I have an old Packard floor standing drill press (model 1600HDF). I was trying to lower the table, lower than I had ever used it before.
I think the collar(?) on the table started binding. So instead of the table lowering as I cranked the handle, it grabbed the rack and started to pull it up. I heard a snap and saw the top rack ring pop up.
The rack ring cracked. Any ideas on where I can get a replacement. The column measured right at 2.875” in diameter.
I’m not experienced with drill press components. But I assume most of these rings are similar. Aside from the set screw, the ring has a taper on the inside where it traps the top of the rack.
I don’t necessarily expect to find a Packard ring, since it’s old and I don’t believe is considered a premium drill press, but I figure these things might be somewhat standardized.
Any ideas where to go for a replacement?
