My garage shop
I've been fortunate enough to have had a neighbor who decided he no longer had time to do any woodworking. When we got to know each other fairly well, He started giving me his tools, most of which belonged to his dad. These included a jointer, a bandsaw, two B and D workmates and a bench top drill press. As I already had a bench top drill press, I knew it would be nice if I had a floormount. Since drill presses consist of three main components, it should be easy enough. Until I started looking into 5 foot posts. I called a local steel supply in Phoenix, and was able to buy a 5 foot bar of solid aluminum for 65 bucks. Since I needed it to be mobile, I made a box, attached four casters to it and viola! Now I have a mobile floormount, thanks to my neighbor.
