I have an old Drill press that has slope in the spindle.
I can feel slope when grabbing and moving upper part of the spindle
that comes out of pulley top.
I dissassembled spindle to check for wear. Spindle grooves look perfect
Here is my question: how worn spindle should look like?
Can it be that it's a worn sleeve causing slope not a spindle?
Yes, spindle is a part of quill assembly.
Please take a look at drill manual manual:
on page 16 there is an exploded view.
I have some play between part 65(Driving sleeve with inside grooves) and spindle
with outside grooves.
