I was working on a project that was going to require a lot of repetitive drilling, so I decided to stop that project, and took the time to build a drill press table.
The new top, bolts onto the round table, with ¼” bolts.
I spaced the table up to leave clearance for turning the height adjustment handle.
I decide to use t-bolts for the fence stops. Since I was planning to double up on the thickness of the fence, it was an easy solution to cut some dado slots for the t-bolts.
I also cut vertical slots for the ¼” all thread that was used to clamp the fence on with.
I already had some dovetail clamps, so I used them for clamping downward.
I made a 3” square cutout for a replaceable insert. I cut the opening a little off centered, so I could flip the insert around four times, to have a fresh clean backing board when drilling holes.
I went ahead and made a bunch of extra inserts.
