hello,
I recently got a Dumore 37-041 with a albrecht chuck in VG condition.
there's no play in the bearings left to right, but the inner spindle has play up and down in the spindle sleeve.
I don't know if this normal for this drill to reduce start up pressure on small drill bits to avoid walking and breakage or something is not holding one of the bearing in the spindle sleeve correctly.
I'd like some input before I dismantle the drill. Otherwise everything is smooth and tight with average light wear for it's age.
I'm going to call dumore to see if they still have to parts and owners manuals, but if anyone has them, I'd like to get a copy.
thanks,
michael

I don't know anything about the Dumore drill press, but I do know that you should be prepared for sticker shock when seeking Dumore pricing...
