To answer Daddywolfdawg's question: I secured the table to the existing cast iron drill press "table" with four bolts on the underside. Between the two sheets of MDF, I used a forstner bit and drilled out just enough of a gap for a T-nut to rest flush prior to gluing the two sheets of MDF together. Its easy to secure or remove with a socket or wrench.
TheFridge: I have a small vice that mounts to the existing table… much like the cross slide vice- without the "slide." (you can see it in the upper left in the top picture) It comes in handy when drilling out small pieces of aluminum or brass when making custom hand tools!
