This was my wife's grandfather's drill press. He was quite the wood worker. It was in his basement. My father-in-law inherited it and stored it at my brother-in-law's house, where it rusted up. I had no idea that my father-in-law even had it. He overheard me telling my brother I wanted a drill press and he told me I could have it. It has now been reconditioned and included below are two after and a three before photographs and a photograph of the "badge" with the Sears Roebuck number 103.23621 . My brother gave his kind contribution to the project, which proved invaluable. I also want to thank two members for their help in this endeavor: Brian Kachadurian and Gerald Musson. They quickly and adroitly responded to every inquiry. Thanks guys. I used the manual that can be found on this site for the Dunlap 103.23620. It is, in essence, the same for my machine. The following discussion refers to the part and part number for ease of understanding. The biggest problem I had was with the Spindle (26190) being seized/frozen inside the Splined Sleeve (26617). I tried Blaster and Oil to break it free, but to no avail. I finally had to put the Splined Sleeve (26617) in a vice, heated it with a torch and then started pounding on the top of the Spindle (26190) with a large punch and hammer until the Spindle (26190) finally began to move out of the Splined Sleeve (26617). Once out, the Spindle (26190) was very corroded. Wire brushed the Spindle (26190) and cleaned out the Splined Sleeve (26617). I added a little grease to the Spindle (26190) where it goes into the Splined Sleeve (26617) and it then moved freely inside the Splined Sleeve (26617). I had to replace the two Fibre Washers (26716) that sit on both sides of the Upper Spindle Collar (26130). I installed a new electric cord and switch and have some minor tweaking to do, but she works great.
