  • Drilling large hole over small and vice-versa

    Good day

    I have a cheap DP and when I want to change the table height I have to unlock the table and while turning it left/right pull it up or push it down.

    I have no problems till I want to drill a large hole over small hole or vice-versa. In this case you must maintain the table at the same position but, if one drill is long and the other is short, you must re-adjust the table height and it is very difficult to return to the same position so the large hole will be drilled at the center of the small hole or, the small hole over the large hole center.

    So, that's what I did

    Regards

      Excellent pictorial. Thanks for sharing. Another useful insert for a DP table is a round, offset insert. When you blow out a spot on the insert, just rotate it to a clean, new spot. I find that I get a lot more mileage out of the round inserts.

        You should send your ideas to Wood Magazine. You'd make an excellent writer for them.
