01 Dec Veritas Drill Press Tables and Fences
Veritas designed the larger of these two tables to be compatible with most major brands of drill presses without modification. It fits any drill press with a swing of 14″ or greater (7″ from bit to column) and comes supplied with all mounting hardware needed for installation in either through-slots or blind T-slots. (The small version works with a 12” or greater swing.) Precisely milled from 18mm Baltic birch plywood with a low-friction laminate surface, the 15-1/2″ × 23″ tabletop provides stable support for work. It has two keyhole slots for mounting the included fence, as well as four standard 3/4″ dog holes for clamps, dogs or other accessories. To support through-drilling, an opening in the middle accepts a 4″ square sacrificial wooden insert (one supplied; replacements can be easily made from any 6mm or 1/4″ wooden sheet material). The 20″ machined aluminum fence permits accurate, repeatable stock positioning, and comes with hardware for mounting on the table. It will also work in a pair of standard T-tracks or keyhole slots on other workshop fixtures. It has a pair of laminate-clad sub-fences (each 10-1/2″ long) that can be opened to allow off-edge drilling, and a T-slot track on top for mounting jigs and accessories (such as the optional Veritas 1-1/2″ flip stop). Straightforward to mount and use, this is a practical, well-made upgrade to a woodworking drill press. Made in Canada.
The large table is 15-1/2″ × 23″ and is listed at $89 (item 05J6820). It is currently out of stock but is expected by December 18. The small table is 10-1/2″ × 15-1/2″ and lists at $69 (item 05J6810). It is in stock.
