Drill Press Stand

Postby Malc2098 » 05 Sep 2018, 18:19

Unashamedly taken from the internet, a stand/cabinet to take my little delta drill press and a little bench grinder. Included in the design are 5 drawers.

This time it's nice to let someone else work out the cutting list.

So, some ply arrived this morning. I used the aldidle tracksaw to cut it about in half (according to the cutting list)

And then rattled it through the iTech. The design uses pocket screw construction.

that's nice plywood, where did you get it from?
I like the design to, I might have to do something similar but wider for my drill press and morticer.

The 6mm is really nicely figured. The 18mm is B/BB so has a couple of blemishes on one side.

The plywood came from https://www.aspaving.co.uk. They set me up with a cash account at the start of my build and I've used them for all the basic stuff ever since. I ring them up or email them, most times they have delivered the next day, and sometimes, later the same day.

Thanks, Andy.

The cheapest that Homebase would sell.

(That reminds me of the Lion and Albert, 'a stick wi' 'orse's 'ead 'andle, the finest that Woolworths would sell') :D

Nice cabinet but there is something wrong with those pictures.

How did you cut/drill etc all that and not make any mess at all.

You sure you really made it?

Very nice job, I like the handles. It would never support my old British made Progress number one though, it weighs two or three times most modern hobby drills! :lol:

Thanks, Bob.

'Snazzy', I like that. But as Homebase is shutting down a load of its stores, I might lose my local supplier.

Thanks, Woody. They were the cheapest handles I could find in a hurry.

Yes, I know it's a delicate little flower, but I bought a modern keyed chuck and that's improved it.

Thanks, Effy.

Ha! I suppose I'll have to promote Homebase no for cheap, snazzy, handles!

Well......this sawdust thingy. I've got the big iTech plugged into the table saw, I've got the Aldi plugged into the Kapex and I use it by hand for pocket hole and other drilling.

And like my old woodwork teacher told me, sweep up at the end of every day, and as the free floor space only comes to a couple or so square metres, that doesn't take look and when I've got a decent pile I let the iTech suck it!

Thanks, Roger.

No you haven't seen my bike! The engine, gearbox and spares are in two wheel barrows and the rolling frame is covered in tarpaulins and dust. Not a bit of chrome in site!

Here's one I took earlier!
