I wanted to replace temporary screws holding perimeter strips to a router table top I’m making. I’m lousy at accurately drilling holes free-hand, so I wanted to use the drill press. The drill press table would lower sufficiently to drill the side holes – but unfortunately – not far enough to drill those in the ends. Conjuring up old memories of Rube Goldberg and his marvelous inventions, I came up with this: Drill press table swung to the rear – a wooden tool box with a piece of MDF for a top, a shop made router fence with the high fence I described in my previous post clamped to it with fence clamps – and the whole assembly clamped to the drill press stand. Hey – if it works, it works!
