drill press

  1. Design & Plans
    Hello! I’m hanging a large floating shelf over my TV using threaded rod for my brackets. I ordered some 1/2” diameter rod the other day assuming that I’d be working with 1” thick material but the best I could find at the hardware store was an edge glued oak panel only 3/4” thick. (I don’t have...

    I just bought a JET JWDP-12, 12" DRILL PRESS from Rockler that they say ships directly from the manufacturer. I have a project I'm holding on waiting for it, so naturally anxious to get it. Does anyone know where they ship from? TIA

    I'm restoring a floor model Rockwell drill press model 1124 which i am pretty sure its almost identical to the 15-081. This was a barnyard machine. Covered in grime and rust, and not taken care of well, at all. The table was broken and bolted to a janky weld up job, among other half-a**...

    I'm restoring a floor model Rockwell drill press model 1124 (pretty sure its almost identical to the 15-081, but im not sure, cant find a manual for it). Before I get started, I'd like to get an idea of what I'll need to order so I'll have it ready to go. Below is a picture of the chuck. Its...

    Hello, I inherited a craftsman floor drill press model # 113.213811 and seems to be running pretty loud and rough. There is a little wobble at the chuck but I'm not sure if it's the spindle or not. I plan on replacing the chuck, the quill bearings, the pulley bearing, and the belt with a link...

    You can only put up with the little Harbor Freight $50 drill press for so long.... About a month ago I was jumping around on the normal classifieds (Craigslist / Facebook Marketplace / etc ) and this caught my attention. Didn't know much about it, but I knew it was old, I knew it was heavy...

    I've never owned a drill press before, but I was able to snag a nice Grizzly G1200 last weekend. Seems to run perfectly. My question is what is the proper distance between the top of the board I'm going to drill and the tip of the bit? I know it has to be far enough away to clear the board of...

    Hello, my father passed away recently, and my family is cleaning out our big storage unit. We need to get rid of these power tools, and I would like to know if they are things that I can post on Craigslist for a price or just give away. I'm sorry for the picture quality. I wasn't the one who...

    Our local Sears is going out of business and they have the floor model of their $379 3/4 HP 15" drill press marked down to $210. It seems like a pretty good deal and I'm kind of on the fence about buying it. I know there are other drills available that might be a bit better, like the 1 HP Porter...

    Hey guys, So I am in the market looking for a decent drill press for all my precision drilling needs. I found this one here, which has rave reviews but it only takes up to a 1/2" bit. My question is, does anyone have experience with a drill chuck adapter? Do they work relatively well with...

    My husband bought a new drill press and I want to get him a very good set of Metal and/or Wood drill bits. Perhaps the best all purpose. I want fractional, number, and letter; the full fold out cased set. Does anyone have a recommendation? What brand(s) are the best? Titanium coated? Carbide...

    Hello all, I'm new to the forum and am excited about the depth of knowledge and experience here. I built this beautiful drill press table for wood working. It doesn't have everything, but suits my needs perfectly. I used some leftover cherry and hard maple. Insert is paperstone... fence...

    :smile:I am from Knoxville, TN and have inherited a shop full of woodworking tools from my grandfather who was a master carpenter. I have had them stored for the last year in the basement of my house on my farm. However, I have to sell that property now and need to sell the tools/equipment. I...

    Howdy, I just bought a Harbor Freight 20" floor standing "production" drill press. After making room for it and bolting it to my concrete floor, I immediately set to work doing some metal drilling that I've been putting off for 6 months due to lack of a drill press. I used oil, so the press's...

    Trying a new years resolution of buying the tool I'd like first instead of spending more money and time buying cheap and working my way up. Will take longer to buy tools but instead of buying stuff that will get (more less) thrown out, buying stuff that can get passed on to children's children...

    I like to keep my bench completely clear. I'm always getting out my bench grinder and my bench vice, securing them to the bench, using them, unsecuring them and putting them away. I also have some t-tracks on my bench and use a universal fence on them. I spend more time switching between those...

    I'm researching Drill Presses and key points of a product that are important to Drill Press users and gathering my information to create a simple standard survey (on a scale 1 to 10 how important is...). I think the best way to create an accurate and useful survey is to talk to those that are...
