My pillar drill is situated very close to the workshop door that in its self is not a problem when I'm using the drill, but when it's not in use with the mdf table attached it protrudes out into the doors entry space to much and makes life difficult entering or leaving the workshop.
I designed this to stay attached to the circular cast iron table all the times.
To get over this I simple unlock the table with the lever lock arms as seen on the left, the radial arm can now swing the table to the left at the same time the table swivels in the radial arm itself. as seen in the photo on the right. I then cut a recess along the back edge of the table to allow it to fold further back ( middle photo). Shown on the right tuck away neatly when not in use.
This now leaves me pondering, As I mentioned earlier a third layer of MDF this would be slipped in between the two layer to incorporate some more ideas that I want to use with this drill, or to change the design underneath completely to give the table much more depth.
More to follow.
