Topic tags/keywords: tip drill press drill-driver peg board

Here’s a quick and easy way to keep drill press accessories close at hand when you’re working in the shop. A common pegboard has just the right size holes for inserting the 1/4” shank of most wheels and brushes. For accessories with a larger shank, simply enlarge the hole slightly with a drill.

Not a bad idea at all. I took a 2×4 about 5 ft long and drilled the face of it at about a 25 degree angle, 3 wide in 1” increments with a 3/8” bit for the length of it and mounted it vertically on the wall beside/behind my press. The 25 degree angle slopes towards the ceiling. I have about 80 spots to stick stuff on there. 2×4 was all I had handy at the time or I might have done it different. It works though. I’d have probably used pegboard if I had it. Haha
