Comment on Restoring a Craftsman 15″ Drill Press by Mikey https://www.machinistblog.com/restoring-a-craftsman-15%e2%80%b3-drill-press/comment-page-3/#comment-110359 Tue, 25 Aug 2020 05:26:07 +0000 https://www.machinistblog.com/?p=3932#comment-110359 The most likely thing would be a burr or crud on either the quill rack or the pinion gear; there isn’t anything else directly involved. I suppose there can be contact between the quill and the screw that adjusts for side play of the quill. There may be a burr inside that groove. This would be suggested if the jump occurs at the same place every time. Otherwise, I’m stumped.

I did not go for the pricey ones. Spent about $45 or so at Amazon for chuck and arbor, but it seems to be fine. Having an issue with the quill “jumping” when going up and down. I don’t see anything wrong with the quill grooves or the pinion teeth on the handle. Any ideas here would be useful.
