Design question for the ALLTRADE heavy duty complex drill milling machine part # mm-2 serial # 891967?

Question:

Hi, I recently purchased an ALLTRADE heavy duty complex drill milling machine part # mm-2 serial # 891967, and the chuck is stuck in the mill. I was wondering if there is a set screw or something keeping it in there? There is a slot in the quill to put a drift punch but there is no slot in the chuck (it is full and there is no way of putting a drift punch threw), therefore, I was wondering, how to remove the chuck.  Second, if there is a user manual that I could purchase or an e-version of the user manual for this machine. thank you very much

Answer:

Hello Joey,
Sorry to advise that Alltrade does not manufacture Milling Machines. I'm familiar with Quills as our drill presses have such an apparatus and in order to access the slot, the quill needs to be turned down so that the drift pin can be inserted and struck with a hammer to drive out the arbor, which will contain the chuck. In order to remove the chuck, the arbor can be held in a vise and the chuck can be removed by using a piece of hardwood placed against the upper part of the chuck while being struck with a hammer. Here's hoping the chuck isn't rusted onto the arbor and, if so, you'll need to use some WD40; let stand for an hour, and repeat the hammer version. If the chuck has been gelded onto the arbor, you may not get it off without using heat. As for any manual, there isn’t one that exists.  Here's hoping you find this info helpful and removal of the chuck is possible.

Thanks for asking,

Carl
