Drill press chip collection

The area around my drill press sure gets messy from the wood chips that I’m always brushing off the table. I finally realized that, rather than vacuuming the chips from the floor afterward, it made more sense to mount the vacuum’s floor sweep attachment to the edge of the table with a few screws. I leave it there permanently since I don’t use the attachment for much else, but you could hang it using keyhole slots for easy removal if you like.

Editor’s Note: To avoid the chance of losing the chuck key, a bit, or some small part, try attaching a piece of metal mesh over the sweep’s opening.
