Drill press ID

I picked up a drill press on CL a few years ago, ended up trading it to a friend shortly after, just got it back. It's obviously nowhere new and appears to have been well used, and could use some maintenance. Specifically, the bearings aren't in very good shape.

It doesn't seem to have any markings on it as far as brand etc, and I've never rebuilt a drill press before, so I'm having difficulty figuring out where to start. Anyone have suggestions? I took a pic of the sticker on the motor and the sticker on the side of it, but neither one has a brand. Still, for $50 a few years ago and then $50 for it and a press I feel it's a good deal

oh... forgot to mention that the arbor says HD YAMA 3-16mm on it, although who knows if it's original

Looks very similar to the Harbor Freight 5-Speed Benchtop drill press we had at my old office. I'd look at those first and see what matches up. The knobs and power switch were different on ours compared to what you have, so that may not be correct.

I posted a thread on garagejournal, seeing what replies I get.

It doesn't seem to have the standard way of detaching the chuck - there's no slot in the quill. Figuring that out is the first thing I need to do.

It's probably a taper-mount chuck, so you'll need chuck removal wedges to get it off the taper.

It could also be thread-on, in which case, seat a big fat allen wrench in the chuck, and bang it with a hammer.

There's no slot in the quill to use wedges

someone on garage journal suggested that it might use wedges directly above the chuck, horizontal, to get it out. I guess I might need to make some.

this, thats a central machinery drill press, or a rebranded there of. Harbor Freight brand.

Its actually a surpringly solid drill press. especially if its the heavy duty version with the 3/4 horse motor.


Its pretty damn beat looking though :/

It appears to have been made in 1994. Didn't realize HF had been around that long.

It's 1/2hp, not 3/4.


I managed to get the entire assembly, quill and all, out. Any pictures of the special tool would be appreciated.

theyve been around way way longer than that, since the early 80s i think. But all their shit is knockoffs, so it could be rebranded as anything.

Ill snap a few pics of the tool when i get home. It may be different since mine is the heavyduty version.

Can you take more pics? The chuck looks like it'd use a standard taper key.

Well, I managed to remove the quill, followed by a snapring and the outer part of it, so now I've got the shaft that goes up to the pulley, with the lower bearing still on it.

Upper bearing is a 6201 (32x12x10), lower a 7202 (35x15x11). Any suggestions for where to order them? Actually, lower may be a 6202 but I think it makes way more sense to use something designed for axial load there. Would also like to know what grade I need.



Not sure what the best way of getting the bearing off the shaft is.

edit: not sure I did order right on bearing sizes. I stated OD, ID, thickness.
