no previous part Part 1 of Drill Press Station series Part 2: bottom drawer for part boxes installed »

My ongoing dedicated mobile cart stands for machinery. Here is 75% completion of my drill press stand. Nearly same construction as my miter stand / air compressor stand with slight differences. I wanted a tall back for holding drill bits and forstner bits. Along the way, I thought it would be ideal to put my battery chargers and battery operated tools up top in 3” conduit sleeves to save space. Many drill press carts I’ve seen have wasted space above so will see how this pans out. Also left space on the sides for holding other tools such as my sawzal and possibly my Kreg Jig setup. This area is flexible as of yet.

well, that big space behind yer drill press to my pea braim needs some 1/4” peg board to shove all those little wire wheel gizmo into

and that space underneath is abosolutley crying for drawers in which to store drill bits.

Whats the hold=up….just make it a work station.

I like the compactness of it all with the hand drills above. Good thinking.
