Lee Valley drill press table and MFT stops!
« on: May 03, 2019, 01:18 PM »
Hi. Came across this today and it works great!
A friend asked me to make some new drawer fronts for a cabinet, so I was using one of the old ones for a template. Decided to use the drill press to drill handle holes rather than use my Kreg jig. I went to clamp some wood to the fence as per usual for stops, and had an idea to use some 1/4 20 bolts, knobs and cut some plywood  to make stops. I got out my 1/4 20 jig box and as I was searching thru it on my mft table......I noticed the stops on my mft fence......duh...lol
I had to add a washer under the knob as the bolt was bottoming out on the extrusion on the drill press table, and the stops are just a little too long to fold all the way down, but it worked great.
