I just purchased a new floor drill press. It is the Porter Cable from Lowe’s and was one of the best deals in my opinion. It is more than enough machine for my needs.
I used the Woodsmith 3-in-1 plans as inspiration, but made some modifications to work with the material that I had on hand. The casters are off of a Harbor Freight furniture dolly. The knobs I made from some scrap maple. The rest are scrap 2×4s and some really old plywood that was once a workbench in my garage. I never throw away material. Of course, it wasn’t pretty, but some black paint fixed that.
