    Drill press table

    I wanted a bigger table to give me better use of my DP, so with my usual aversion to spending money, I built thid one, based on one from Bob's Plans. It took about eight hours, and was a nice start to my building season.

    Now I'll have to make some clamps to go with it...

    Nice job, Roger. You're going to enjoy having a larger table on your drill press.

    Yeah, there ya go! A big table with tee-tracks is wonderful. It makes things so much easier and safer.

    I'm a devout believer in hold-downs after one scary incident. With your table and tee-tracks using hold-downs is only a matter of seconds. With most (all?) commercial DP tables it is an aggravation to use them so they don't get used all of the time.

    Good job. Enjoy it.
