"Cheat sheet" meets cookie sheet
I've used the WOOD magazine "Drill Press Speed Chart" (woodmagazine.com/charts) for years, trying to keep it taped up on the perforated hardboard behind my drill press, but it kept falling off. To prevent that, I grabbed an old cookie sheet from the kitchen, taped the chart to the metal, and hung it on a hook.
Then, taking it a step further, I made an additional chart of my drill press speed settings, added it to the sheet, and stuck on a magnet to identify the current speed setting. Now I know whether I need to open my drill press case to change its speed.
