Did this video help you?

Dad Ojeda: ty steve.

Larry Panchuk: all good except you didn't explain the T fitting used for bolting down the table to the drill table, but I can work thru that. :)

BadWithComputer: Clean and simple design i like it, you could also mark graduations (+/- from drill center) near both Tslot rails for setting the fence up quicker.

Jeremy Thompson: What hardware store are you finding the star knobs? And in what department? I have only been able to find them on the web, but would love to get them locally if possible.

Hans de Groot: This is exactly what I need. Nice project for the uncoming month.

Shawn Barrett: YourcallWoodWorking1. hey steve love your vids keep up the great work.I made a router table last week with your split fence idea. Works great

Steven Peck: The plans for this are now free from Woodsmith http://www.woodsmith.com/files/issues/208/drill-press-table.pdf

David Zakrzewski: You Should add some velvet to the bottom of the fence to keep from scratching and you won't need to re-apply the finishing wax as often. just a thought

Mischa Vroomans: +Steve Ramsey could you make drumsanders for the drillpres and a table fore it?

HonestDoubter: Why, exactly, in the hell did you choose Alanis Morissette? ;) Love your channel man. Keep up the great work!

Adam McMillen: Nice use of random hardware

FLKeyz76: Thanks for the video! I really like the tip of using the toilet mounting bolts in your t-slots. 

andrew p: hay steve i made a drill press table and it turnd out good thanks for making this vid

Eric Lindberg: I got the same ryobi drill press for christmas and I am looking into making a drill press table for it and this video should help me out! Thanks Steve

dave gale: hey steve is that a Ryobi drill press

mmmarzouk: Hey Steve, first of all great video as always. Second thing, how do you ensure that your fence is perpendicular to the drill bit. Say you want to drill a series of holes along the same line.

ILLICITVHSLE: That intro was awesome

chickenpoper: wow im 12 and i understand everything you said..alas i dont have a drill press...but im getting one soon :) (i make my own circuit boards and i need a drill press to mill the holes

DawgYankee: quick question Steve...at what point do you secure your table to the steel drill press table? I can't figure out how you got the 4 bolts through the 3/4" ply and steel table after the 1/4" ply was glued up...What am I missing?? Please reply as I plan on building one over the upcoming weekend. Thanks.

Steve Ramsey: @bsingin64 I should have showed that part. I used those little inset nuts (I'm not sure what they are called). They inset into the table from the top, under the thin plywood laminate and the bolts just screw into them from underneath.

Matt Christians' motovlog: the song IRONIC

chevos81: Sweeeeeeet!!! Thanks :^)

nickmcgowan16: anyway you could show us how to make a router table

Larry Pierce: Did your up and down table crank get in the way after building this ??

Jose posada: Realy good video thanks for shering

Ycreek: Cool table. I'm gonna attempt to make one. Ditch the Alanis Morrisette though.

Buzzsawman: I like this video...you have come up with a novel way to cut a T slot...I have been using a T slot bit in my router but this is a far better way..the only time I will use my bit from now on is if I need a stopped T slot

Geni M: @stevinmarin Can you maybe post a close up picture of what they look like? I really want to make this and can't get a good look at the nuts you talk about. thanks

Billy Ensign: Hi Steve, Thanks, just did my drill press like yours, like the dovetail panel. Bandsaw box next. Billy

1airgforce1: Hi there , on the topic of tables, what is the best material for router table. Thanks Anthony.

Steve Ramsey: @MrTotalybadical That is a great idea, in fact I may do that to mine.

Brandon Wittwer: Hey Steve, Love the vids. One question on this one. How do you bolt it down? are those T-nuts on the top of the table and a really well measured hex bolt. I imagine a 1 inch bolt and an embedded T-nut. Is that it?

circledancer: More coolness Steve, my ancient press could use one!

Steve Ramsey: @SemiTall Wow...that's a drag. All I can suggest is find a local machinist who can make it.

Matthew Robinson: Do you ever find that you want your fence not to be at 90 degrees? Just thinking about putting a mitre slot type design in to keep it at 90 degrees?

Alan Webster: At Lowes they are in the drawers by the nuts and bolts section

Summers Woodworking: So you used carriage bolts. That's what I was thinking about doing but I believe Steve did something different.

romanticprincess8888: that's so cool :D

x9x9x9x9x9: I only need 3 more tools in my shop before I can really start building. I need a drill press, a bandsaw and a router table. Some day I will have a nice shop.... some day.

Gerry Met: This is what YouTube is for!

BigFatLoserDude: I like this design. Can you tell me what section of the hardware store that you found the knobs?

Gregg DeVaux: I built this table a couple of months ago and it works GREAT ! Thanks Master Mere Mortal a great tip. Great vid

azorenhoch: lol @ 1.00 ;) but you're right! good vid.

Barry Miller: After all these years, is there anything you would change about your drill press table?

Nikola Matović: Hello Steve reporting from Serbia regularly monitors and you really want to cool your footsteps and go as first wanted to ask you a question that you could send me specific and detailed dimensions of the table for.Not coping very well with the English language but I think you understand what I wanted to say and what I wanted to ask. the drill I tried to make it.

Gerald Too: After watching this video I subscribed!

Buzzsawman: steve the reason that they don't make big tables on drill press tables is....castiron tables would drag the drillpress over. if you put a heavy cast iron table on the front combined with the weight of the head of the drill press...you would have to make the base of the drill press three or four times the size so that it wouldn't overbalance. That applies to both floor and table models...because there are not many people know who actually bolt thier drill presses down

velcroman11: Being as tight as a fishes ...... I noted that the sliding board is centred under the drill head. If you off-set the board, say 2/3 inches from centre, it would mean that when the board gets too damaged you can put it out and turn it around. I'm going to be busy this weekend building drill press table. Gee, 30 years putting up with a 8 x 10" plate "DUH" and a nail in the wood box puzzel.

flywelder: great project and video! thanks! Could you do a video on how to adjust the spindle return spring? I have a Delta 12 inch bench top drill press , very similar to yours, and the spindle will not stay up but falls back down to the work surface every time. Also show me how to get the handle cover off, so that I can get to the spring that I know is under neath there. Thanks
