    Turn a Magnetic Drill into a handy portable drill press

    I know many of you wouldn't buy a magnetic drill because you see no need for one. With that being said watch this. That's me doing the video. I build this many years ago. Click on to the video below

    Thanks for the video, Vernon. Now I see these mag drills in a different light.

    I found it very useful in the shop. I think it's a easy project many could build.

    Great idea. DPs are a staple tool of the typical shop. The base looks rock solid. Thanks for sharing Vernon.
