It all started with a picture of a shit bunny. http://www.bridgecitytools.com/blog/2011/12/14/last-call-for-entries-2011-sht-bunny-award/
Laughed a bit, then looked at the rest of the bridge city tool site. I was blown away… that someone one upped Festool in the price/precision niche. Heck, bridge city might be “Festool: Unplugged”.
ANYWAY… incredulous, I was sending youtube videos of their stuff over IM to my sig other, and she wrote back more or less asked “why whould you get a drill press instead of that? It’s smaller, quieter, and fits in a drawer”. Before I started comming up with lots of stuff and replying, I shutup. I have a 1 car garage shop… that the 1 car parks in. Everything is tucked away. There is probably room for one more standing machine, and I’m thinking band saw over drill press.
Could this be a way to sneak in drill press functionality? How much am I losing vs a dedicated benchtop (again, can’t be a big floor model) press costing < $450 bucks (price of dj-1) ?
here’s video of the drill jig:
