« Part 42: A tool stand that rotates like a ferris wheel? Oh no he did-n't!!! Part 43 of The Stumpy Nubs Workshop series Part 44: The amazing box joint machine version 2.0- Better than ever? »

The amazing X-Y Sliding drill press table might be great, but for some people it’s just too BIG! So we set out to make a light weight, yet feature packed new one. It has storage for drill bits, built in dust collection and a unique, quick release, T-style fence. MEANWHILE- Mustache mike stops by with a FREE jig plan and a great shop tip- that and more on the latest episode of Blue Collar Woodworking!

We can't embed videos on Lumberjocks right now, so you'll have to go watch it here. Enjoy! Then come back and leave a comment so we know what you think!

Plays for me. Are you sitting in front of your computer screen or the microwave oven? Try mashing all the keys with your palm until it works… :)

Works fine for me, and I’m on my phone. Go figure.

Stumpy, this drill press table looks a lot more practical to me than its big brother. Seeing it wobble as it moved back and forth made me wonder if the shifting table would affect the accuracy of the drill press itself. I like the idea of building dust collection into the fence, and I’m kinda disappointed that we didn’t get to see how well it works on video. Maybe an update in the next episode?

Still love the show. Keep it up.

The page & video loaded….
I do like the “compactness” of this table.
Much more fitting for my bench top DP (with no crank for height adjustment).

The spring loaded sanding block looked intriguing….
I’ll have to check it out, in more detail, later.

Thanks, for another installment of fine info-tangent!!!

It is working on the left coast right now! Looks good Stumpy.

Stumpy I do like the downed size.
I have a very tiny press and this one is nice.
Excellent cinematography.

SUPER! I am in need of something sililar. Very impressed with the idea of dust collection, but with ZCI how do the big curls from a forstner bit get drawn down? I know the hole is the same size but until the bit passes thru theres no draft to speal of. But the replaceable inserts are excellent and I’ll make some today and open the insert area, as I’m currently just using a backer board to prevent tear out.

“And that’s what we’re gonna do this time on . . . . . “

Regarding the introduction, will this be the norm ?

Throughout “season 2” I’ve been testing out different things. Some have already been discarded, others, like the lengthened introduction, are still being tweaked. I think some people want to know exactly what the next few minutes will contain, so I am considering giving a full rundown at the beginning so they can skip ahead to exactly the part they want to see.

The sketching of the project is a new thing on this episode too. I’ll try it out for another episode or two and see how people like it.

I also introduced a new camera (mounted on my head) to record build footage. People have been asking form more “actual woodworking” for a while now. I’m not sure about that camera yet. It was very expensive and the footage doesn’t seem to be what I had hoped.

So, Stumpy, why does the lumberjocks post title say episode #43, while the video says #40. I’m confused. Please explain.

Because LumberJocks lies, Russ.

...Actually, because that is the number of posts, not episodes. There were a couple of non BCWW episodes posted a year or two ago. I can’t control that number.
