End-Boring at the Drill PressComments (0)
This article is from Issue 44 of Woodcraft Magazine.
Drilling into the end of a
pen blank, dowel, or long workpiece at the drill press can be challenging,
especially if your machine table doesn’t rotate easily or accurately. Rather
than hassling with that setup, I clamp the work in a small hobbyist bench vise
(Woodcraft #141673) that’s bolted to a plywood panel for easy clamping to my
drill press table. The vise adjusts easily, holds the work very securely, and
can be used just as conveniently at a bench or other workstation when not in
use at the drill press.
