Wise Buys: Drill-Press Tables
WOOD magazine plan-built (issue 156, June/July 2004)
I might be a little prejudiced when it comes to this table--because I designed it--but it fulfills all of my needs, and for about half the price of manufactured tables. Two T-track slots in the table accommodate hold-down clamps as well as the fence; a third T-track helps me quickly position and clamp the microadjustable stopblock. The 3"-tall fence gives plenty of vertical support without being in the way of the quill-feed handles. Plus, it telescopes on each end for a maximum length of 48", and the table has replaceable center inserts. You'll invest a few hours making it, but the payoff is worth it.
