Hi all, Here are some details about the lifting mechanism I build in my drill press table: https://www.lumberjocks.com/projects/415974 I saw this Woodsmith plan and found the idea interestinghttps://www.woodsmithplans.com/plan/drill-press-table/ Looking at my drill press, the diameter of the shaft allowing the table to lift up/down is 1/2” so I found these 1/2” miter gears on amazon https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B004NYAFLS?tag=amz-mkt-fox-us-20&ascsubtag=1ba00-010...
