  • Any DP1550 owners - questions

    I have noticed after owning the DP1550 for about two months now with very infrequent use that oil seems to be appearing on the tip of the chuck after it has sat for a few days. If you chuck a bit then remove it, oil is on the bit. Having never owned a drill press before, I ask, is this normal? Do I have a leak? Also, when turning the chuck is it normal to have a small amount of left/right play in the spindle shaft before the gears "catch"? I don't mean wobbling, my holes are so far all straight and true. Thanks.
