Yet another drill press table based on designs I have seen around. I had a 1.5” piece of particle board that was bolted to the metal (this is an old craftsman machinists drill press) table. This provided a thick solid base to attach everything else to. Features in this design include:
Lots of T track
Moveable fence with track and cam lock down
Hold down clamps
Removable ZCI for clean through holes
An under table shelf for accessories
I have made the insert large enough and centered enough to handle some of my sanding drums meaning i can turn this into a little shaper if need be. Probably the only thing i will add is a flexible dust collection arm at some point. Need to run vacuum across the shop first though.
