DIY Drill Press Mill

In my junior year at OSU I found myself needing a mill frequently and had no way to access one without driving several hours. I came up with a small, lightweight solution to the problem by attaching a small xy table to my drill press and using an aluminum miter jig as a clamp. The results are passable for light duty work, but the setup time isn't the best and you have to feed the pieces slowly in order to keep everything from vibrating too much.


  1. VSR stands for "variable speed reversible". These drills come in both corded and cordless versions as will most all the drills we discuss from here on out. check out drillpresspro

  2. Contrast this with a revolving/pneumatic mallet drill where simply the bit is quickened to the work.

  3. Losing weight or weight reduction is a hot topic nowadays. I am sure that these tips provided will great help for people looking to reduce weight especially persons like me. dremel tool
