I was building a composite railing for a customer that required precision 3/4” holes to receive the powder-coated balusters. I decided to take all of the measurements and make good use of my grandfather’s old machining drill press that had simply been collecting dust in the garage. I built this simple table for the press using scrap 3/4” birch plywood and hardboard glued to the top that created a makeshift T-Track. Took about an hour to assemble and a day to dry.
For the fence, I used toilet T-Bolts sandwiched between two pieces of plywood and wing-nuts. Works great for me. If I had been willing to take the time, I would have bought T-Tracks and made the fence a tad bit higher with a T-Track in it. For now, small clamps on the fence have worked fine when needed. I think I found the plans in an old Wood magazine I had laying around and modified it to fit my needs. The little storage shelf on the bottom is perfect for my Fornster Bits.
