Direct video link - https://youtu.be/MPjCGaHYZRI


In this video I take a 20-year-old £50 / $60 #drill #press and give it a bit of a makeover with a new #table and fence, all made from whatever I have to hand. Enjoy!

Offsetting the square insert from the drill centre means that you can use the same insert 8 times!

It's sacrificial - one sacrifice is enough! 😂 As I show in the vid, a large part of it is to be able to centre the table after adjusting the height - this table isn't cranked, so it tends to shift position when altered, and been able to centre it with the drill bit is a really easy solution. 👍

Great little table. I wish there was a good source for the color MDF here in the states. I would love to use it but haven’t had good luck in finding it here. Thanks for a great video you’ve inspired me to replace the piece of plywood on my drill press that I’ve been using for 25 or more years with a clamped board for a fence. Mines a radial press so I may do a few things different. I think pillar drill makes better sense so sorry for the US terms😃

You make it look too easy - I'd still be at the paper and pencil stage - probably at the 'where did I put those damn pencils' stage to be honest.

Nice job - I will look forward to seeing it used.
