Re: What size is the quill on a Rigid drill press?
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.
