You get to make this great dust catcher adapter:
When I built this drill press table I had to included a “dust box” under the top. I soon came to realize however (like many here) that the drill press does not make dust but wood chips. Because the slits in the table top were too small the chips just stay on the table.
After researching many designs and plans here and on the net, I decided to use what I had. My vacuum hose is a 1 1/2”(?) and will not plug into 1.5” PVC BUT does mate over a 1.5” drain pipe (here extension). I was going to use the t-track buy wanted more versatility, so I opted for the rockerler clamp (I was only using one as a TS stop).
Because it is height adjustable, I can aim it at various pieces that I need to drill.
I did drill the holes all the way through the side and added one to the top of the mounting block to I can mount it in various ways and locations, such as for my sander
Well thanks for all the inspirations and now I can keep on making sawdust / wood chips; the clean way :)
