[TriEmbed] Pretty Nice Ryobi Drill Press- Needs Repair

Very true John, I turned it off immediately and I don't think the armature touched the field winding.  It turns fine, no scraping, just very stiff, I think one of the bearings just welded itself together- things are centered.  If it is a $10 fix or just a simple bearing, I think an additional 12 pack would be in order- honor system and not mandatory.

I'm not a starving artist anymore and I was secretly happy that it finally broke so I could buy a new-fangled press that I was eyeing on line.  Check out the Nova Viking- link below.

Now if my 2005 Acura MDX would just spin a bearing or blow up, I could spend some more of my hard earned and saved cash.  I inherited the parsimony gene from my depression era dad.  It’s the same reason I couldn't take it to the dump and had to get a least a few beers for it!

I'm sure it can be made serviceable without a ton of work.  I would look at those bearings first as John suggested.

Link to the new rig- smarter than I am.

>From your description, it may in fact be just a bad bearing that could be fixed in the motor. What can happen though is the bearing goes bad and the motor scrapes the windings and ruins those too. Whoever get's it, spin the motor and see if it is scraping or has alot of play. If not , you may get away with less than $20 of bearings. Maybe as low as $10

Good Luck!

To the many thousands (or maybe it was 2), the Ryobi drill press has been spoken for.  If the pickup falls though, I'll repost.

Is this still available?  I'll take it for a 12-pack. (unless there's
someone more starving than I.  I'm just cheap and like to tinker)
