  • 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 .

      because its a happy medium. its small enough for the scroll work and big enough for any other project i get myself into.

        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

          Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

          We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

          What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
