Sounds interesting - pics plz !shed9":1gesn7kc said:I bought an old Steff / Maggi power feeder for my spindle moulder a few months back but the mounting bracket was just too big to fit comfortably on the spindle bed. I was about to throw it back on Ebay when I realised the power head holder was the same diameter as one of my pillar drill's column.
I mounted the power feed arm with the pillar drill on the edge of the work bench and I now have a rock solid pillar drill with a reach of over 2 foot across the bench. The thing is incredibly stable and have to say I'm surprised I haven't seen it done before. The thing pulls out of the way when not in use and locks solid when needed with adjustability across all planes.
