This was my July 4 project. I made the fence for my 18-900l delta drill press. I used scrap 11/4” X 32” long hard maple, 1/4” plywood and 3/4” plywood.

That’s one thing I really like about the 18-900, and another reason I want one so badly; the table. It’s one of the nicest dp tables that come stock and actually has the woodworker in mind.

Great job on the fence.
Should you need a shorter/narrower fence. a 1×1 or 1×2 on laid flat makes a great fence.
