The woodpeckers DP table is nice, I have one, but it doesn't help with rotating or tilting the table.

It's a table saw, do you know where your fingers are?

Cheese, 

I see you opted for the mini-micro metal vise.


That’s funny Bryan...your post made my day...seriously...for metal working you need either clamping force or weight or both. The Heinrich is only 40# and thus when you secure it to the Woodpeckers drill press table, even though the clamping track is relatively weak, the weight advantage just means it’s just not going to move.

I should however reveal that I did remove the original fasteners from the Woodpeckers track and rebed the track with construction adhesive and steel t-nuts. That’s the way it should have come from the factory.

But the rotation or tilting of the drill press table is endemic to the manufacturer of the drill press.

I’ve just always thought that a drill press (like a band saw) is such a universal tool that’s it’s difficult to have a “one size fits all” scenario. Everyone uses these tools in a different manner.

I just find the Woodpeckers drill press table to be a nice bridge between metal working and woodworking. It can be used for either and removed when serious metalworking dictates.
