Ryobi Drill Press
« on: September 25, 2012, 10:02:43 AM »
Last night Mike and I took a look at the bent chuck on the drill press, and there's good and bad news.
 
The Bad:
 
We couldn't get the chuck off. This morning I downloaded the manual and the chuck gets hammered on with a mallet and a piece of wood. It must be a morse taper or something similar. I'll try prying it off next time there.
 
The Good:
 
$$$ Prices $$$
 
Chuck: $9.33
Spindle shaft: $4.91
Lower bearing: $1.99
Upper Bearing: $3.31
 
I'll wait till I get the chuck off and put a dial indicator on the spindle and see what else we might need before ordering parts. These prices are REALLY cheap! :)
 
Thanks for the help Mike.

I honestly want to know how it got bent in the first place...cause DAMN.  Something must have really banged it.  Thanks for looking into spindles, etc - If you repair the spindle/chuck or whatever then I'll consider it 100% donated to the lab.  I wrote "ThantiK" on it to let people know it was just on "permanent loan", so we'll have to scrub that off =P

Just FYI, I replaced the drill spindle once on a Rigid drill press, and was able to find an assembled shaft to drop in. Just something to look at.


The shaft can be bent from people trying to force the drill into something they shouldn't, or it was dropped at some point.

Heat the chuck with the hot air gun.  It will expand and then come off the spindle easily.
