CYC,

Nice looking drill press table. I see you made the table wrap around the column so the fence can slide back as far as the column - very sensible! I did not do this with my own set-up and the usabale area of the table surface is reduced considerably.

Yes Chris, this is critical to maximise the working space on the table. I must give credits to Neil (the irish one) who paved the way and made me not forget about this important detail. Thanks again Neil :wink:

You will see that I had to nodge the table on the right of the column as well as use 2 layers of 18mm plywood on the foot (the base that is bolted to drill press' steel base) to allow the height adjustment swivel to swing free!
