    How much was it anyhow? I've bumped one of those up the list for tools I need to have. I have a mini drill press, but it only can drill 2 inches deep and I need to drill 2 1/2 deep most of the time..so I have to clamp, drill, raise wood, re-clamp and drill. Plus, mine just doesn't have the power to hog out with a 2" forestner bit.

    Kevin as Barry has stated before, it doesn't really exist without some bragging photos. Share the new toy with some visuals!! I want to see this new toy.

    I love my drill press, but my arm gets tired after the 100th or so fretwork hole. I like to try and do all the holes before I start the cutting. Call me anal. I like to finish one phase before moving on to the next. Of course, there are always holes I miss, so I don't take the bit out until I've got the entire piece of work cut out.

    You will love it Kevin. I own a drill press and would not live without that gadget.

    very nice grab Kevin. having a drill press like that also means stack cutting will be so much easier, I wish I had the room for a standup drill press but alas

    I'm SO jealous!! I missed a chance at a radial drill press and have kicked myself for over a year now for not taking advantage of the opportunity. You're gonna get some good use out of it Kev!!

    Bill,
    It's a Rikon. I bought it at my local woodcraft.

    Funny part of the story. My wife gave me a $50 gift card to woodcraft for my birthday as I told he I wanted a set of "board buddies" for my table saw. We went for lunch near the store so she came with me and decided to wait in the van while I went in to get them. The look on her face was priceless when I came out with the board buddies AND all 150 lbs. of this box. Hehehehe (guess I forgot to mention to her that I was also buying this).

    Steve,
    It means I can use my drill press on patterns up to 34" wide. I've had a regular drill press for years, but this one has a 34" swing (radial press).
    I already have the pattern in mind that will be close to that big (probably about 18 X 24).

    Kevin, does this mean patterns with more holes? I have a craftsman 15" 12 speed that I have had for several years and would be lost without it now. A press is a very nice addition to your tools. Glad you got it. Steve

    No longer will I be concerned with the size of the project I have to drill. I picked up the little toy today.

    Celtic knot-shamrock cross
    by Ennobee
    My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

    Hi Jim.
    glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...

    Had to smile at that, as I bought that exact same hammer drill, for about the same reason

    Reply to Scroll saw table angle??
    by jim_mex
    I have my Dewalt mounted onto an adjustable metal stand I made which after setting the table at different degrees of inclination I find 7 1/2" degrees to be fine for me. However before deciding on whatever angle you want to set the table you need to decide what seat height of stool or chair you...
