Hello

This week I decide to make my drill press table.

It’s very classical but I like it.
The stop block is maintened with a clamp. I haven’t got enough track

The martyr is not centred. It’s square and like this I can turn around it to the four angles and use it a maximum

But now I don’t want to use it because I don’t want to damage it ….........

Thanks for sharing

That’s a great idea about not centering the sacrificial plate! I should’ve done that for my drill press table.

I hear people say the same thing about thier classic cars. But,...I think if you don’t use it, why have it. You made this one….you can make another. BTW,...good job!

It looks pretty clean to me and I bet it will speed your work up. Nice job.

The sacrificial insert on my drill press table remains pristine till today, feels quicker to just add some scrap plywood to support the piece to be drilled instead of cutting another insert hehee, nice work Diggerjack!

Hello

Thanks to all
To FreddyS : I have cut 4 inserts for the future but for my firts holes this afternoon I put a very old piece of plywood to protect my sacrificial insert

All I made must be created for a long long long time because I hate destroy
I hate this consumer society and the disposable product without recycle

Have a nice day

Hi Jacks,

Several good ideas here, particularly the offset sacrificial plate. Nice job, as usual.

Best,

Serge
