Tips & Tricks: Drill Press V-Fence

Comments (0)

This article is from Issue 102 of Woodcraft Magazine.

While making a decorative disk, I needed to drill a series of holes near its perimeter, insetting them a consistent distance from the disk’s edge. Normally, I might create a jig by installing a pin of some sort in a scrap panel that would allow the disk to rotate on the drill press table. But I didn’t want to drill into the underside of the disk to create the center pivot point. Instead, I bandsawed a V-cut in a board that I then clamped to the drill press table. This custom fence provided perfect support for the job.
