Modification To Old Drill Press With Table That's Adjustable Up And Down
Richard Heimberger, Lucas, Ohio: "I have an old drill press with a table that's adjustable up and down. There was no way to move it except by hand, which was very difficult as the table is heavy, especially with the vise attached to it. I adapted an old lever jack from a 1965 Plymouth car to make a device that I use to raise and lower the table. I made a sleeve to go around the post so it's loose enough to slide and attached the jack to it. Now I can easily place the table to any height I want. The table is still free to swing to any desired location, as it rides loose on top of the sleeve."
