    Re: just set up dp1550 drill press

    Welcome to the forum
    The manual says ...
    TO CHANGE SPEEDS
    The spindle speed is determined by the location of the belts on the pulleys inside the head assembly. The speed chart located on the inside of the belt guard shows the recommended speed and pulley configuration for each drilling operation:

    is the chart missing?

    Here is a drill press speed chart

        Sorry, I don't have that drill press, my general came with it attached. Try calling customer service, they should be able to send you a sticker or new lid

          Please go here http://www.ridgid.com/Tools/Literature-Search and in the search box type in drill press. Next click the Search tab. The top of the three .pdf files should be the manual for your drill press. Please download it and then print out page 25 and see the chart at the top of the page.

          The file is too big for me to be able to upload it to the forum. I tried but the forum server automatically blocks it.

          This is the name of the file you want. DP1550_Drill_Press_Man.pdf

          Update:
          After clicking the above link, just copy & paste the file name into the search. It should return the file you need. With it being a good size .pdf file, I recommend downloading it to your hard drive and then opening it with Adobe Acrobat Reader. Page 25 shows the belt positions for different speeds.

              I recently re-drew my 1550 chart so I could print and hang it on the wall so these old eyes can see it better. I can easily print a PDF file of it and send it to you if you wish. Send me an E-mail and I'll send it to you, if you'd like. (cwmsmith@aol.com)
