Default MLCS Drill Press Table

I would like to get a table for my benchtop drill press. Does anyone have any opinions on this one? I usually like stuff from MLCS so I figured this must be decent for only $60.

I have looked at that a few times and think I want one also and price is right I guess, just never pulled the trigger. Been buying other things. I hope someone responds with good or bad reviews

In my view, a lot for your money.
But if precision drilling on close centers (+or-.005 or better), say in metal, plastic and wood, is your goal, then maybe not. Appreciate, that your table and the press itself are equally important.
Given a good press and a crummy table, (or the other way around), you get unpredictable results. This sandwhich, from a piece of aluminum jig plate.

I'm going to build my own, soon. There are lots of plans in magazines and on the web, and they are not too difficult to do.

Cheers,
Roger

I'm not interested in making my own right now. If a $60 table will work for average home use, then I'd rather just put the money towards that.

I think I'm going to give in and make my own. I priced out a smaller (12" x 24") version of this one and it won't cost me much more than $60. Does this look decent?
