Hey guys,
The handle to make my drill press table move snapped off. I tried delta and they said it was discontinued. Anyone know of a place I could get one? Any help would be great and thanks in advance…Dave

Won’t a standard threaded handle work for a replacement?

Are you talking about the crank? I had one broke on a DP I bought on offer up but failed to notice it til I got it home. I can’t remember how I found it but even when a company like Delta says discontinued the part is used on many products. Once I found a hardware vendor that had many to choose from I was able to check the diameter of the shaft that it would attach to and the length that seemed close. I have searched but can’t find it, sorry.

Ereplacementparts claims to have 25 of them in stock. Other places seem to have them as well, like RepairToolParts, MikesTools, Renovo and even Amazon.

Cheers,
Brad
