« Part 1: My first rolling cart Part 2 of My Shop Projects series Part 3: PVC Shop Wall »

Got my drill press.

It’s much larger than I thought it would be, but it is what it is…

First the box

Layout Parts

More Parts

Put the stand together

I kept looking for the square table from the instructions… iT’S ROUND!!! Not sure I like that but we’ll see. Took awhile to get the table on – terrible instructions – you have to insert the rail into the table holder before sliding it over the stand shaft

Ok, got the head on

Got the clamp on

Built a 2nd rolling cart, secured the drill and my grinder to the cart – getting more out of existing real estate :)

Added some duct for dust control – had it laying around

So, there’s my new drill – much better than the Wen I had, but more expensive also. Hopefully, it will work out better than the Wen did.

-- They said I could be anything... So I became Sarcastic! They also said making drawers is easy... I think they lied :(
