Drill Powered Table Crank for a Drill Press/Pillar Drill

06-08-2018 11:16 PM by Dan Thomas | 2 comments »

I wanted to build a new drill press table, but the crank on my drill press that raises and lowers the table gets in the way, and I end up having to cut out part of the table. Like this: So I made a crank extension with a right-angle adapter that allows me to use my drill to raise and lower the table: If you want to learn more, check out my YouTube video. Feel free to ask questions, or post comments! Or go directly to the video: https://youtu.be/9kY3fk6Q-kA

My Simple Drill Press Table

01-22-2018 03:05 AM by YesHaveSome | 6 comments »

Since the day I got my drill press I knew I was going to end up building a table for it. Obviously, there are a lot of options out there for how to go about it but I wanted something simple for my first go round. It’s not huge, just 24×14 but it has an adjustable fence with stop block and replaceable zero clearance inserts. The best part was that I built it completely from scraps and hardware I had lying around. The only hiccup along the way was realizing that the crank didn&...

Make your own - shop aids, tools, jigs #2: Drill press table for Wen 4210

07-26-2017 11:48 PM by curliejones | 1 comment »

I bought small bench top drill press a couple months ago to dedicate to “wood only” drilling and with hopes that I could affix a drill press table with fence. I was pleasantly surprised when I unpacked the drill press since there was virtually no measureable runout at the 1/2” bit just outside the chuck, the laser was spot on, and it ran very smoothly and quietly. I had a drill press table that I had recently built but found that I was having to remove and replace it freque...

06-13-2015 04:07 AM by DocSavage45 | 26 comments »

MURPHY’S DRILL PRESS TABLE Built mostly by Murphy, LOL! GRRRRR! On June 4, 2013, I posted “Getting My Tools Are Ready #12 blog, which is where I showed the finished assembly of some of my shop tools, one of which was my floor model 17 inch drill press. The drill press table was designed for working with metal versus wood. At that time, I purchased some hold downs and T tracks to eventually build a joint press table for working with wood.My current focus is milling ...

Yea, I know. DP Tables are like cutting boards around here. Been There, Done That. So, I don’t see any Drill Press Tables that are perfect for me. So I’ll build one. Using all of the ideas I’ve seen on this site. My first draft The fence design will come later. I like the following ideas:3 slots. (2 for the fence and hold downs, and one down the middle for a miter gauge or equivalent item or just more holddown for small parts.)1 cross slot. (S...

12-12-2013 02:46 AM by StumpyNubs | 20 comments »

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. ...

Drill Press Table #1: The Basics

08-17-2013 12:01 AM by RaggedKerf | 1 comment »

For my castle bookcase project, I needed to make a series of 1” holes in a long strip of 1/4” plywood. I figured the easiest way was to use the drill press. To do so efficiently, though, required a fence and table. I’ve been meaning to make one of these for a while, so I figured, now’s the time! It’s very simple. Just a square of 1/2” ply with a little 2” square on the upper left corner to fit on the side of the drill press support pole. The...

Castle Bookcase #12: Crenelations and Glue Up

08-16-2013 10:50 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

A lot of progress today. I decided to skip using the round turret tops because it was proving to be too difficult to get the hardboard and then thin plywood to make the curve. Everything either snapped or would simply disintegrate when soaked with water. Here’s how the center turret looked when cut out of the Sonotube: Not bad, but the tips were frayed and not very strong. Kylie would be sure to destroy them pretty quickly. So how to make them stronger? Well, after thin...

Drill Press Station - Table/Lift/Fence/Vise/Drum Sander

06-16-2013 05:48 PM by steliart | 7 comments »

Drill Press Station – Table/Lift/Fence/Vise/Drum Sander My drill press is a small inexpensive bench top type, and until I get a good floor type one I am trying to get the best out of it. One of the first things I did was to change its old pole with a stainless steel one. Why stainless steel? Well it was the only piece I could find that matched the diameter and you can slide up and down smoother. So the pole got a lift-up of about a foot taller. One of those ikea wire sh...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #24: The most UNIQUE drill press table you've ever seen. Drill, Baby! DRILLLLL!

07-29-2012 07:41 PM by StumpyNubs | 24 comments »

Some homemade jigs just have to be called what they are… stinking amazing. This week we come back from our summer break with a vengance. And the drill press is in our sights once again! We’ve completed the “Drill Im-press Table” by adding some unique bit storage, and some attachments that allow you to turn spindles, knobs, even pens without a lathe. Add that to the innovative X-Y sliding table and milling features, downdraft dust collection, and the microadjustable ...
