welcome to the site (insert name here). lets see what comes of your first message. tim d can probably whip up a home made drill press for 20 dollars if he hasn't allready. what are your projects.

Hey Roger, thankyou for the welcome. My name is Robert Bahurinsky, I'm sure you mean plans right? If it's a drill press count me in for 5 lol. I know how I'm going to build the base and the drive assembly but I'm not quite sure how to make the spindle travel assembly.
I know this is quite off topic but if any of you are into the car customizing hobby please check out some of my photography

Hi Robert, rest assured, if Roger can "appropriate" the design at a reasonable cost, (like free), he will pass the savings on to you. :lol: :lol: That is Bugly Tools business plan, and a very successful one at that. Just ask all the Regional Distributors. No "nay-sayers" in that bunch.

Wish I could help, but I actually paid money for my drill press ............... I don't think I even considered building one.
That said, I didn't pay a lot for my drill press, and it has been modified (90vDC variable speed motor), of course.

Check out the lindsay publishing website Dave Gingery came up with a homemade drill press. I'm not sure what the book costs. I bought the book on building a home foundry, not bad for 12 bucks and it's coming together nicely!
