Drill Chuck Question?
Not sure if this is allowed, so if inappropriate please remove...
I have a Wen 4210 drill press. I've been using it to polish scroll projects over the past several weeks.
I went to drill some holes with hole saw blades the other day (you may remember the shop vac project with the circle cutting jig), and the chuck kept falling out.
I hammered it back in but after every hole cut, the chuck would fall out.
I was told it might be the bearings, or dirt. I've cleaned the shaft but not the inside. I don't see how bearings could be the problem, but then again I'm not too mechanically inclined.
Does anyone know what else would cause this?
Thanks as always in advance
