  • What size is the quill on a Rigid drill press?

    I need another spacer for my mortising attachment. The ones that came with it are too small. They fit my old DP, but not the Rigid.

    It should be easy enough to measure with a caliper if you have one.

    I have an older Craftsman DP and I use the Delta mortising attachment on it. None of the included adapters fit my DP. I made a shim to use between the closest match adapter and the quill. Works fine and have not had any slippage or problems. Its just a strip of shim stock that is slightly less than the circumference of the quill and the thickness required to take up the play so the adapter fits tight.

      After playing with it a little bit, I got one of the spacers to fit. I just had to mount it above the part of the quill that acts as a stop when the arbor goes back to the top.
