Hi fellow LJs,

It’s been a while I haven’t posted but my wife has lost the camera so I had to borrow a friend’s !.

Anyway I’ve been busy in the shop and I started by a very needed drill press table. The miter slot came from rockler, the hold down clamp from harbor freight and the square aluminium fence from Mc Master.

I’ve selected to use the same miter slot for the fence and the hold down and so far i do not regret my choice.

Thanks for watching

Nice job! DP tables are such an asset to a shop. I love the one I have at work and will soon be making one for my DP at home. Thanks for posting!

I like it a lot. I need to make a table for my press with t-track too. Right now I just have a piece of ply bigger than the iron table, held on with a c-clamp. How does one attach the wooden table to the iron table? Are you drilling a hole somewhere? Mine is a Delta variable speed and has no holes or grooves?

Nice DP table! Don’t worry about sharing the T track for the hold downs and the fence. My table from Grizzly does the same thing… And I bet your fence works better!
