    Drill press table

    Did not like the small cast iron table for the drill press, so I made this one.

    Looks good. One suggestion...make inserts half dozen at a time. You will need one in a hurry some time. Don't ask how I know this.

    Good morning
    Rick, Frederick, and Lisa, thank you very much for the comments. Very happy to be a part of SMC.

    Oh and to your suggestion Rick, I currently have four inserts, sounds like a good project to make more, always have some scrap hardwood around.

    Hi Tom
    Thanks. I also have a movable auxiliary fence in addition to the fixed fence.

    Mark,

    That table looks very similar to mine. I am rethinking my movable fence at the moment, and adding a top track so I can use a flip stop.

    I guess it OK to have "13" plates on this site...

    Welcome to the Creek.
    Regards,

    Kris
