It's sitting on my work bench. However I did use it to build this frame. I drilled the holes for the carriage bolts that holds frame together. Really pleased with drill press used the stop block on my Rockler auxiliary top to locate holes.

I for one would like to see the finished cart.
What is that white stuff piled up against the house?
I have nothing but respect for any of you guys that will get out in the winter cold to work on projects.
I started my cutting board project yesterday and did it in increments. From the shop to the house to get warm
and it was 60 degrees. But I wore my jacket and gloves.
Hang in there Gary

Well it was high of 19 today no work here today. It has to be at lest in the 40 for me to work. I have only 1 complaint with the drill press the handle hits the back of the auxiliary table. I clamp the auxiliary table to the back edge of table and drew a centered line . I measured the distance from the center line to the front of auxiliary table and added a 1/4 inch . Then cut a block the width of the sum plus 1/4 inch and the width of drill press table . Then screwed to the center of the auxiliary table. Here is what impressed me with the dill press . I drilled the holes half through and flipped the piece over finished drilling . The holes were perfectly straight. The drill press was square out of the box.

Default Neeed help

Should I use 3/8 bolts to fasten the drill press? Is 2 enough or should there be 4? Should I put 2 or 3 brace in the back to keep from racking?
Should I use carriage bolts?

Agree on putting on a back. Otherwise it's a nice use of space. If you're going to put castors on it, I suggest using two fixed ones on the back and two locking swivels on the front. Make sure the swivel locks the tires and the swivel at the same time.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
