I spend a lot of time going back and forth from drilling and milling on my ENCO 105-1110 milling machine and I wanted a way to be able to minimize the need to pull off the vise and switch tooling. I had made a wooden work rest that held up for a few months but it was quickly deteriorating. Time for an upgrade.
This is a simple project, but I feel its a very important one. It turns any drill press or milling machine with a vise into a more versatile and efficient machine. Hope you get something out of it. - Brian House
