Supersimple drill-press table

Most of the auxiliary drill-press tables I’ve seen are unnecessarily complicated to install. This simple slide-on auxiliary table mounts to round or square drill-press tables, and you don’t need to keep installing and removing bolts and nuts. Make the spacers about 116 " narrower than the thickness of the drill-press table. Place the auxiliary table on the drill-press table before installing the cleats, and then tighten the cleat mounting screws just enough to hold it firmly. (Overtightening can distort the table.) To remove the table, simply loosen the rear cleat mounting screws a couple of turns each and slide it off.
