Start one project and sidetracked to another

Posted By on August 6, 2017

While drilling a couple of precision holes, I notice the relatively new larger drill press table extension wiggled out of position if it was bumped. The problem was that it was designed to clamp to the small steel table that comes with most tabletop and floor stand drill presses.

To correct I added a scrap round piece of plywood with a couple 5/16″ carriage bolts with their domed head ground flatter to the steel drill press table and removed the clamping feet from the bolt that came with the expanded table. After tight tolerance drilling, the thumbwheel nuts and washer were bolted to the new round plywood. Perfect … it is rock solid now.
