I thought you were the author...Maybe the author should... :)
Maybe you should correct the title, more people could find it useful!
I think the most important thing for me with tool holders is that I can put the tool back quickly. The screwdriver holder made me want to comment that. If you ever feel that it takes half a second too long to put it back, drill, and glue a tiny magnet in the end, where the screwdriver is supposed to be... If you accidentally move them, they will also stay in place, thought this might not be an issue for you because your workbench isn't under them.This I'ble should come pretty handy, as I'm just about to start making a small, outdoor woodworking cabinet, and need tool storage ideas! :)

The video is too short by about 0.2 seconds to add an end card, if that explains the black ending of the video...
Do you realize this Instructable contains the words DITRA-HEAT 54 times?I would have gone crazy typing it!:)

And again Grammarly doesn't fix my typos...
Send an exmail, eplaining the bug to firstname.lastname@example.orgThey can't fix the problem if they don't know what it is!
The site developers might not see it from here. If you want the issue to be fixed as soon as possible, send an email.
Never heard of that before. Will keep it in mind for upcoming projects!
I was just buying drill bits yesterday, and understood how I can't live without my caliper.Great emergency alternmative!
Thanks! Good luck to you too with CUBEX!

I need something like this NOW!Great job!
(Right now, yes)They're looking for excellently documented projects, along with really good thumbnails - https://www.instructables.com/community/Featuring-...
Do they have to be Neodymium? Big ceramic magnets can be salvaged from speakers.How many do you need?
How about an adjustable hole saw?
It takes so many hours to make an Instructable, and then you look back 1 day later and say to yourself "Wow. "I could have done all of this in 15 minutes."Been there close to 100 times ;)
Probably not, unless someone who features I'bles see it, and decides to feature it on the homepage...
Improve the thumbnail! - the background looks good, but I would take the picture from above, with the safe maybe open (not all the way), and with more light. Maybe even a GIF!Can you add more information to the title too?
I don't know if it's better (might be too big). I would take some time to take several pictures from several different angles. Can you try this?: https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-a-Pur...
So maybe very, very thin wood!
I've made something like this a few years ago, without a lot of success. The drill bit itself isn't really sharp, so you have to apply a lot of force, but when you do that, the motor bogs down.If it melts the plastic, it might work, though.
Teflon tape, the kind that's used for plumbing? Wouldn't that produce a lot of friction? These magnets are EXTREMELY strong, I wasn't able to separate them, no matter what I did. I'd probably still need some kind of spacer. I think that if the teeth of the saw touched the tape, I'd have to replace it again, and again, and again...A few people commented on the first version that I should've carved a hole in the wood, but I think that what I did here is way better. It's a flat surface, and pulls the saw with just enough force so it doesn't move side to side, but doesn't hold onto it too tightly.Very pleased with the final result. :)
Something like the UHMW plastic that was used here should work well, but it costs $50! Why would someone pay so much for that!?These cheap, thin plastic cutting boards might work well. I have to try them!
I uploaded V2.0: https://www.instructables.com/id/Ultimate-Woodwork...
I don't think so... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KO25JYAaJC0
You should share the design on thingiverse!
Glad you liked it! :)

I wish I had HF where I live...
UPDATE: 1. I removed the spacer/shim from between the column and the base, since it made the column wobble a bit. I put two thin pieces of plastic in the drill holder clamp instead.2. Both of the wooden spacers that I used are for increasing the depth of the throat. See? Terminology isn't my thing!I know bold makes it harder to read, but more people will read it this way...
Well, it's made in Germany, so... It has to work perfectly and look new even after 100 years!
This one is pretty nice too: http://free-marine.com/yoon/wooden-drill-press/There are several really cool ones here too, on Instructables.
If you built your own drill press, what special features wood ⁽ˢᵒʳʳʸ, ᴵ ᶜᵒᵘᶫᵈᶰ'ᵗ ʳᵉˢᶦˢᵗ⁾ you add?
Thanks. You can make them out of wood too!
Makes sense. Thanks.
Or a transformer: https://www.instructables.com/id/WAVE-the-Ultimate...:)
I think I understand that... I think.I used the table leg because I didn't have the right sized square tubing. I don't think it matters that much...
A fan won't help enough. You should add a fairly big heatsink, and a fan if needed.
How about a soldering gun? Could be better...
Thanks, glad you liked it!
The other thing is the tolerances of woodworking you may work to, and find acceptable, are different from anothers.If you make this and expect that it will not be off, and drill a 90.1° degree hole, the problem isn't with the Instructable. This drill press if for DIYers, not professionals - does that need a disclaimer too?!People that do not understand that this drill press isn't perfect shouldn't use the power tools that were used for this project, sorry. This is not a project for beginners. This I'ble will be removed once my I'ble on my homemade wooden vise will be removed because it doesn't give 3 tons of clamping pressure.Define perfect please.
Side to side, in the part that holds the drill (drill holder/drill clamp)?I did have a bit of wiggle, but I've been told that I can clamp it even harder than what I already did (I was scared to do it). That should help, but I still want to add some aligning rods so the drill won't move at all...The side to side movement of the cube was fixed at step 11.
True! :)jarabito suggested that this could be used as a camera holder. I bet it could be used for many more things too!
I understand you... :)Buy cheap buy twice. Buy more expensive and regret it (if it doesn't get lost)Don't forget to share pictures! The free premium membership is stil available!
Fastcap CA glue, I think: http://www.fastcap.com/estore/pc/2P-10-Adhesive-c4...
Thanks! I really appreciate it!
I'm currently using a stapler as a laptop stand (quick improvisation for an upcoming I'ble project :), and opened it and found a tension spring inside, but it's really small.THIS GUY BOUGHT 1500 STAPLERS ON EBAY. BUT WHY?
Hey Austin, I appreciate the time you took into writing your comment. Anything that doesn't work can be upgraded, right? This was a great project, and is better than what I had before. If I ever find a drill press for cheap, I will be very happy to buy it. I wish I had a "real" one! :)I still haven't had the chance to use it enough to say what works well, and what doesn't. Are there any obvious tips for improving the drill press?Thanks.
That's a nice idea - it would be like a milling machine!I think one of those chairs that move up and down when your turn them (piano swivel chair?) would be even better, though I've been wanting to find one and turn it into a vise!Will keep that in mind - thanks!
This I'ble gives me this idea: take a metal rod, grind the tip down sao it looks like the tip of this hole punch thingy, and then connect it somehow to locking pliers.Tadaa! :)
You could use a small container for a hammer or tools like that. I like using rods that I salvage out of CD ROMS,but this is pretty similar...
Beautiful! I love the color!
