I had an opportunity to buy that exact drill press model ,the seller told me the reason for selling it was:
“the amount of run-out was no longer acceptable for metal fabrication”
So the seller got it for free from where he worked and wanted to sell it as a woodworking DP,I passed up on that deal because of it.
.010” is the thickness of a business card so for woodworking purposes is not horrible.
But since it is a Delta,you probably could not find the parts for it to fix it.
