Quill tension NEW
by: Anonymous

Mine is missing the adjusting screw that mounts up through the bottom of the housing that would turn the spring tension housing using the gear teeth on the outer rim. The jam nuts do not do anything but prevent the housing from working loose.

mechanism for raising drill NEW
by: John

I bought this drill press and tried to adjust the spring tension for the handle. When I loosen the double nut arrangement, it just binds. It seems like the spring adjustment mechanism should connect to the housing to work properly. Does any one have ant pictures of how this should work?

Answer to Phil's Request for a Wiring Diagram 15-017 NEW
by: Clay

Dear Phil, why would you need a wiring diagram for a 15-017 drill press? Well, OK. Let me just give you a verbal on it, because all it is is this. The three wires in the cord, white, black and green go to the switch. The black wire goes to one side of the switch. The green wire is grounded to the metal of the press. The white wire is wired direct to the white wire that it in the same kind of rubber cord that goes to the motor connections. The black wire in the motor cable goes to the OTHER SIDE of the Single Pole Single Throw switch. The green wire in the motor cable goes to the grounded connection on the press to the motor grounded connection, usually a free screw in the motor connection box. Man, that's all there is to it unless you are dealing with something I can't figure out.

Need Copy of Owner's Manual Rockwell 15-017 Drill Press

I inherited this drill press from my late father's estate, and wish now (like so many sons) that I had paid more attention to the old man's ramblings about learning to use and maintain it while he was still alive.

In short: does anyone have a copy of an Owner's Manual for it?

removing the chuck
by: patrick o'dea

i recently purchased this drill press. all other drill presses i've owned simply required the tapping of a forked wedge between the spindle and the chuck, to remove the chuck.

this one doesn't want to come off and i'm afraid to use too much force. is this one different? if so, what do i do to remove the chuck?

please email odeaone@cox.net

thank you.
