Holding a workpiece against the table and fence when drilling out a mortise at the drill press can be a hassle. I solved the problem with this hold-down drill press jig made from an inline skate wheel bought at a sports store.
Here is a production drilling jig designed to speed up the drilling of multiple parts.
It is no secret that the metal table on a drill press is not suitable for woodworking. But with a couple hours in your shop, you can give your drill press an upgrade.
Heres a quick-fix jig that will come in handy the next time you need to bore a vertical hole in the end of a long workpiece.
What makes this mortising machine so fantastic is the fact that it can create perfect mortises quickly and easily. The way it works is simple. The workpiece is clamped to a sliding table, and the router is mounted to a carriage that travels on a pair of drawer slides. By pulling the lever arm forward, the router bit is plunged into the workpiece. Then you just slide the table back and forth to rout the mortise.
