Convert Drill Press Insert to Round


Recommended Posts

Nice Gee-Dub

I wrote an article about this about 2 years ago, and it is somewhere on this forum. There is a copy on my website now, having added a page on power tools and machines a few months back ... Tools and Machinery/BuildingADrillPressTable.html

Don't forget, the circle needs to be offset from the centre of the drill bit to maximise use ...

Heres an example


Theres also machines that use a rectangular stick that gets slid sideways in a groove as the surface gets used up. Those may be easier to adapt to as you can make those sticks easily.
