Q:

Quill return spring installation 10324521

A:

The only information that we have for that older model of drill press is the parts list diagram. We don't have information on how to replace the feed return spring.

I apologize that we don't have the information that you are seeking for that drill press.

Would you believe??? Just today - I had to educate myself on adjusting/replacing a quill return spring! Pry off the cheap aluminum center plate on the quill adjusting hub. The hub can be removed by driving out the drift pin that connects the hub to the hollow shaft. This also frees the hub from the quill return spring. Pull the hub and shaft out. (The shaft can be easily removed if you reinstall the drift pin lightly...without connecting the spring.) You can now remove the old spring by lifting the far end. (Use a long skinny screwdriver to assist.) Install new spring by dropping the far end down over the retaining pin inside the drill press head. Attach hub to hollow shaft with drift pin lightly inserted & then slide this unit into place. Partially remove pin and use needle-nose pliers to pull near end of quill return spring into place. Now insert drift pin for the final time...making sure that the spring is captured by the pin. When you desire to adjust return tension, gently pull hub & shaft partially out of housing (This disengages the controlling teeth from the quill.) Turn hub & shaft one full turn counter-clockwise & reinsert. Test. Repeat if necessary. Good luck -

Q:

How can I keep the bits in the chuck of my old Craftsman drill press model 103.24521 from wobbling?

A:

Check the bits first to make sure that they are not bent. Roll the bits on a flat surface (piece of glass) to see if they wobble. (You may have already done this.) If the bits are okay, you could have a problem with a bearing. I recommend that you have the drill press serviced by a technician unless it is so old that it is not worth repairing. Here is link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .
