Maybe not the answer you want, but why not cobble up a counter weight of some sort. Old window balance weights perhaps. Greg

Hi Bill, thanks for the reply, yes, if it was for a 3" column, I would have been interested in it if Iggy hadn't of jumped in. Let me know if still available. Thanks Marty

so far, I've sent photos to everyone who inquired - we shall see if these parts are useful to someone
oh, and I have two spare columns still - the kind that mount to a table - these are all for the Z-head 17" Delta DP-10 but they may fit other things

Bill, I saw the parts, they are nice, but I think that my drill press requires something a little different.

Yes, it looks very proprietary to the Delta. I think I'll watch for Powermatic specific parts. I may well take the idea offered and make one up like this suggests:

I wonder if one could use a sash 'spring balance' to do the same thing in a faster, less complicated way?
