Subject: Drill Chuck Cleanup
I acquired a used Delta 16" Drill press a while back and have just
using it finally. The Chuck has a very slight bit of external rust and
doesn't spin easily - feel sort of 'gummy' to turn and I pretty much
use the key.
How does one go about disassembling and cleaning a chuck ?
I wouldn't disassemble it. I'd give it a good solvent spray or two or
three('til it drips cleanly), then a light oiling. Tom
