seems to be working on it and the price was pretty good ($50). I would
like to replace the chuck which is pretty beat up but it is not obvious
to me how to remove the old one.
I looked on the web but couldn't find an owners manual for this model but
I did find one for the 1150A which looks pretty similar. On the 1150,
you insert the handle of the chuck key into the chuck collar and unscrew
it from the spindle. There is a Jacobs taper 33 on the chuck and this
will cause the chuck to come out.
On the 1140, there is no hole in what looks like the chuck collar.
Before I did anything rash like trying to grab what looks like the chuck
collar with a pair of pliers or some such tool, I thought I would ask
if anyone that reads this list was familiar with this model of drill
press and could provide some guidance.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
