  • drill press question

    i'm looking for a 8 or 10 inch drill press but i don't know which brand has any quality built into it anymore. the only one that catches my eye right now is an oscillating Shop Fox. does anyone know anything about this brand?

    Hi Rob

    Is there any particular reason why you want such a drill press? If you tell us what you're looking to achieve with it, we might be able to give you better advice .

    There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

        i think the shopfox would be nice. Mine is a cheaper Harbor freight floor standing, and no complaints with it. You are thinking right, buy as big as you can afford now, so you dont shop for one again in a year or two. Dale

          I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

          I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

          First off how thick is the board you cut?
          When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
          that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
          for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

          I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

          Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

          Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it) make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...
