Hello, my name is Mark Blocker. In this segment, we're going to cover how to replace a drill press table. Okay, to replace a drill press table, that's this device located here, maybe you want to upgrade it, or it's damaged for some reason, that information can be found in a owner's manual for the equipment itself. Each one's going to be a little bit different. It can also be gotten online for most of the manufacturers for different models. On this particular one the base assembly; we need to get this shaft free so that the base table can slide off of it. At this end it screws, and at this end the top assembly, the motor, and the gear driven press location is mounted and held down with two Allen set screws up here, so we've got a choice of either unscrewing it from this end, or removin' two set screws and slidin' the base top off. If we try and unscrew it we might damage this pipe by putting pipe thread, or or marring up the surface of it with pliers, so the easiest way is to remove the two Allen screws that hold that in place. Simply slide the head assembly off and lay it to the side. Then, you can remove the base and replace it with a new one. That's how to replace a drill press table.
