The Craftsman drill press should be fine. I went down to Lowes and bought a small drill press for around the same price early this year. Just for anything really tall you have to practically take it apart unless the drill will swivel 90*. The small one works fine for me, though.

I don't own a bandsaw so I can't comment on that. Basically all my non-wood cuts are made with either jigsaw (metal/acrylic) or table saw (acrylic).
The newer jigsaws that adjust for wood/plastic/metal are pretty handy.

I have a really good jigsaw (bosch) ...The vibrations were just too much on narrow small pieces...Most of tools you can see in post #80.


So I got this later Dremel Max Saw. This was is good for large pieces where you can use a T as a guide. When it came to small pieces without a guide ..did not work out well. Post #215


Have the regular Deremel as well with its blade:


All these tools work fine. Smaller the piece to cut and if you need straight edges...thats the challenge.

Gosh that's very clean edges you cut there Seanimus! If you don't mind me asking, what is that white stuff sandwiched around the plexiglass? I ruined my brother's jigsaw cutting to fast through 1" inch thick of that super dense speaker material used for high-end subwoofers, that stuff is brutal on a jigsaw!

Thanks SystemLord. Thats two 0.25" White Acrylic sandwiching a 0.125" Transparent Acrylic. My original custom design for Lightbox with CCFL, till I ditched the idea due to SLightbox concept.
That was cut with DremelMax Saw and Bosch jigsaw for oval shapes.
Again DremelMax Saw is great for large pieces with a guide.

Had these cool red 8pins from HongKong..Unfortunately not VGA...have to use the black one.


Also got package from Shoggy for matching bolts from AQ5 for Vandal Bay. And some spare buttons for AQ5 Pro.


Got distracted last night with some other stuff ...and this afternoon was long time away from build..but I do have Band-saw-jig and drill-press...
That Band Saw is huge. The smaller one didn't have a guide...so I just took the larger one which was like $30 more.


Now where should I put it...
Can't rightmost (right of current workbench)---wife said no...she needs her space to take grocerries in the house.
Can't go left of current workbench. I have a sitting bench there which is goes into the wall studs and usually stock up with fire wood for the winter. (not this year..lol).


Maybe put my son's bike (which he never uses) in the basement and clear that space up. And put "new" workbench left of chop-saw.
This Canon T4i takes great shots (without flash) with minimal light on aperture setting:


I am sure I will find some 6x10 in there to make a new workbench. Probably not 36" tall like current workbench. More like 32" like the one the chop-saw is on.


Got this featherboard to hold pieces while using the bandsaw...Son also went shopping with his mom in the mall, while I was in Sears and found these cool gloves.


Have to build a workbench now...

1 inch thick....I used a Circular Saw for that..see post #332 for the subwoofer [2x12]x2 platform with sand under.
Even hard wood the dremel max saw or jig saw will crap out. Circlur saw ....Anyways tomorrow I'll post pictures for the cutting really thick wood 2x10. Also note treated 2x10 is so much denser than regular 2x10...the circular saw will eat through that real quick

For reasons that I can't divulge...I have been compelled to post in this thread immediately. The topic is unimportant at the time. What's important is a promise that was made to me. I am fulfilling half of this pact. The other 1/2 must be completed as soon as possible.

Your turn, Seanimus. biggrin.gif Bring on Catniss.

Half the stuff in box

Other half assembled to split the weight...


Left stuff here...so when I do the workbench I can atleast lift it in two pieces:


Have to dismatle this ..[2x12]x2 otherwise any longer car in the future will not fit in garage.


Which means 8 foot workbench here with [2x10]x2


Not going to build these type of drawers which can hold like 100 pounds each.


cpaChris what you talking about...? hehe
