I was watching a Youtube video a few years back on some random subject when I spotted a tray like this in the background on a drill press. I copied it and present it to anyone who may think it handy.

Made from all scrap from other projects. Eighth inch plate, thin wall 5/8 inch box steel, and a muffler clamp. Cut some tool box drawer liner to lay in and tossed all the stuff that used to sit on my drill press foot getting covered in shavings and cutting oil. Very handy for what little work it took.
Thanks for lookin'

I like that, and will steal it too! First though, to turn down some hydraulic pipe (left over from the new 10k psi ring main at work, hefty stuff) to make a new column for the budget drill, I keep running out of room on anything other than pieces of plate once I have a vice and the keyless chuck in place!
But... it needs to be longer than my lathe will take at the mo'...

Thanks for posting. I like this a lot and I'm sure glad you had a sharp eye when you were watching you tube.

Just noticed this thread. Thanks Spike. All I have to add is I really, really need this tray idea. I'm so tired of crap falling off my drill press. This is just what the doc ordered.

Excellent idea. Hats off to whomever you stole it from! :) (j/k).

When I build mine I think I'll bend up a little strip of sheet metal into a half circle and tack weld it around the opening where the column is - to prevent small drills or bits of hardware from finding the gaps and falling out.

Nice job!

Nice job. I've had a cheapie plastic tray that swivels I bought from sears yrs ago on mine. I think it cost about $10 if I remember right. Not the most elegant, but still working. No where near as heavy duty as a metal one though.

One more thumbs up. Seems I'm always going to get something I need at the drill press. Thanks, Mike
