Topic tags/keywords: drill press table

FYI Harbor Freight has a parking lot sale and their drill press table for woodworking is only $30…

Has T-track, stop blocks and it looks like it may have a replaceable insert…

it looks like a good table, but its going to be a universal fit. which means you will a to fool around with it for a couple of hours to get it to fit right..i would take to money that you would spend on that and purchase some t track and a sheet of mdf and make your own..cost would be about the same and you will have some mdf left over for more projects..just saying..

agree with billthekat. Get the MDF save money. T track are good for only a few applications. ( yes technically you can get a million, but few are practical)

It becomes a pain when you do production. I would never install this on my press. I would rather build one more durable, and to my needs. I recommend the same for anyone.

Thanks. I was looking at the HF table. Will go the DIY route. Have a sink cut-out I can use.

I’ve had the HF version for about 3 years now. I would buy it again. It has done every thing I have asked of it and it still looks as good as the day I bought it. Rand

The regular price on that table is $29.99, so $30.00 isn’t much of a sale…

I had a particle board DP table. Not worth using, but it did donate some good T Track, thread inserts and such… Go the DIY route if you can manage it…

I thought I would try it. Parts missing so I’m taking it back. See my other thread on HF. Will stick to DIY as I previously stated.
