Step 3: Drill Press

Picture of Drill Press
The January 1948 issue of Popular Mechanics carried an article on building your own drill press largely from pipe fittings (p. 216).  Another set of plans for a drill press made with a differential from a Ford Model A automobile can be found in the November, 1953 issue of Popular Mechanics on page 215.

Thanks for this Phil,


One of the earliest things I looked for on Instructables was 'how to build a drill press' - but couldn't find anything for a full-size drill (to say nothing of a cordless).  Now, with this to reference, maybe I can actually get something figured out...
