Question and Answers

Q:

Sears 17 inch drill press model 113213873 assistance

A:

Thank you for your question on the drill press pulley spindle left handed threaded nut.

I do not remember having to have a special wrench to take the nut off.

There may have been one on the assembly line but not in the field.

I remember using a medium sized cold chisel and a hammer to tap the nut loose. You need the shock to break the nut loose because the spindle turns when you just use turning power.

You may have to soak it with some penetrating oil if it was not break loose right away.

Please let me know what you find to work on the removal of the nut.

Yes that does sound like the right wrench for removing the spindle nut. I am surprised you were able to find it. Thank you for your information on the wrench and I hope it will help anyone that is trying to replace or service the spindle on the drill press. Sam A.
