Hello, all new here, Thanks for having me. My interest is in finding Model # and P/N's of items for the correct model. So, the head casting is a DP-225, and is missing the pulley/belt guard. Would love to replace it. Are the various covers somewhat interchangeable, as far as 14", 17" models? It seems the mount holes line up, etc. Thank You and I look forward to learning more, Tim

Welcome. Could be. One of the strategies for keeping costs down is to share parts with different models. By the way, the cheapest Deltas were/are Taiwanese sold by a number of other companies.

I did a little digging and found there are many models associated with this drill press.

https://www.amazon.com/ROCKWELL-Utility-DP-225-Casting-Operator/dp/B019NI6M1U This link shows the various models associated.

- I also located a Delta parts manual for a DP-225 at Delta Manufacturing Co. - Publication Reprints - 14? DRILL PRESS (OLD STYLE, MODEL A, WITH DP-225 HEAD CASTING) | VintageMachinery.org

- also a guy that has already played the 'restore' game: https://www.reddit.com/r/woodworking/comments/48mtlf/1955_delta_drill_press_dp225_restore/

- assuming you cant find a Delta replacement, I would think an alternate for the pulley could be sourced from any of several suppliers if you have the mount diameter/method and know apx what ext dia(s) you want and belt type. The covers are another story .... that will likely turn into a scavenger hunt (ebay, web, old machine sites, flea markets) to find one.

- good luck!
