This is a drill press table I have made for several customers. It has an x,y table that I made. It also has one turning mechanism for side to side motion and one for front to back. I installed a drill press vice on top of it and I can put the drill bit right where I want it by just adjusting the table. No need to take the piece out and re-setup. This is very useful for metal and woodworking. The drill press vice I installed on top works really well for both. I also installed clamps along the back on both ends for other needs. There is a stop mechanism I can mount to the back fence for making repetitive cuts. I have even done light routing with the drill press and table. Although the rpms are not nearly as high as a router it worked out better than I thought. I am thinking of mounting a rotozip on the drill press to do smaller projects with smaller router bits. I also have a slot in the middle front of the table that I slide a mitre bar in and I hook up my sanding drum to the drill press and I can adjust it and mount wood circles that I cut out and get them rounded out. I also have a vacuum hook-up I made.
