    Doug,

    I like the design and workmanship. It is a great inspiration for making one. I like the table hole going all the way through for drilling into longer rods.

    I have wanted this type of sensitive table lift drill press after seeing an ad for a Dumore Sensitive Drill Press but could never afford the high price tag. Your video proves there are alternatives. I hope you will be selling your plans at HMT.

    Thank you for all the details.

    Paul

    Thanks Paul
    I always wanted one of these too, but like you say the price tag was way out there for no more than I would use it, I will use it don't get me wrong but I would never buy one at there price tags, so I came up with this instead.
    I am going over the blue prints to make sure things are in order, as you know things change as you build, I'll be sending the prints to Jon in a few days and he'll post them in Plans for sale
