a cassette and is an easy fit.

Starting rope won't rewind


There are two or three screws that hold the retract assembly on to the engine cover. Take these off, and pull the retract off. First, try to turn the pulley on the inside in the direction that the rope would turn it if you you were pulling it out. Will it rewind? If not, there is a screw on the top of this assembly, that's covered up with a sticker. you'll need to remove this screw, and pull the pulley out. There will be a spring on the inside of this. check the spring to see if it's broken. If not, and it's just come loose, put it back into the slot that holds it, and wind it up enough to get it back together. turn the spring in the direction that the rope would pull it out, until it won't go any more. Hold it, and reinsert the rope, tie a couple of good knots in the end, trim the excess, and let it retract the rope into the assembly. Put the assembly back on your engine, and you're good to go.

Bobbin rewind problems


Either the winder rubber is worn down one side, or the spindle has seized, take the top off and check and see if you can turn the winder by hand, if not then it has seized and the only way to free it is to put a couple of drops of WD40 on the spindle, put an electric drill on the end of the spindle and start the drill very slowly.

I have a Black and Decker drill press and the spindle is dropping out. Is there a clip or something that should hold it in? There is a groove in the top of the spindle for something.


generally on a larger drill press the spindle is a taper fit. What you would need to do is clean the taper and the socket thoroughly with break clean or something with will air dry. Then take a block of wood and place it on the chuck with the jaws retracted and hit the piece of wood to seat the taper socket.

The chuck will not return to the up position


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.

Drill Presses problem


If adjustments are necessary, follow the this procedure: Spindle side-play can be minimized by adjusting the locknut located on the left side of the motor unit 1-1/2 inches behind the spindle and towards the bottom of the motor unit. While moving the feed handle up and down, tighten the lock nut until the play is minimized, but not so tight so as to restrict free movement of the spindle. The spindle should return by itself to the full up position. The drive belt tension may be adjusted by removing the top cover and then loosening the two nuts on either side of the motor pulley. Adjust the motor position and tighten the nuts so that moderate finger pressure against the belt causes it to deflect 3/16" to 1/4" (see Figure 6). Excessive belt tension may result in damage to the bearings. Note: Belt tension can also affect the generation of "noise" in the drill press. Although it does not affect drilling accuracy, it may be desirable to adjust the tension for minimum noise. The spindle has been generously oiled at the factory. You may have to periodically wipe off oil that makes its way down the spindle.
