Asymmetrical Drill Press Table
I wanted to make a drill press table for my benchtop drill press. It had to be a small table due to the space available around my drill press. I wanted easy access to the column height handle which dictated the asymmetrical design.
I cut a 17 arc for the fence. Anchoring the fence behind the drill press column caused an angle allowing access to the platen height handle. I added a 3 cutout for sacrificial blocks and I added a couple ¾ holes to allow the use of a hold down.
On the bottom I mounted tabs shaped to fit the slots in the drill press platen and I added platen clamps.
The table design is indexed to the column so sliding the table to the column then, rotate the table until the tabs find the platen slots. The tabs fit snug but I figure they will wear, then Ill use the platen clamps.
I know how to make sawdust.
