  • Quill Size for the DP1550 Drill Press (Repost from Woodworking forum)

    Can anyone supply me with the diameter of the quill on the DLP1550 15" full size drill press?

    I am trying to locate a heavey duty mortising attachment and want to be sure I get one that will fit. The Ridgid model is just not working for me. I've purchased two over the years and the first time I used either one, the base attachment bolts and quill compression screw heads stripped immediately (despite knowing how easy this happens with this kit and being very, very carefull the second time around) and the handles used to tighten them down invariably snap. The seem to be made of pressed aluminum and are not strong at all.

    Also, if anyone can recommned a different brand of mortising attachment, I'm all ears.

    Any help here would be greatly aprreciated.
