Idea Shop 3

9 Drill Press

9 Drill Press

We expanded our benchtop drill press capabilities with this easy-to-make auxiliary table. A simple pedal mechanism, attached to the quill via a bike brake cable, levers, and a brass bar lets you raise and lower the quill and the attached sanding drum for oscillating sanding operations. Attach a vacuum hose to the hollow table for dust-free sanding. And, for regular drilling, just add a solid insert in the table. The drill-press table appeared in issue 96, April 1997.

This one project was responsible forgetting me wholly involved into woodworking. These are the best ever, in fact this whole Idea Shop 3 series is absolutely the best. I still build these every time I add a somewhat stationary tool to my shop.
