Drill Press Table
#11
  
What does everyone like for a midrange drill press table? I thought about building one and using a Rockler fence. However, for the price of the fence, I could buy a whole Wen or MLCS table. I'm mainly looking for a good square fence that can handle some type of stop for repeatability.

If it matters, I have one of the Lowes Porter Cable drill presses.

Do you miss the fact that the Woodpecker table has the short fence that wouldn't hold something vertical? The Wood River one is pretty similar for less price. I know Woodpecker is very good quality.

I have the same set up as Brad but I have the 36"  DP-Pro Fence on order. It's this one https://www.woodpeck.com/dp-pro-drill-press-table.html

It's taller than the one we both have.

this one has been on my radar and looks to be a good value? I think you could expand on it and make it fit for you?

Too tall of a fence can be a problem with the feed handles hitting the fence. I built mine with the fence all the way across the table and they interfear on some setups.

You can make your own table.
This is one that I recently made.

"This is one that I recently made."

Where did you get the fence and associated hardware?
