Drill press turning
Making a plane knob on the drill press challenge.
Last week I needed a knob for a fence I was making for my no. 3 and 4 planes, and was ready to go to the lathe.
- But decided to challenge myself by making it on the drill press, with the simplest means I could find (yes I’m a child).
I also took pictures as I went along so I could share it with those who don’t have a lathe.
You can see the project and tutorial on the Drill press turning (making a plane knob) Blog
Geminiguy made a DIY chunk that can be used as well.
I hope this can bring some old planes back to life or be used to make a fence for your plane,
