Monday morning started off surprisingly well this week when I arrived at my workshop to find a small package waiting for me, containing a brand-new, bespoke depth stop for my Axminster ED16B pillar drill, courtesy of a good friend from the forums at The Wood Haven.
Up until the sharp drop in temperatures around here recently, I was discreetly working away on a new table for my Axminster ED16B pillar drill. It’s surprising how long it had taken to get to the stage you can see in the first photo, below… Working only two-days each week due to work and other commitments, I reckon it took the best part of three-weeks to get this far – and, I’ve still got some work to do on the fence!
Step inside and I’ll show you some of the main features of this design so far, while also explaining my reasoning behind them.
It’s been a long day, spent mostly sat in the driver’s seat of my car. In the process, I’ve covered a good three-hundred miles… And I now have a new pillar drill to show for it!
