    Drill Press crank wheel

    As promised, my wooden version of the drill press table lift crank replacement





    When I use this extension table, the original crank will hit the table and not be able to turn.
    So I did this wooden wheel, that can be turned by hand as a wheel, or as a crank using the handle.
    The wheel is hold on the shaft by a set screw, with a brass threaded insert.
    Chesnut tree wood and something like boxwood for the handle.
