A WORKSTATION FOR MY DRILL PRESS
« on: June 29, 2021, 01:20:25 AM »
This is not metal work but dealing with the brown stuff, but though some may be interested in the modification iI did  to my drill press. The base has wheels to move the drill press and jacking screws to level it in place. The station is made to roll out of the drill press and moved if longer column work is required. Drawers make placing items most used handy and two cubicle bends are made for additional storage on each side. i have varies photos and the one in its final resting place. I hope you enjoyed it.

Regards Don

Fanyastic use of space brothah.   The organization plan is the thing that takes the longest.
