Default Bench drill modifications

G'day from Sydney. This is my first input to this forum, the reason why is because I read the article on modifying a bench drill to allow greater depth. It' one of those ideas when you read about it and see the photos you think "what a bloody good idea, why didn't I think of that" No only was the initial idea excellent, but the comments on the forum were all sensible and workable. I look forward to more inspiring ideas, regards Ross C.

Welcome to the forum Ross!

I am interested in seeing the post that you are referring to. Can you lead me to it. Searched for it using the title from your post and variations of it with no success.

Thanks

Mike

Thanks Mike, I cant seem to find it either. Basically the author wanted to drill accurate holes in larger boards. i.e. drill a hole 500mm in from an edge. Naturally you cant do this with a standard drill press as the column is only about 220mm away from the drill centre. What he designed was to use standard plumbers fittings and create a section similar in profile to a scroll saw i.e. use four elbow fittings and two pipes with threaded ends about 500mm long to create a gooseneck. I hope this description helps, one photo will give everything you need to get the idea, sorry I don't have a photo, regards Ross C (aka Cobwebs)
