Looking good Levon

You know me,,, you may want to move the motor over by 1/2" or so,,,so the belt is running true,it's not a big deal but it will save the belt,, plus the load on the upper shaft , the load so be more to the base side..it looks like it way out on the shaft.. but it could be just the picture

Smile Lookin' GOOD!

Lookin' GOOD Levon!

I'll bet those mobile bases are less hassle than the ones I got from Rockler!
Rockler's have three wheels with the center front one being removable or able to flip up so the weight rests on two corner feet. I had to mount it on the inside, under my table saw because it hurts when you kick it!
(Of course I got em' on sale.)

Nice work on the mount for the drill press too!
I was always afraid of their small footprint and tipping. You solved that nicely!

Cordially,
Gerry

thanks Gerry, yes the drill press is very stable and it gets it up a little for rotating the levers. the bases do move great. i got them at sears for 49 dollars. they are made by htc. they arent the top of line htc, but work great! i got home with them from sears and saw them on sale at woodcraft for 44dollars, lol

But shipping would have boosted the price substantially.

I'm going by Harbor Freight tomorrow for some more C clamps. 3" are $1.87 with coupon, limit 8.

Tell you how cheap I am; I knocked my small square on the floor today and the little threaded locking pin broke. Rather than buy a new square for lack of a pin, I cut down a 1/4-20 bolt, ran a die on the un-threaded part for 10/32, used a Dremel tool to cut and filed it to make a new one.

Cordially,
Gerry

you are right about the shipping. it pays to be as thrifty as possible, the money you save can be spent for some other gadget that makes woodworking easier. lol i went to hf last weekend and picked up some of the 18 inch clamps that have the trigger on them. they had em for 1.99 i bought a mobile base there that had the 4 corners and you used hardwood to connect them, but then i saw the bases i got at sears for only 10 bucks more. i took the hf base back.
