I buy a new drill press because I want to have a second drill press with better capacities

Now I have to make a drill press table but what is for you the better size for the table ?

My new drill press is a fox F12-943

Thanks for your responses

Hi Jack,

I like the versatility of my setup; several sub-table sizes clamped in seconds to the main auxiliary table. Take a look here with all the d├ętails and photos. It may be on LJ as well (can’t remember).

Good luck my friend,

From the model number it seems to be a floor standing model.

This is what I did to mine:

15-16” x 24-28” would be an ideal size. Not too wide so you can still easily manipulate workpieces, not too long so it takes up too much space, yet large enough in both dimensions to handle most everything you may need to drill.

I’ve been meaning to build one for many years- now I have a zillion European hinges to drill so I broke down and bought a Harbor Freight table and fence- with the 25% coupon- it was like $27…. probably couldn’t get the parts for that…
