This the best drill press auxiliary table I have seen. It was made by Ronald Walters featured on Woodgears.ca http://woodgears.ca/index.html

Ronald also has two other projects on there, a sweep adaptor and a blade guide

That’s definitely nifty!
I just started my new drill press table this morning too.

He has some great ideas there with the dust collection and lighting.

Cool! Definately some great ideas. Will probably influence the way I make mine.

I took a look at the d.p.t. in the link, and to tell you the truth, I like mine better, plus I have built-in d.c. to my dust collector….Here’s a couple of pixs of it…..I can also use the Rockler hold-downs, too.

Rick thanks for more good ideas. How is yours held down to the table?

gpastor,

The “box” itself is held in place with 4 bolts and washers which go up through the slots in the drill press table, and through the box. They are mounted in the dust collection part of the box, and has 4 wingnuts to hold it in place. I mounted the top on with corner brackets (as you can see in the pixs) in case you have to remove the top for any reason to get to the bolts and nuts. The box has a divider to section off part of it for the drawer and for d.c. Then just drilled a hole in the side to attach the hose to the dust collector….All material is 3/4” Birch plywood. I built it about 10 years ago, and have never removed it…It works great…
