Nice Drill Press Table (5/5), May 27, 2012

By William Logan (Bergen County Ne US)

I just finished installing this
Drill Press Table to my Shop Fox 1668 Oscillating Drill Press. I hade to make some modifications by re-locating & re-drilling the two mounting holes. This was easy using a 1 3/8" Forstner Bit then using a 3/8" drill bit for the recess. I also routed out the fence MDF and mounted a metal T-Slot. Piece of cake, however MLCS should consider using a metal T-Slot in the fence instead of the MDF to prevent tear out if you happen to over-tighten the stop block. I recommend this table to anyone who owns a drill press. I also recommend purchasing the two hold down clamps to go with the table. With just a couple of simple modifications it'll work like a champ.


Drill Press Table (4/5), Oct 8, 2008

By Scott Dixon (Roy UT US)

I have owned this table for over a year now and it never comes off my drill press. It is very functional and easy to use. A great value for the price. I have also made custom inserts for my drum sanders which make it even more useful.


Dave Holcomb (4/5), Nov 29, 2009

By David A. Holcomb (Gulf Breeze Fl )

I like this table. I did have to re-drill the table's mounting T-cap nuts to accommodate my Delta DP 350's wider table. The two holes were easily accomplished using a 1 3/8 inch Forstner bit and standard drill bit for it's center hole. The available T-Track Hold Down clamps are a must although somewhat pricey. I would recommend these products.


Drill Press Table - Nice (4/5), Jan 23, 2012

By Bob Martin (Newbury Park Ca US)

Just received this table today. Installation was very straight forward. The Hold Downs are a must. One area of concern is the Fence. The T-Slot for the stop block is routed in the MDF which if you are not careful looks like potential damage to the fence can be caused if over tightened. My plan is to route it out and install a Metal T-Slot. Other then that is is a great table!


Great for the price (4/5), Feb 11, 2012

By Robert Grot (Burnt Hills NY US)

I would give this table and fence easily 5-stars if you factor in the price and I would buy another one in a heartbeat.
With that in mind I dropped to 4 because the fence stop should have come with an elongated t- bolt. The regular t-bolts will tear through the bare MDF slot. Fortunately mind spun on the first try so removal was easier than it could have been. Not having the proper t-nut I repaired mine by gluing (used GOOP as it is handy and the torque load will be small) a 1/2x1in piece of 8ga (0.128) steel that I snipped from on old fluorescent light housing. Much thicker than that and the bolt will no longer slide.
I assume MLCS will make it good that the small axial alignment brackets that align the mounting knob and strengthen the mounting hold down were missing. I notified MLCS and fully expect them to send the parts. If not this rating would be reduced since I feel they affect the longevity of the hold down clamps as evidently did the original designer.
Re: the sitting proud t-slots mentioned by Rick Morris a year ago January, I hope that MLCS saw it and offered a replacement. That would have been a deal breaker for me.

drill press table (4/5), Feb 24, 2012

By John F Browne (Taftville Co US)

Wonderful item, some drill press tables holes must be elongated for base,missing M8 3 9/16 bolt (back plate hold down bolt), bought at hardware store.

Would recomend to any drill press owner.


Pretty good (4/5), Jul 2, 2014

By Anonymous ( )

They say it fits most drill presses, but not my Craftsman table mount (small)drill press. You have to move the MLCS table way forward so the height crank can rotate, and you have to remove one of the three arm handles on the press to lower the drill. On small work the chuck hits the fence. Still, its way better than not having this table. I was able to accurately drill multiple parts in the same location, which is what matters most. I will cut down the fence in the middle to accommodate the chuck. Makes my drill press much more accurate. It's worth dealing with the rest.


Not bad....But!! (3/5), Jan 16, 2010

By Rick Morris (Dorothy Ne US)

I ordered one of these for my new Ridgid drill press I recently purchased and it arrived in excellent shape and was easy to mount and put together. I do have 1 major complaint though. The metal T slots on the table were not routed deep enough so they are above the surface and as I slide something around on it to drill it gets hung up on the metal runners. If you slide it on top of the protruding runners you are now drilling a hole off of 90 degrees square. Why they couldn't have routed the channels a bit deeper so the metal T slots were even with the table top, or even a little below, is beyond me. When I get a chance I am going to take them out and re rout to a better depth. Also be aware that the stop block channel has no metal T track so if you over tighten the stop block there is a chance you will break out the MDF. All in all it is worth the price with the free shipping if you want to take the time and make it right.


Mounting (3/5), Jul 7, 2011

By Charles Wohlt (Gray TN US)

I bought this table a year or so ago and I still use it today. Unfortunately, I had to mount mine with and intermediate table. BEFORE YOU PURCHASE THIS ITEM, READ the compatibility note and be sure you know your drill press. This unit does not mount directly to many drill presses.

MLCS NOTE: This item is designed to mount directly to as many drill presses as possible. However, it is not universally compatible due to the wide variation in drill press designs. We provide the compatibility note so customers are aware before purchasing of any potential mounting issues based on the specifics of their drill press.


Drill Press Table (3/5), Dec 14, 2012

By Joe Mustola (Clatskanie OR US)

Just received the table,had to redrill new holes to fit my craftsman drill press.
One problem a had was with the fence. The bolt holes on the fence were about 1/4" wider than the t-track.I had to grind down the heads on the hex head bolts and drill over size holes in the fence in order for it to fit in the track. Now I can move the fence without it binding. Other than that it looks like a nice table and should work better for wood working.


No Instructions (3/5), Jul 30, 2014

By maniac424 (Cross River NY US)

It would be nice if they included some instructions for mounting the table to the drill press.

****MLCS NOTE: The mounting instructions will vary based on the configuration of the many different drill presses on the market. Our woodworkers are happy to assist with specific set-up questions via toll-free phone or email.***

OK, but... (4/5), Sep 29, 2010

By Ken Presser (Cary NC US)

As far as providing a wider, deeper table area for my Delta Floor model drill press it does that well. I find the fence slightly hard to adjust and the height of the fence blocks my laser crosshairs.

The tracks for the hold-downs could be closer in or another one provided to clamp short pieces.

The biggest problem is that there are no replacement inserts available for sale for the thing. They're not hard to make but laminating and cutting little square pieces of MDF just the right thickness is a pain. It would be simple for them to supply a pack of 4 replacement inserts for a modest cost to solve this issue.

Overall I'm pleased with it, but it could be better.

MLCS NOTE: We have just added replacement inserts for these tables to our product line. You can order #9759, a set of 3, for $5.95.

Works (sorta) (3/5), Jan 11, 2014

By Russell Watson (Sebastian FL US)

I received this today and gave it a try on 3/4 poplar. It eventually made it through working from both sides. Overheated the tip even at 650 rpm. Had to extend the tip to get through. Seems like 1/2" is the thickest material you want to try. No instructions or the allen wrench necessary for adjustments and no mention of where one might obtain a replacement cutter blade. (It is reversible though)
