Hello Instructables, I've recently purchased a new bench top drill press. After unboxing it and setting it up I noticed it didn't have a spot for the chuck wrench, so I created my own.

Step 1: Materials Needed

Picture of Materials Needed
  • Drill Press
  • Magnet ( I got mine from old hard drives.)
  • 5 minute epoxy
  • Mixing utensil ( I used a Q-tip.)
  • Scrap piece of wood to mix the epoxy on.

I use a broken magnet from a speaker to hold my chuck to my milling machine when I am not using it. I've been doing it for years. So far I have never known the chuck to fall off of the magnet. So it works here.

I have mine on one of those retractable key chains (heavy duty ones with a chain). Took the belt clip off and bolted it to the top of the drill press. Pull it out, use it, and it rewinds back out of the way.
