So here is my new mobile base for my really old craftsman drill press
I must thank DonH, and Dakotawood for this design.
It is made out of scrap 2X4, plywood, and casters off a harbor freight furniture dolly.
I first saw Dakotawoods version, I liked the mortise storage idea, and he cited DonH for the original design.
Her is a link to that original that I based mine off of. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/39830
He has good photos and instructions on the build.
I covered the base with some 1/2” ply, and added the wood runners to make for a tight fit.
Keeps the top heavy drill press from tipping out of the base, and also makes a nice place to store my
delta mortise machine.
This drill press has a rather large base on it without the added mobile base. Now, the back side of the base has a shelf that is 9” deep. I think I’m going to add some storage for all my bits and accessories.
Thanks For looking,
