Drill Table

I've been following fellow blogger Steve (Arwen's meandering) as he constructs an outboard motor stand with interest and slight embarrassment. Steve did in depth research and some fairly meticulous planning which resulted in a really nice and practical stand.

By contrast I needed to make a table for newly acquired bench drill and with only a couple of hours to spare threw together a table from some old scraps. It seems to be robust (time will tell) and all the legs are pretty much the same length, plus using the new drill was a dream - for some reason I seem to be unable to drill a straight hole using a hand held drill.

Different strokes, I do admire Steve's approach, it's just not in my character :O)


  1. Very useful is the drill press, aka the vertical lathe.
    First time I’ve seen a machine wearing the hearing protection though.

  2. I should have bought one of these decades ago. Several times lately I have taken drilling jobs to mates places to use their drill press because the accuracy has been so important. As you say Max it is impossible to drill keeping the horizontal and vertical planes precisely at the correct angles. I am going to get me one of these!

  3. Alden - very cheap in machine mart over here, I,ve had my eye out for a second hand industrial one for years unsuccessfully I’m sure this isn’t as good but it will certainly do and probably see me out - hopefully not too soon!

  4. meticulous planning - hahahahahah, oh my sides are splitting - hahahaha - if only you knew my friend - hahahahah
    Stay safe, love the new stand -

  5. Steve - maybe I t should have got this post out earlier in April? Meticulous is a relative thing :O)

  6. my meticulous is can it pass the'from 10 feet away' test.....I'm happy with that. Hope you are all well and safe. Take care now :)
