    Vehicle Key Safe

    Using 2x resealable bags would be pretty certain of keeping out the moisture. As far as the whole "looking under cars in the heat... blah blah" beleive me that would not deter a determined car thief if he thought he was going to score, and seeing something hanging down underneath a car in an easily accessible spot that quite obviously isn't normally there, can be seen from several cars away no problem - that is a professional opinion.While coments are normally for constructive criticism, I made my post with the obvious intent of pointing out some extremely serious flaws with this design - there are better ways and better designed "key safes" than this idea which can be used to temporarily store you car keys while you go surf if you resolutely intend to leave the key...

    Laminated 2X4 Work Tables

    Good table, only thing I would point out that this design is no good for using it as a metal / woodworking bench as the cantelevered top is not fully supported, those diagonal braces are not enough if you were to use this design for that kind of use. There is a reason why a workbench has a leg on each corner and braces in between.

A drillpress is designed to give you the SAME hole, over and over and over again, awake, half asleep, with your eyes closed; the SAME HOLE, same as the last and the next.Do yourself a favor, spend the money on a bench sized drillpress, they don't have to be $$$$$, but don't buy the cheapest one either, the first time you use it, it's a revelation.lol with all the bible references and I'm not even religeous!

I know you might not think it's flexing but it is because your motion of moving the drill will never be 100% vertical, making the base thicker and stronger means this linear (horizontal) application of force can be counteracted and thus not transpose it into your drill hole.Not much you can do to alter the characteristics of the handheld drill and it's bearings, but what you CAN do is make up a double chuck system, salvage 1 preferably metal chuck and mount it to a separate sliding system, and the back rod then goes into the chuck of the drill. The metal chuck will have no bearings inside and thus no off axis travel when under load, and the drill itself with it's bearings will not be able to off axis travel as it's attached to the fixed point chuck. That would also mean technically if you had one of those flexible drill extention snake things you could simply lie the drill on the bench, attach the snake to the mounted chuck on the pole and run that up and down, less weight / stress on the pole = less chance for off axis deflection.(and if you win, I want credit! :) )

    PS - if you think your drillpress is accurate, I'll set you a challenge to replicate what I tried to do FOUR times before going out and buying a drillpress. If it can do it - it'll be something to prove how good your design is (and I'll retract my statement), but honestly? I have great doubts it can.

    Ok you are quiet correct, I have never made one - and I'm not trying to belittle or othewise insult you, but you have made an 'ible for others to follow based on something not tried, tested and proven to be accurate.I realise my reaction may be a little OTT, but if you've had my experiences of one of these kinds of "drill press" you'd understand.The other thing is the tolerances of woodworking you may work to, and find acceptable, are different from anothers.The stark and unfortunate truth of woodworking, is that if you wish to work to any degree of accuracy = less headaches and problems, you must first start by using a tool that has THE BEST accuracy you can produce, and from then on any inaccuracies introduced from human interaction are thus smaller.Have you ever used a stra...

I have and this is the same, if you start out "not straight / square" anything after that will compound the issue further and further, the more you use it on the one project. I have been on the wrong end of this so often I'm paranoid about it now, and you know what? Since I upgraded my tools, and not with anything costing $$$$$ either, when I make a box now it's square, the sides all meet with minimal gaps and there's no time / money wasted making alterations.Using a tool you KNOW isn't accurate is ensuring you'll have problems down the road.At the very least add some sort of disclaimer that this is only meant for the most mundane of drilling tasks where perfect accuracy isn't required.

    I guess we can't blame Kimotori for his mentality - he's most likely Japanese and all they know is compliance and "rules" - not all bad to be fair to them, their manufacturing is world class, but any deviation from "the rules" is treated as an anathema (unless accompanied with Sake), that's why they have so little international cultural integration, to mean they have an EXTREMELY small amount of non Japanese living there as a life choice other than for work. They have a saying; "the nail that sticks out, gets the hammer".

    How was my comment racist? The Japanese ARE like that, they DO live their entire lives based around complicated sets of rules both socially and in their working lives that most non Japanese wouldn't be able to grasp (for example in speech they use a different term for a Japanese person living and working in Japan and those who are currently or have lived and worked overseas - the connotation being they they have somehow become "tainted" by westerners, this happens everyday, everywhere). I've lived and worked there - I personally witnessed several of my "pupils" call me Gaijin (instead of Gaikokujin the more polite term for "foreign person"), behind my back even though I was trying to teach them something to enrich their lives and make it easier for them to ...

He is not required to convert for you in the posting rules (just as tens of thousands of other 'ibles written by americans have not either), he has merely taken the time to show you his version of this 'ible that has been shown before; and for his trouble you and others have left negative comments as if he owes you something and should change his 'ible at your request - and I repeat; HE DOES NOT!!!He used Imperial because that's what he is familar with, and you and the others have absolutely no rights to request ... nay, DEMAND, anything else from him.If you wrote an 'ible in your native language I'd look at the pictures, and try to figure out what was going on, but under no circumstances would I request you change your standard method just to suit me or anyone else, because that is sheer arrogance of the kind that starts wars, and you sir are full of it.So ARDY - transpose 1 letter to the right!Oh and the only types of rulers or other measuring devices that have greater than millimeter or 64th splits are for precision work like engineering or cabinet making - you won't find them on a DIY standard tape measure - (I know because I've looked for one), which is all he used and all that was needed to proceed; thus in that scenario, inches and its sub divides are more accurate.Imperial is not "unnecessarily complicated" you and the rest just don't understand it - why do we still have yards / furlongs / stones and bunch of other units of measurements regularly used in the UK (a metric country) that are also not ruled by base 10? Yeah, can't answer that can you. (the answer is: "because they are still valid units")Why not just say "thanks for the i'ble" and move on with your life? I'm guessing because you and the person who commented about the SI "requirement", even though there's no such thing for posting an 'ible, like to feel important and that your word has more prominence and must be thus obeyed because there are more metric users than Imperial, when in reality, in this scenario, your word has as much clout as a fart in a hurricane.Yours and the other guys comment is exactly the same type of bigoted poppycock (look up the original dutch meaning as that's how I'm using it) "why don't you learn to speak / read english" whenever a none native speaker writes in very broken english in a multiplayer game, and just as arrogant.

    Inches is valid - and the usual sytem of measurement for the USA - and the USA is NOT the only country to use them, so get used to it or, y'know, learn how to convert.PLUS, inches is actually MORE ACCURATE for everyday woodworking (which I do), because 64th's are smaller than milllimeters. Metric was introduced to use base 10 same as normal numbers for SIMPLICITY (for simple people) NOT accuracy.

    Yes the legs could be filled with quick set concrete, but you would then either need to drill and use rawl plugs to set the legs to the base / top, (which actually have LESS strength when used vertically) set wooden dowels into the concrete to screw into or still use wood blocks both ends to screw into, which IMHO sounds like more work esp as the legs are little more than pressed hardboard and I've no idea how they would react to being soaked full of water.All in all considered, I'd avoid it.

    Great work, but if I may also add that not only should you not wear gloves for a belt sander, but you should not wear gloves for any moving powertool; sanders, routers drills, angle grinders - basically anything that can snag and bring your fingers onto a flesh damaging surface, about the only safe thing would be welding because of spatter.I'm tempted to make one that would also function as a backbrace (I work in construction) and suspenders to hold my trousers up!
