  • Rolling bench top drill press cabinet

    Finished this today, finally. Haven't even chucked a bit into the DP yet...but at least I have a nice place to put it! In case any of you recognize me from my earlier post about "Craftsman Red", I had to have HD color match it. It came out pretty well, I think. Now for a drill press table...

    That is sweet
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible

            very nice. How is it for stability? does it want to tip, or run away?

              Looks great, and I like the matching casters.

                It's very stable. It's all 3/4 MDF, and the top and bottom are double thick. It has to weigh at least 50 lbs, empty. Also, the two front casters are swivel/ double locking, so when they are locked it's not going anywhere. A little preliminary testing showed that with all four casters unlocked, even if I push HARD on the top of the DP, the cabinet will move before it wants to tip.

                  Could you re-up the pictures? They're not showing right now.

                    Yeah, what Derek said. I don't get the infamous little red "x", but I don't get to see pictures either.

                      Ack! I think the "upload" function is broken. At least it was last night when I tried from home...don't have the pictures at work with me. I'll try again tonight.

                        Did you go with the red and black motif to match the whole "Craftsman" thing?

                          That did out nice. Good storage and choice of color too.

                            But of course! It's not that I'm a BIG Craftsman fan, but they make some decent stuff. I figured the cabinet may as well match. If I ever get around to building a mobile base with wide table kit for my BT3 (which I don't even have yet [:I] ) it will probably wind up blue and yellow. Raw MDF is pretty "icky", in my opinion.
