Pillar drill adjustable floor stand

Seen here with adjustable machine feet  from axminster bolted through 25mm MDF  with the four securing bolt poking through all adjusted and level in both direction, and then screwed down through with 4" * 12  screws into the floor boards and  joists.

My new drill arrived on time as Axminster had promised   then delivery here five days later, and went back the following week, changed with no problem at all, second one arrived Saturday morning, all assemble to day. Then I set about making this adjustable stand to bolt it to the  workshop floor  I made it adjustable to allow for any floor settlement, it now mounted and secured.  My advice to anyone owning a floor  standing drill, secure it, they can easily be toppled over.
