delta drill press table


Is there a replacement table for the 17-925 production style drill press
table? I'd like to replace it with a round table with the "X" slots? Thank
you.

Just haunt ebay for a while, one will come along. Generally, anything with the same column size can be made to fit... --Glenn Lyford

Believe it or not, you can actually make the table you want if you have a lathe to turn the central hub. I have a drill press at my plant that had the production type table with "T" slots and no center hole for the drill to escape into. Turned up a hub to fit the drill press table holder with a flange on top to tap for the top plate. I cheated and used an aluminum disk I got at a machine shop yard sale. It used to be a sacraficial face plate for a large lathe. Has many tapped and untapped holed. I used 4 screws to hold the plate to the hub. Been working fine for years and so far no one using it has complained.
You could find a a circular plate somewhere, or get one cut from steel or whatever.
Otherwise, find an old junked drill press with the table you want and adapt it.

Yes, I work for UCB (administrative staff) but I do not have any contact with the machine shop. Since this is for home use, I cannot use university resouces for personal use.
So, is there any one in the area (East bay, Berkeley region) who can turn me a hub that will fit my press and better yet -- include the plate? I'll post the diameter in another entry. Thank you.
Hi, Dennis. I bet if you asked, there is at least one member of the news group in your area that would love to make a hub for you and possible cut out a top piece for you. Why don't you ask the group if there is someone in the area that would be willing to help.
I see you are associated somehow with UCB. Isn't there someone there with shop access that could work with you to make what you need?

Thank you for the suggestions. Unfortunately I don't have a lathe. Mightbe economical to have a machine shop turn a hub for me as I do have roundsteel plate laying around. "silveragemarvel" wrote in message news:gambmh$2etd$ snipped-for-privacy@agate.berkeley.edu...
