Hold down clamps!
This story are based on a real bench drillpress, all you see are reality, and all at your own risk…
So time for the last part for now, the hold down or hold fast clamps.
My solution are quick and dirty…
Two china clamps 2,5$, some work.
First file of the little metalpiece, that makes sure the clamp cant part in two.
(It’s at the end of the long silver arm).
Then slide it of.
Bore a hole thrugh, that fits, a bolt for your fence.
Make the mounting, mine are for T-track.
And now ready to hold.
Version two, is simply to use the spurs for the fence, and then clamp through these, now you are able to put it apart.
It’s probaly not the coolest clamps on the planet, but they work and they are really cheap.
You can see, my original drillpress table post here.
Hope it can be to some inspiration,
