I mentioned in another thread that this wasn’t my best work. (Please, don’t look at it closely) However, it’s completely functional for my needs. I also designed the vacuum port for my shop vac. Please note that inside the fence is a compartment so air flows only between the two holes and not through the whole fence. The small knobs were also homemade with a forstner bit for the knob grips and a hole bit for cutting out the knob – not anything new but it was new to me.

Plus, I made the entire thing from scrap wood.

When I first started woodworking many years ago, there was no internet or forums . That was a good thing as my early work was rough but functional. You have to work at it to get better. What you did is fine and functional and bet in the future you will improve….just keep learning.

Interesting idea on dust collection for a drill press. Does it work well? I’ve been trying to figure out how to implement something now that I just picked up a new drill press and need to build a table.

For regular twist bits and counter-sink bits, it works great. For forstner bits, not so much. It seems they “throw” the wood a good distance so anything on the side of the bit near the fence is sucked up, but anything on my side of the drill bit comes out and needs cleaned up later. So, not a total success but I figure if it’s at least sucking up the smaller particles, that’s better than nothing.
