Good day

When I had to drill wheels (knobs) and small parts, I used hold-down clamps and other combinations that where “big” on the small wheels…but, no more…

The idea came from other shop-aid that I made for cutting small pieces on the table saw…so, why not on the Drill-Press.

So now, the DP table is clean from all the clamps and hold-downs and here it is…

Best Regards
niki

Niki,

I like this. I am definitely going to make one of these small parts holder jigs!

How about a few dimensions ;^D

Thank You!

Tom, English is not my first language so…when you said “Go niki”...did you mean that I’ll GO from here???...just joking, thank you.

I found that one can cover many dimensions, if you will need something bigger or smaller, it’s just to cut a “V” on another scrap…the sanding paper is not so imported…it’s just that I, probably love everything with sanding paper.

Thanks again
niki

I really like how you went to such an extent to photograph and demo this idea. That was a lot of work. Good job Niki. I’ll definately keep this idea in the back of my head for when the need arises.

-- Bob Vila would be so proud of you!

You do some great stuff, Niki. English might not be your first language but you certainly communicate well. Great jigs.
