I’m looking for some adjustable-height stands to put on the left and right side of my drill press table top so I can go up and down relative to the height of the product I’m drilling don’t know if there’s some that you can purchase or if someone has some easy plans to fabricate please let me know thank you

I bought an adjustable height roller at Harbor Freight for a reasonable price recently. I can’t remember what I paid but it couldn’t have been that much or I wouldn’t have bought it. It raises to a height of about 4’ which works for my band saw but you could put it on a platform if you need it to be taller. It could also be adjusted to attach to your drill press if you want.
Good luck,
Tim

Is this the item?

My drill press is on bench so this would not work – too high

I bought a pair of the Harbor Freight rollers to use with my table saw. They are really well built. The top flips over to choose between a simple roller or a set of ball casters that allow movement in any direction. The link above is correct. At that price you can hardly go wrong.

FWIW, I bought two of the Home depot flip top stands years ago for my TS out feed. I rarely grab my roller stand because of the stability and total height of these over the roller stand. I’ve built an out feed table since but use these all the time for my band saw, drill press, panel in feed to the TS, and even use the two of them with a hollow core door to get an extra table for the shop when needed for temporary projects. Yes twice what you’ll bay for the HF roller, but I’d recommend you take a look at them, because they are much more useful. If you live in the DC area, shoot me a PM & I’ll give you the roller stand I never use.

Bought mine there too, though not recently. No real art. They go up, down, lock the height, and the rollers roll. If you buy a bunch then you eventually never need to adjust them <g>.
