Hello all…. I just bought an older Rockwell Drill Press model #15-091. I need some help, I went to the Delta site and was unable to find any information for this drill press. I am looking to change the chuck to a 1/2 inch chuck….any ideas where I can find information?
Thanks for any help that you can give.
Mike

Call Delta, I’ve heard they are very helpful and most likely will send you a re-print of the original manual. As far as parts, this is an excellent site.

Good luck,

Jim and Big Joe…Thank you both. I am beginning to think that I may have made a mistake buying this drill press. Only paid $100.00 for it and it runs out really nice but am having a real problem finding anything for the 15-091. I will cal Delta in the morning, so far they have been really great they have sent me a manual for free for my table saw, mortiser, band saw and one or two more tools that I have bought used. This is the first time though that I am unable to find anything on the internet.

Mike,

I’d rather have a rock solid metal Delta anything than the Chin and Mexico garbage they are peddling today. Unfortunately I live where many of these machines were originally manufactured, yet I don’t see that many of them around. Occasionally on Craig’s list, but not as many as I’d like to see. I guess most hold on to them as long as they can still obtain parts for them.

I’ve been considering the Ridgid DP1550, but I just can’t bring myself to pull the trigger on that item, or any item not made (I mean really made) in the U.S. of A.

Bigjoe…that is exactly one of the main reasons as to why I end up buying what I have purchased. The drill press was made in Canada, but I have no problem with that…the Canadians ( at least in my mind) build as good a product as we do here, and they play by the same rules as we do. Besides that as a rule the used tools are in my price range :).

I bought my chuck for the same exact model through grainger. P.S. I only signed up for this site to tell you this.

Have your say...
