I recently picked up a fairly old (late 1970's) 16" Taiwanese drill press of unknown history.
Now that it's set up, pne problem I've noticed is that long drills in the chuck wobble all over the place. If I indicated the part that rotates above the chuck I get almost no motion (less than 0.001") rotating the chuck by hand. It also feels tight.
Chucking a straight rod and indicating that- it visibly wobbles maybe0.02". Is this likely a b*gger'd chuck, a bent spindle or what?
