Tool Solves Depth Stop Problem On Drill Press
M. Hochstetler, 174 Vogel Rd., Cumberland, Va. 23040 ph 804 492-4295: "I never used the depth stop on my drill press much because it took too long to adjust. To solve the problem I found a nut that would fit the adjustment bolt and welded it between the jaws of a spring clamp. Then I sawed the nut in half. To adjust the depth stop I just lower the spindle on the drill press and slip the nut in place onto the adjusting bolt. It eliminates the need to run the nut up or down the adjusting bolt.
  "I ran PVC air lines in my shop with several outlets. I hooked a portable air tank up to one of the outlets. Since the air tank had a female fitting on the hose with an automatic cut-off, I don't lose pressure on the line whenever I unhook it. The portable tank is always full when I need it."
