Multi tool stand

This stand holds three machines. My disc sander, worksharp sharpener and small drill press (used to be cheap mortiser). It was designed to hold all my drill bits in the drawers with wood storage in the bottom.

The old mortiser turned drill press is for drilling small pieces and countersinking. Works better for that than it ever did as a mortiser. I now only use my slot mortiser for that task. I cut the bracket off that was designed to hold the square chisels. Of course I didn’t need to. After cutting it off I found the extended shaft with drill chuck attached in a drawer in my tool chest.

The drill bits flip up for easy removal and replacement. All the small holders are removable so if I ever want just a drawer then I just take them out.

I own that same mortiser, given to me by someone who didn’t want to bother fixing it. Bits keep falling out, the chuck won’t tighten enough to hold them. I haven’t decided whether to replace the chuck or scrap it and reuse the motor for something else.

Rick. I say replace chuck and use it in same manner as I do. It drills nice straight holes and is perfect for small parts. Plus it can be left setup and you don’t have to constanly replace bits in your regular drill press. Build yourself a slot mortiser (designed by Mathias Wandel at if you want to make mortise and tenon furniture. I love that machine.

Thanks for the comments.

Sean, That is a great way to organize your drill accessories. This is added to my favorites and hopefully I can fins some time to do something similar. My one large drawer just is not cutting it these days.

Thanks for sharing.
