If you are anything like me, and own a drill press which uses the “two nut” method for adjusting the depth stop, then I have no doubt in my mind you are fed up with trying to set and adjust the thing. When depth is important, it becomes very frustrating, very quickly. I looked for a better solution to purchase, but couldn’t find much. Decided to do some searching, thinking, and make something. Disclaimer, this is not my original idea, I saw similar online at some point, so this is simply my variation of it.
This is a prototype that I made with scrap wood and parts I had already on hand. I plan to make a more refined version, with a harder wood (probably Hickory) and a shorter eye bolt, or possibly even a star knob if I am feeling crazy ;)
Much better so far, hopefully it helps one of you out there.
