    "Well, I'm not gonna build another drill press table…"
    Well, not for another 7 years, at least.

    instead of cutting the replacement inserts at an angle that you have to remember, or cutting a whole bunch of inserts at once, just make normal vertical cuts and hold the insert in place with 2-sided tape.

    I really like your design because it's probably one of the fastest easiest to build designs that I've seen on Youtube. There are some wonderful drill press table designs on Youtube, and I applaud the designers and builders, but all of them require more time and materials to build than yours without really providing greater benefits. Bravo.

    I finally made this table for my drill press and it's a godsend. Thanks for this, perhaps your most useful video for me personally so far. Just having more area and a fence to put things against, it makes so many things easier and repeatable.

    all good except you didn't explain the T fitting used for bolting down the table to the drill table, but I can work thru that. 🙂

    What hardware store are you finding the star knobs? And in what department? I have only been able to find them on the web, but would love to get them locally if possible.

    This is exactly what I need. Nice project for the uncoming month.

    Clean and simple design i like it, you could also mark graduations (+/- from drill center) near both Tslot rails for setting the fence up quicker.

    You Should add some velvet to the bottom of the fence to keep from scratching and you won't need to re-apply the finishing wax as often. just a thought

    Thanks for the video!  I really like the tip of using the toilet mounting bolts in your t-slots.

    Hey Steve, first of all great video as always. Second thing, how do you ensure that your fence is perpendicular to the drill bit. Say you want to drill a series of holes along the same line.

    I only need 3 more tools in my shop before I can really start building. I need a drill press, a bandsaw and a router table. Some day I will have a nice shop…. some day.

    After all these years, is there anything you would change about your drill press table?

    This answered my t-slot questions. Same technique can be used for a router table….just saw that this was mentioned below. Great video.

    Another great, simple solution to a common problem. One of the things I like about your videos, Steve, is that you're unpretentious. You don't come on as if you have any great secrets, or that you're a guru. You just show us ways to accomplish things by thinking in unusual ways. Many thanks.

    toilet screws are a great idea. something i see everyday and never have thought to use it that way. its a whole lot cheaper than the kreg system and works just the same.

    Do you ever find that you want your fence not to be at 90 degrees? Just thinking about putting a mitre slot type design in to keep it at 90 degrees?

    Speaking from experience, one of the problems with trying to use a drill press for milling is that the bearings aren't designed for that type of thrust and it may cause the bearings to fail prematurely. If you are milling wood, you might consider using a router as the bearings are designed for a lateral thrust.
    Good luck on your projects Mizerlad.

    Dumb question – the vertical adjustment attaches the table to the column at a single point. Even when I torque this tight there is still rotation. I seems to me there is no way to use the built in up/down platform (even with your fine bench) I am thinking I need to build a separate bench that won't move even if I am milling
