I thought I would get a “benchtop” drill press and then just store it under the bench until I needed it. Then I got this little guy and could not believe how heavy it is. Seriously, I’m an EMT, I carry big sick people down flights of stairs for a living. This 12” Jet is freakin heavy…so heavy it was an accident waiting to happen so hence the stand / cabinet.
Simple box with pine banding around a plywood top. Hard part was getting all the ball bearing drawer slides (from Amazon) in correctly. Is there a tutorial on how you are supposed to space and attach multiple drawer slides? I’m pretty sure I didn’t do it the right way and just got lucky that it looks half way decent and is functional.
Casters are from Home Depot. Awesome 3” casters from Everbilt for $8/each.
