Homemade drillpress

I'm glad you mention those magazines, my dad had a Time-life subscription, and I do remember seeing in one of those books a few pages dedicated to homemade tool fixtures, I was just flipping some pages but can't find the one I'm describing. <br>Time to do some old school reading :) it is only 12 of them wood related. <br>Good stuff. <br>Greetings from Mexico.
I like seeing people build their own bench/stationary tools. Great job!
Thank you! At first I underestimated the time to build it, thought it was going to be a one day project, I was wrong it took me 4 / 5 hrs days, but it is worth every minute. <br>I have used it half a dozen times with different accessories and I'm loving it. <br>
It's worth the effort if you have the time. I remember when Fine Woodworking Magazine first began publishing, they used to feature shop-built tools. Sort of like Popular Mechanics did 100 years ago.<br><br>FWW did an article on a shop-built 8&quot; jointer. It was a huge beast and made mostly from MDF. Nowadays, there aren't many people building big woodworking machinery. The odd sander or small lathe, maybe.<br><br>The home machinists are the ones that are building big machines ;-)
