I don’t know how long it’s been this way but the quill return spring is broken or disengaged. I did not take it apart to fix it.
Oh. The Drill press. That spring is a real asshole to replace. Lemme see if I still have the part link from last time I replaced that…

Oh shoots, yup. Saw that a few days ago, might have remembered without a reminder if it wasn’t 110° in there and I hadn’t been working all day.
Adding to the list.
Fixed it! Thanks for the awesome assist Doug!
Works good, used it today.
