A drill press is a simple, one-job tool, right? Some might even call it “boring.” But as is often the case with tools, many tinkering minds have come up with clever ways to use this humble shop staple. Here’s how to use your drill press to its full potential.
Hello friends. I gave up the drill press I had. I made a new drill press for myself. You can see how I build it in this video. It is a very beautiful column drill. It is possible to drill even 40cm high pieces. It is possible to make full 90 degree holes. You can also drill holes with adjustable height.
Building a table and fence for your drill press makes it easier and safer to support a large workpiece. But the auxiliary table can get in the way of the height adjustment crank. This table gives you easier access with some clever hardware solutions.
