  • Drill Stand

    Good morning ladies and gentlemen - I mainly do fretwork, but also make toy cars, trucks for sale or donation.. I need to know where I can find one of those stands that lets me use my hand drill like a drill press.

    I get my wheels centered a majority of the time, but I do not like to waste wood and I'd like to drill perpendicular holes all of the time. I made a jig that attaches to my 5" sander so I get perfect circles all of the time so all problems covered except that drill stand - I have seen them in scroll saw books but with no info on where to find 'em.

    Thanks

    Jeff

    I have seen used ones on Ebay, but for the prices you can almost buy a bench sized drill press at Harbor Freight.

            I have a table mounted one i bought at Sears many years ago ...its my go to when i need a quickie hole drilled rather than plow my way to my big one buried in the rear of the shop.....it is surprisingly accurate and stabil.the drill can be rotated to use with a wire/grinding wheel although i have NEVER used that feature..seems to hold alighnment very well....saw one on the shelf at our local sears hardware store last year on clearance......(so there are still a few floating arround.) price was in the mid 20's if i remember.....i know i never paid that much.......(25-30 years back.)...the one i have is just like a standard drill press .......except you clamp your hand drill in place. a very stabil and useful unit'

                  Ray, I have 5 dremel tools (aquired over the years) the drill press that they designed will fit all but 1 due to the nose configuration....anyhow.........the unit is not the most stabil but DOES get the job done.....the only bad feature is that it seems to have a limited use due to its small size..i see no reason why it won;t do the job for drilling out wheel holes though.....small enough to do a decent job.

                    Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                    I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

                    Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

                    That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....

                    Just a word of caution about the size of the blade hole. When I used a DeWalt years ago in the infamous community woodshop, and also with my more recent experiences with the Jet, if you do much bevel cutting at a steep angle, you will cut into the table. That's why inserts have the slot that can be...
