I recently upgraded my ( crappy ) Nutool 12 speed bench mounted drill press for a Delta 17-900 floor standing drillpress. I used a mortice attachment on the old press with a reducing collar to fit the 55mm collar. Without the reducer it would fit a 65mm collar. The collar on my new drill press is 75mm. The photos show how I made the mortice attachment fit my new drill press. The adapter was turned on my wood lathe from 4" diameter industrial nylon. Particular attention had to be made when turning the fit over the drill press quill as this needed to be a perfect fit. Two saw cuts were made across this part of the attachment so the jubalee clip could clamp the attachment to the quill.
