Outfeed Support Wall Mount
The fold-up design of the outfeed support on page 30 makes it easy to store just about anywhere. But if you want to store the support off the floor, check out the handy wall mount shown in the main drawing and detail below.
The mount is just a couple thick hardwood strips glued and screwed together to fit under the upper stretcher and between the legs of the support. A hardboard cleat attached to the front edge keeps the support in place (detail 'a'), but still allows easy removal.

Extra-Long Drill Press Fence
Vertical Drilling Jig
Drilling a perfectly aligned hole in the end of a long workpiece, like the legs of the outfeed support on page 30, is a tough task. Fortunately, the jig shown at right makes the task easy and accurate.
The jig is just a fence with a support screwed to the back to keep it square. A cleat attached to the fence registers the workpiece. And a plywood base allows you to securely clamp the jig to the drill press table.
To use the jig, first loosen your table and swing it to the side. After clamping the workpiece in place, simply adjust the position of the jig to align the bit. Then after tightening up the table and clamps, you can drill the hole.
The small size of some drill press tables can make it almost impossible to drill long workpieces, like the cleats of the lumber rack on page 22. There's just not enough support for the workpiece, especially if you drill near the ends. To make the job easier, I used aluminum angle to make an extra-long fence and then added some plywood supports (drawing at right).
To act as outriggers, the supports are screwed to the bottom of the fence near the ends. They provide the extra "hand" needed for a long workpiece. Once the supports are added, simply align the fence to accurately position the workpiece under the bit. Then you can clamp the fence to your drill press table and get to work.
