Simple Help Needed - Delta Drill Press Question


If you have a Delta brand drill press, could you check to see if it is a model 17-965 or 17-965C? I need some measurements of the quill, etc and they have to be taken by someone who knows how to use a caliper or micrometer well enough to get me relatively good numbers...
I'll owe you a coffee, beverage of choice or small discount on your AutoDrill order in the future. <grin>

The 2004 Delta catalog shows that the quill diameter is 1 3/4 inches or 44mm. Jim

Jim,
Thanks for the tip. It is appreciated. Unfortunately, that page is innacurate. That's the measurement of the quill that they spec it at but not the measurement where I necessarily clamp onto. There might be a "step" for a depth guage, etc. We have the catalog here and mark 'em up real good once we get the measurements the first time around, but I've never had my hands on this model. Someone else suggested going to a dealer... It would be like asking your automobile dealer's parts counter and asking them what the side wall diameter of an internal gear for your transmission is. They know what the gear is (if you're lucky!), but unless they had access to the original CAD drawing to make the gear, they don't have that info.
The measurment I need is going to be accurate to +/- .001" or so too. :)
Bottom line is that I need a "hands on" measurement."
My customer gets theirs in 2-3 weeks so I can always wait... But I'd rather start my 3-4 week manufacturing process today rather than wait till then.

My 17-965 has a quill diameter of 1.851" to 1.853" right above where the depth gage clamps on.
