I know its a rickety old drill press so I am not expecting super accuracy, but quite pleased with how it turned out out.

It returns to zero and produces repeatable results for what I want.

How did you make the collar or is it all a bought item?

Either way looks a useful thing, and I plan to add one to my lathe tailstock.

3d printed the collar.

Awesome. A 3D printer is on my shopping list. Which one do you have?

I agree. I've been wanting a 3D Printer for a while, not just for this :)
