    Nicely done! I have been thinking about adding a treadmill motor to my harbor freight bench top drillpress. That and maybe finding some way to brace and raise/lower the table. The factory motor is just to wimpy for steel. The table flex get doesn't help with precision.

    What did you use for the motor controller bridge rectifier and potentiometer, or a pulse width modulation controller?

    Is that an old simpson meter on the shelf? Love the build and commented on your YT channel...didn't realize it was a year ago. Inspired to try it on mine and may have another project I've been kicking around and that could use one too. Thanks for sharing this! ~PJ
