    Miter saw stand add for a drill press

    ​I work in our basement, i have a small room there.

    Nice place tough, but to be able to use and to get fit all tools i want, i had to find my own solutions.

    This is my solution from how to get drill press verstile and be able to drill long parts with it.

    ​I made a simple add to my miter saw stand, now i can use it when i want to drill holes for the long parts.

    Material is nylon, video at the end shows the manufacturing process.

    ​Whole thing wouldn't have been so usefull if i couldn't use it with the miter saw too.

    I raised the miter saw with 40mm long pipes to get my "drill attachment" to fit under the miter saw.

    Now i don't need to remove or store anything, i can simply lift miter saw away, and place drill to its place,

    and after drilling, just lift the miter saw back on its place.

    Last picture contains measures that i used. If you have Evolution mitre saw stand, you can work with them.

    Otherwise, i hope you got something from the idea.

    Made an simple dustpan under my mitersaw. Fits to the drillpress stand, so got douple use for it.

    Specially heavier metal pieces, drops in to it, instead of floor.
