Description

In Detail

Some pillar drills are constructed with a bias towards metal drilling, and don't quite fully meet the needs of the woodworker. The Axminster Pillar Drill Table helps to redress the balance by increasing the work area and making drilling safer and more accurate.

The MDF base board, which bolts to the slots in the drill table, measures 610 x 305 x 25mm and an aluminium extrusion forms a full length, 75mm high fence. This fence features adjustable fence plates, a repeat stop, L&R self adhesive scales and a rear dust extraction port 62.5mm o/d. Two T-slots at 270mm centres are provided with material clamps and can be used for fixing custom made drilling jigs for repeatable accuracy, morticing etc. In the centre of the base is a removable sacrificial insert. When using the pillar drill with a bobbin sander attachment, make an insert with a central hole and by lowering and raising the quill full use can be made of the abrasive, plus the table will give all round close support. The Axminster Pillar Drill Table extends the functions of the machine and makes it far more woodworker friendly.

Drill Press Table

I bought an Axminster ED16B2 drill press and of these tables (£30 then) about 9 years ago, apart from the T-tracks removing themselves instantly it's been fine. I replaced the useless tiny screws in the T-tracks with very narrow countersunk bolts and large washers underneath and I've never had a problem with it since.
I will add that if I needed to replace this I would now make my own...

Don't buy

I usually don't write reviews unless I am really impressed or really disappointed. This one was really a disappointment.

The first one arrived with top all scratched. Axminster, as usual, showed great customer service and dispatched a new one same day and collect the crappy one.

Now second one too, had some scratched but can be ignored as wan't as bad as first one. I installed it to my Fobco Star drill and to play with it I clamped a piece of Oak to drill some forstner holes in it.

As I started tightening the clamps, both the T slide tracks lifted off the drill press.

I would have returned it but I drilled custom holes in the table to fit to my drill press. The worst £85 spend ever.

If you are ready to pay for this, then spend a little more and buy a better one, or make one

T Track Design Goof

I was not happy with the two clamps provided for holding work whilst drilling. The knobs supplied with my table were the small ones shown and did not enable much pressure to be applied. There are LARGER knobs in just one view?
Using M8 T Nuts I made some bigger knobs, but replaced bolts as well - NOT M8s!
When I tried my modified clamps, I was mystified as to why the workpiece still moved. I saw that the T track was lifting out of the table as pressure was applied by the clamps. I checked and found that the T track was retained by two tiddly 1/2 inch long woodscrews going into MDF! About as effective as a chocolate teapot!
I replaced all four screws with countersunk-head machine screws going though the table and having decent sized washers under the nuts on the underside.
With big knobs, & modified track fitting, I can now clamp very effectively, but I wonder if the designer of this table had ever used one with a workpiece that needed reasonable clamping force. I doubt it.

Excellent table

Bought this with my ED16B2 after having read all the reviews here and have found it to be an excellent product.

The dust port does limit the depth of table, but this depends upon the throat of your press and is easily removed. I haven't needed to for anything I've worked on so far - mainly morticing.

The table attaches and sqaures up very easily to the cast iron table. The bolt holes are in two corners of the disposable insert and are not at 90 degrees. To overcome this simply rotate the iron table underneathg until the holes line up. In any case so long as the fence is aligned so as the work piece doesnt run out of true with the bit the table can be at any angle.

The table is great for repetitive work, is well finished and very substantial. I have a couple of home made jigs in the pipeline for it already. Made my life a lot easier. Cheaper and better than making your own. Very pleased with it.
