Thanks to the two LJs who responded to my first posting on my new (used) drill press. Wax ing seems to be the preferred technique, so waxing it is.
I have another question. the table can swivel for angled boring, but there is a steel pin, about .25 in. in diameter that goes all the way through the collar. I am assuming this is to fix the right-angle position positively. This pin is tightly stuck. I thought I’d try putting some penetrating oil on it tonight and seeing if that might help loosen it up by tomorrow. Two questions—is there any customary way these pins are to be extracted—I assume pushed up from the bottom, but not sure.
Second, what is the proper way to extract this pin without damaging or breaking it?
