Tips & Tricks Issue 82: Magnetic Drill Press Key

Comments (0)

I recently read a drill press review where the writer complained that there was no place on the machine to store the chuck key. If you have a similar situation, do what I did when I got my drill press: I epoxied a rare-earth magnet to the rear end of my chuck key. That way, I can always find it attached to the underside of the cast iron table or other dedicated location. I don’t even have to take my eye off the work to grab it or put it back.
